Chilliwack Society for Community Living presents annual show Open Door

Artists from the Chilliwack Society for Community Living will be showcasing their work during the Open Door exhibition

Artists from the Chilliwack Society for Community Living will once again be showcasing their work at their annual Open Door exhibition at the Cultural Centre.

Chilliwack Society for Community Living (CSCL) provides individualized support to enhance the lives of adults with developmental disabilities, children and youth with special needs, and their families.

CSCL was given the opportunity to become involved in the local art community four years ago with a one-day art show, after a man who receives support through CSCL walked into the doors of the Art Gallery looking for inspiration.

Little did the society know how far that one step would take and what a wonderful path it would lead.

Now this short but inspiring exhibition, presented by the Chilliwack Visual Artists Association (CVAA), has blossomed to four days.

With great enthusiasm, a colourful and diverse group of CSCL individuals join art volunteers in their Wednesday afternoon Open Door Art Club. This arts program has ‘opened doors’ for so many in their Community Inclusion Services program as well as individuals in residential programs.

The artwork created by the individuals supported by CSCL will be on display in the annual Open Door exhibit June 21-24.

The CVAA and the Chilliwack Cultural Centre are happy to be able to provide a professional setting in which these talented artists can display their artwork. Each piece reflects the energy, personality and dedication of the individual who created it.

The Open Door runs June 21-24, from 12 to 5 p.m. each day. Opening reception is set for Thursday, June 22 from 6 to 8 p.m.
