New Chilliwack exhibit opens with reception Saturday

'Newest and Best' is the theme of the first show of the 2015 season bringing together the artwork of 28 artists

‘Newest and Best’ is the theme of the first show of the 2015 season for the members of the Chilliwack Visual Artists’ Association.

The new show runs Jan. 8 to Feb. 14, with an Artists’ reception set for Sat. Jan. 10, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

There will be 57 pieces of artwork to ponder in the show, created by 28 artists.

“This seems very appropriate for the start of a new year, with fresh ideas and fresh enthusiasm for our 2015 season,” said CVAA member Mary Main.

“Perhaps one painter is thinking of spring, with its new growth; another of the colours of nature, possibly in abstract? New beginnings in another artist’s mind, using design, fabric, and texture?

“All of this will make a very interesting first exhibit in 2015.”

Visitor hours will be from noon to 5 Wednesday to Saturday.
