Street banners donated to local groups

Raven Strut banners presented to Hope and District Arts Council and Hope Mountain Centre

Kelly Pearce

Hope Arts Gallery celebrated the opening of “Memory  Image  Reality,” featuring the work of Bowen Island artist Greta Smith and Hope artist Jenny Wolpert, with a special presentation of “Raven Strut” street banners to two local organizations.

The banners were designated for the Hope Arts Gallery and Hope Mountain Centre as part of the contract between AdvantageHOPE and the designer.

Diane Ferguson, administrator of the Hope and District Arts Council, accepted one banner which will be live auctioned at the upcoming Owl Street Mingle in October.  Funds from the auction of the banner will support the Hope Arts Gallery which strives to maintain an accessible and interesting variety of art for all visitors, and provides a venue for local artists to display their work.

The second banner was presented to Kelly Pearce, program director of Hope Mountain Centre.  How the banner will be used in their fundraising has not yet been finalized. Hope Mountain Centre works through shared outdoor experiences to connect people with nature and was selected by Wolpert as the second recipient because of their commitment to engender responsible stewardship in our area.

“Memory  Image  Reality” continues in the back room of the Hope Arts Gallery until Sept. 28.
