Art fans won't want to miss the diversity of Planes + Characters.

It's an exciting new exhibition of paintings by Chilliwack's Sandra Wiens and Pierre Tremblay, who is originally from Quebec City.

They ended up doing a duo show because they are both enthusiastic teachers at Sardis secondary.

They formed a small group of artists who critique and support each other, and from that grew the idea of doing a joint exhibit.

Expect to see 30 to 35 pieces, mostly abstracts by Wiens and characters in the form of contemporary figurative portraits by Tremblay.

The show Planes + Characters is in the Art Gallery in the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 9201 Corbould Street. Open Wednesdays to Saturdays 12 to 5 p.m., and 6.30 to 7:30 p.m. on theatre evenings.

Pierre Tremblay and Sandra Wiens both enjoy working with the physicality of paint but with different outcomes. Pierre Tremblay has focused on playing with the conventions of portraiture. Playful extremes in both colours and composition play an important role in how his subjects materialize. Wiens has been working on depicting non-specific landscape spaces that explore the notion of both incremental and forceful change.

Artists' Reception is set for Sat. Jan 25, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  in the Art Gallery in the Chilliwack Cultural Centre
