Check out an Exhibition at Place des Arts

Place Des Arts September 2014 Exhibition

It’s no secret that we love Place des Arts in Coquitlam. Their classes are top-notch, their events are lots of fun, and their boutique is one of the best places to gift shop in the Tri-Cities. If you haven’t checked out the art on display, though, you’re really missing out. This arts centre boasts gallery space that you can view for free, featuring art from fabulous artists, many of them local. They have a round of exhibitions running from September 4-October 4, 2014. To get a feel for the art on display, be sure to stop by the opening reception on Thursday, September 4, 2014 at 6:00pm. Who knows? You may just love something enough to make it your own.

Here’s what you’ll see in these exhibitions:

Silence Lifted, by Karen Santos

Karen Santos is a Vancouver-based painter whose work explores the symbiotic relationship between affects and art. Karen’s most recent collection, Silence Lifted, is a reflection on a vow of silence that Karen took in order for her operatic career to progress — a loss of the language that became quintessential to her personal expression.
