It’s gearing up to be an exciting weekend at the Arts Centre! This photo by @tricitynewsbc captures the cross-pollination of this weekend’s happenings perfectly: Board member Cathy Cena stands in front of a suite of vibrant, richly-detailed paintings by local artist @deannafligg, holding a can of @parksidebrewery beer.
Deanna Fligg’s “Nectar,” on display in our Suncor Gallery, beautifully portrays the lives of pollinators in bold colours and stylized compositions, raising awareness of the importance of bees in our ecosystem and the threats to survival they currently face.
Deanna’s paintings—together with our other exhibitions on view—set the backdrop for our Poetry Slam & Craft Beer night on Saturday, April 21. Held in our galleries, this one-night event features slam poetry performances and local craft beer in celebration of the Arts Centre’s 20th anniversary.
Tickets will NOT be available for purchase at the door, so make sure you snag yours online before the start of the event tomorrow at 7pm! Visit pomoarts.ca or the find the link in our profile.
