The Hope Arts Gallery is getting itself into the mood as the calendar gets ready to flip to February, the month of love, with its presentation of You Got to Have H_ART, which is composed of work done by the local group, Artists at Work (AAW).
AAW was formed when nearly a dozen local artists joined forces to paint, share ideas, and encourage each other every Friday at the Grace Baptist Church.
“It’s a place and time where evolving artists bring their own supplies and equipment (and) practise their skills (while learning) from their contemporaries,” wrote the Hope Arts Council in a press release. “There is no instructor, the fees are low, (and) they sponsor the occasional workshop and have an annual exhibit and sale at various locations in the area.”
For February, through the Hope Arts Gallery (349 Fort St.), AAW presents You Got to Have H_ART, which launches the Gallery’s 2019 Backroom Shows series on Friday, Feb. 1, from 7 til 9 p.m. Artists at Work will be in attendance, and light refreshments will be served.
The exhibit, runs until Feb. 28. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sundays, from 10 a.m. til 4 p.m., and is operated by the Hope and District Arts Council.
