It was a good turnout for the opening reception of One Foot by One Foot, the inaugural Christmas fundraiser put on by the Chilliwack Visual Artists Association benefiting two local charities Saturday at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.
The show featured dozens of one-foot-square pieces of art, all with a price tag of $90 each. The money raised goes to Chilliwack Community Services and Communitas Supportive Care Society in Abbotsford.
The show was hung beside Communitas’ own art show Hear and See: Poetry and Art for Mental Health.
One Foot by One Foot by the CVAA and Hear and See: Poetry and Art for Mental Health by Communitas runs Dec. 13 to Jan 19 at the O’Connor Group Art Gallery in the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Gallery hours are Wednesdays to Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
