‘Retrospect Seven’ art exhibit

A new exhibit featuring Hope Arts Gallery students work will be featured for the month of April

The Art Machine Monster is one of the pieces that will be displayed in April's 'Retrospect Seven' art exhibit at the Hope Arts Gallery.

The Art Machine community arts program is excited to present a new exhibit in the Backroom of the Hope Arts Gallery from April 1 to 28.

“Retrospect Seven” is the seventh yearly exhibit at the gallery, showing original works created by participants attending classes and workshops held at The Art Machine during 2015.

The exhibit will feature paper crafts, paintings in water colour and acrylics, both hand built and wheel thrown pottery, crafts and much more created by children, youth and adults of all ages.

The Art Machine, located at 777 5th Avenue in Hope, provides year round community arts programming at reasonable cost to participants.

Join us at the Hope Arts Gallery at 349 Fort Street on Saturday, Apr. 2 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. to view the display, meet the artists and enjoy some refreshments. We hope to see you there. Everyone is welcome! The Gallery, open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., is run by volunteers and is operated under the Hope & District Arts Council.
