LIGHT” The theme of the next CVAA group show, is ‘LIGHT”. It is an exciting choice to make for many of us, to show light in whatever our medium is. Moonlight, Sunlight, Starlight, Reflections of light, Moving out of darkness to light, Lightning strikes, Northern Lights, ? Abstract, realism, mixed media, collage, fabric art, wood, stone, marble, alabaster, glass, clay, watercolours, oils, acrylics, the choice is bewildering, so, the answer is, we ourselves don’t know! We can’t tell you how each artist will choose to portray light as he or she sees it. That is why we are inviting you to come to the O’Connor Group Art Gallery in the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 9201 Corbould Street and see for yourselves when the exhibit is actually on the walls.
