New exhibit showcases Artists At Work members

An artists reception at Hope Arts Gallery takes place March 31

Members from Artists At Work will be featured in a new exhibition in April at Hope Arts Gallery called Creative Endeavors.

Hope Arts Gallery presents Creative Endeavors next month, a new exhibition featuring members from Artists At Work.

Most group members paint, but the Hope & District Arts Council drop-in program is open to any artistic style.

Fees collected are used to bring in workshop facilitators or take the Art Bus to various out-of-town venues.

On April 21, some of the members will be travelling to VanDusen Gardens to participate in the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival and take part in a painting workshop with Fort Langley artist Alan Wylie.

The new exhibit runs April 1-28 in the backroom gallery.

An artists reception takes place this Saturday (March 31) from 2-4 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.

The Hope Arts Gallery is located at 349 Fort St.

For more information, contact Sharon Blythe or Diane Ferguson at 604-869-3400.
