First Solo Exhibit - The Gallery at Queens Park in New Westminster - Opening night Weds October 3rd 6pm to 8pm
Very proud to announce that the first ever solo exhibit of my artwork is being held this October at The Gallery at Queen's Park in New Westminster. It's a collection of reproductions of my hand cut collage pieces, which create new and captivating worlds from seemingly ordinary objects. Showing everything from mermaid grottoes, to cozy winter firesides captured in snow-globes. Each image draws you into a magical realm with tiny details and succulent imagery. The longer you look, the more you discover.
Opening Reception - Wednesday October 3rd from 6pm to 8pm
I'll be in attendance for the opening night, providing snacks and hot drinks, and answering any questions you have about my work. Prints of the artwork will be available, and Christmas cards featuring my snow-globe winter wonderlands. There will also be some mini collages for you to take home as a souvenir! But it's first come first served, so get there early to get your favourite ones!
The Gallery is easy to get to from Downtown Vancouver - catch the Expo Line to Columbia Station, then hop on the 105 bus heading Uptown from Bay 3. Get off at the 6th Ave at 1st Street stop, then walk into the park through the entrance at the corner. You can click here to see the journey on Google Maps.
If you're driving, there is plenty of parking next to the gallery, and just past it along the road. The entrance to the park is at 3rd Ave and First St - make a right at the traffic circle and you'll drive past the softball fields on your right. Head right at the fork in the road just before the gallery, and you'll find the parking lot.
The exhibit runs from October 3rd - 28th, so you have plenty of time to catch it if you can't make the opening night. I'll be at the gallery every weekend from 1pm - 5pm, and on Sunday October 14th I'll be running a collage workshop all day. It's drop-in and create, so anytime you can head on down and have a go at making your own collage creations! It's free to do and you can take your artwork home at the end.
The gallery hours are Wednesday - 1pm - 8pm, Thursday to Sunday - 1pm - 5pm. It's closed Monday and Tuesday. Prints and Christmas cards will be on sale on the weekends, but you can also leave an order form with your details any other day, and I can contact you about any purchases you'd like to make. The art reproductions will also be for sale, frames included.
And you can always come back here to my shop and buy online! I'll be giving out free shipping coupons at the gallery, so if you do drop by remember to grab one -- there's no limit on items, so get those Christmas gifts for loved ones sorted early!
Looking forward to seeing you at the gallery! Any questions, feel free to leave a blog comment, or get in touch via instagram -- @sethmacbethcollage or @sethmacbeth. The Gallery at Queen's Park also has an instagram you can follow @ArtsCouncilNW.
