Beckoned by the Light

Linda Frimer

OPENING RECEPTION and ARTIST’S TALK
in conjunction with the Cherie Smith JCC Jewish Book Festival
Th Jan 30, 7:00pm
Free admission
Exhibit continues until Feb 23.

From the time I was a young child living in the wilderness town of Wells, BC, I have followed the light in creation and sought to immerse myself within it. I sought light in the forest behind our home, where it filtered like inspiration between thick trunks and feathery branches. Inside our home, I overheard stories where the darkness of prejudice and war sought to overcome the light of my cultural family and so, the light of all humanity. I grew to understand that nature and culture rise inseparable in creation, and I devote my art to ennobling the sacred light within them both, as this light beckons me every day.

Linda’s memoir DOT is the art story of her life, still in the process of being prepared for publication. She will read from the manuscript and showcase some of the publisher’s design elements.

Serenity Themed Photo Club Vancouver Exhibition

Opening Reception Th Apr 2, 7:00 – 9:00pm
Artists in attendance | Free admission. Exhibit continues to April 25.

Serenity is a blessing that is often fleeting in our busy lives. In this exhibition, members of PhotoClub Vancouver present their visions of encounters with serenity. While many of the photographs chosen by a jury for this exhibition involve nature and / or landscapes, the selected set includes images from several other genres including portrait, still life, street, abstract and travel. Viewers will have an opportunity to reflect on what is expressed in a collection of well-crafted images that illustrate a diversity of visions and in some cases push the boundaries of the medium.
