Description:

Coming to the O’Connor Group Art Gallery at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre from July 4 - August 3 is The Way We See It exhibit, featuring Chilliwack artists: Zidonja Ganert, Greg Laxton-Ekberg and Vickie Legere. As artists, we see the world through the eyes of wonder. Our choice of visual mediums is vastly different. Zidonja primarily paints in a nostalgic style, Greg paints with a whimsical, ‘posterized’ style and Vickie photographs both the marvelous and the mundane. We create art to say ‘something’ about what we feel about the subject – not just to make a pretty picture. Opening reception is July 6, 1-3pm. Everyone welcome. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Saturday from noon to 5 pm. Gallery may be open for 1 hour before most shows in the Cultural Centre. Admission is free.
