Place Des Arts with Two Open Houses

Most of us haven’t made a lot of art since we were kids, perhaps it’s time for that to change. This Thursday, September 9th, Place des Arts will hold their inaugural adults-only open house and gala exhibition reception, Ignite … an affair with art.

Ignite is a free event, sponsored by Rigamarole Winery, the Tri-City News, and us! It’s an elegant evening out for adults to explore the world of art.

The public is invited to enjoy a complimentary glass of wine, listen to music performed by a top piano student, and view exhibitions by artists Cam MacDonald, Dawn Emerson, and Place des Arts teachers and staff.

You’ll also get the chance to put down your glass of wine and try a variety of visual arts techniques. Fiber arts, drawing, painting, mixed-media, ceramics, photography and jewelry making will all be demonstrated. If you find your inner artist ready to burst forth, attendees who register for an adult class during the event receive $10 off the registration fee.

Top notch door prizes include six pairs of tickets to Vancouver Opera’s production of Lillian Alling and a pair of tickets to Place des Arts 2010-11 Faculty Concert season.

We’re actually quite lucky here in the Tricites to have Place des Arts right here in our own backyard. Their well-equipped studios are home to many incredibly skilled teachers, who can help you find that artist inside of you that may have been missing for a few years. If music is your thing, there are lessons for every age and skill level.
