Art in the Heart
Downtown Vancouver's Annual Festival of the Arts
We are scheduled to have 17 artists here at the gallery set up outside along our sidewalks and a few inside the courtyard. Artists will be selling their work at special one weekend only festival pricing. Many of our painters will have unframed pieces, or work that they don’t normally show in the gallery, along with framed work. It’s a great time to pick up some wonderful art at a great price! We have a wide variety of mediums that will be on display: Watercolor paintings, oil paintings, pastel paintings, acrylic paintings, gouache paintings, pottery, jewelry, turned wood bowls and recycled glass art to name a few. The event runs from 5-9 pm on First Friday August 5th and from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday August 6th.

Artists scheduled to be here are: Rebecca Anstine, Celeste Bergin, Bud Fields, Marilyn Hocking, Robin Hominiuk, Michael Lindstrom, Ruth Mabrey, Denise McFadden, Juliet Moran, Luba Nenchev, Mike Rangner, Cirith Anderson-Sebree, Jan Taylor-Taskey, Della Terra, Scott Trumbo, Oleg Ulitskiy and Gene Wigglesworth.

Un petit bouquet qui me "ravigote" le regard!... Il a ce petit quelque chose comme un accroche coeur... inutile d'expliquer le pourquoi... parfois ce n'est pas nécessaire... simplement dire j'aime en laissant pétiller les yeux...

Je vous souhaite à tous un immense succès... je penserai bien à vous.

Such a dreamy and romantic piece here, Celeste. Something about those pops of purple...

Wish I could come out for this event but I know you'll have an awesome time!

"From the Garden" is exquisite. Like taking a big hit off a pure oxygen tank!
