Upscale Art, O’Connor Group Art Gallery’s upcoming exhibit, is the outcome of an exciting proposition to the members of the Chilliwack Visual Artists’ Association. The Theme Challenge was to take something that might be discarded, or found at a garage sale, thrift store or recycle outlet and use the items to create interesting, high-quality art. You will see, for example, two unique items (photos attached) by Christine Newsome. The first is an upcycled metal tray with mixed media art called the Florentine Woman. In the second piece, In Sage’s Garden, Christine has converted an old letterpress tray into classy art by using assemblage and collage techniques. Christine is just one of over fifty members contributing to Upscale Art.
Gallery hours: Wednesday to Saturday from 12-5 pm.
Opening Reception: November 23 from 1-3 pm.
Many of the artists will be present to talk with you about their unique creations.
