Here are some artful activities you can take in over the next seven days in Vancouver… the city is a buzz with all the art openings happening. This post includes twelve events, some serious proof of Vancouver’s thriving arts community. With the exception of the event on April 8th, all of these events are free to attend.
Here are the highlights:
April 3 – SATELLITE GALLERY – CURATOR TOUR & DISCUSSION WITH ARTISTS
On the heels of the April 2 exhibition opening (that was also Capture Photography Festival‘s official 2015 launch), join Curator Christopher Eamon at Satellite Gallery (560 Seymour St) for a curator tour followed by a discussion with some of the participating exhibiting artists. The talk and discussion will run from noon until 1:30pm. About the Exhibition: Images that Speak showcases ten local and international contemporary artists, several of whom will be showing in Vancouver for the first time. This exhibition was jointly commissioned by Capture Photography Festival and Presentation House Gallery in partnership with Satellite Gallery. The exhibit features new works purpose created for the exhibition and demonstrates some innovative strategies and applications in contemporary photography.
