ART IN THE CITY

The Sixth Annual `Visual Arts Show'

by

LEE A. WOOD

On the evening of May 6, 2011, I attended the gala opening of `ART IN THE CITY' a visual art show and sale.

I had attended the Visual Arts Show several years ago when I went to interview Redsky.

There I met and interviewed Juhli Caldwell.

This year I went with three agendas.

1. - To visit my friends; Mark, and Juhli.

2. - To write an article on the Arts Show itself.

And 3. - To meet and interview, Dave Pasin, the Chairman of the Arts Show.

The Arts Show is held annually in the West End Community Centre, located at 870 Denman St.

Denman St. is approximately the center of the area of Vancouver known as The West End.

Denman St. owes its popularity to the fact that it ends at English Bay and the ever popular English Bay Beach.

The West End Community Centre, which is approximately midway along the length of Denman St., is jointly operated by; the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, and the West End Community Centre Association

    The Visual Art Show is held, each year, during the first weekend of May.

    The Visual Art Show is a venue for local artists to; showcase, and sell, their creations.

    The, well lit, exhibition room has some fifty, well known, artists displaying; drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, and other works of art.

    Each display area consists of; a table, and a piece of fencing, used as a background

    The background, can be used to hang art while the tables can be use to display art that doesn’t hang.

    Some areas are used by one artist who hangs and mounts their creations while other areas are shared by two artists, one using the table while the other utilizes the backdrop.

    Display areas are rented at a price of $73 for a single artist and $93 if two artists wish to share.

    The gala is normally held between 7 and 9 PM on the Friday before the show and the show is generally open to the public from 10 AM to 6 PM, on Saturday and 10 AM to 2 PM on the Sunday.
