The 11th Annual Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show

Exhibition runs until October 28th, 2018

Until October 28th, 2018, Oppenheimer Park and Gallery Gachet are pleased to present what these trees have seen, an exhibition showcasing artwork from the Oppenheimer Park community. Included are paintings, drawings, print, sculpture, carvings and mixed media works. 

Oppenheimer Park is the site of Legacy Sakura trees planted in 1977 by a group of over 70 first generation seniors as part of a project coordinated by the Tonari Gumi (Japanese Community Volunteers Association). This year’s exhibition considers the wisdom and beauty of these historic trees and will delve into the themes of nature, time and place generated through community meetings and a vote in June 2018. Thirty-five artists’ diverse interpretations will be featured in the show.

Expressive Arts | Mondays, 1 - 3 pm

The Expressive Arts Group began as a program through the West Coast Mental Health Network. There are about 30 participants, who meet on a drop-in basis every Monday afternoon to paint, make collages, use mark-making tools,
do print-making and/or sculpture. No previous art experience is necessary
to participate in the group. We operate on the belief that engaging in creative activities is physically and emotionally healing. We provide art materials, instruction (if needed and desired) and support in an inclusive, accessible
and safe atmosphere. Free.

If you are interested in attending, please call 604-687-2468
