Back -- with Exhibit News!

Hello again, SAQA Western Canada members and WC blog readers far and near!  I am delighted to be back editting the SAQA WC blog -- though not in my former capacity as Alberta Co-Rep.  No; that position remains up for grabs -- and Val Wilson will be finishing her tenure in MB/SK very soon so...(hint, hint, hint...)

First, WELCOME aboard to the new SAQA Co-Rep for B.C., Jennie Johnston of Burnaby.  Watch this space for a bit of a profile on Jennie in the near future.

And now...news of a new exhibit!





archiTEXTURE: Hard Edges in a Soft Medium opens August 7, 2017 in the Community Art Space on the 3rd Floor of the Anvil Centre, 777 Columbia Street, New Westminster, B.C., and runs through October 2, 2017.  Regular gallery hours are Monday - Sunday, 10:00 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Thursday, 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.

The Opening Reception is Friday, August 11 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m., in conjunction with the New West Cultural Crawl that runs over that weekend.

Featured Artists: 


Terry, Mardell and Judy are all SAQA members -- those at the first WC Regional Retreat in May will remember Judy's in-depth, informative and fun seminar on colour.  Among other accomplishments, Terry and Mardell both have pieces currently touring with My Corner of the World: Canada.

The title is intriguing...the artists are talented...if you live in or will be visiting the area in August or September, be sure to take in "archiTEXTURE"!

A closing note:  if you have news -- your work, an upcoming exhibit, an award for work or and entry accepted into a show, for example --  to share with your colleagues in the Region, across Canada and around the world, please contact your co-rep or contact me directly, and I'll be happy to post it here! -- Margaret Blank, Mirror, AB - Editor, SAQA WC Blog.
