LIT: 2017 Culture Crawl Preview Exhibit

Saturday, November 4, 2017 - 20:30 to Saturday, December 2, 2017 - 17:00

To celebrate this year's Crawl, the Eastside Culture Crawl Society is mounting a multi-venue salon-style exhibition titled LIT at the Arts Factory, Cultch, Firehall Arts Centre and Alternative Creations Gallery. This exciting event features work from 60 artists who are participants in the 2017 Culture Crawl.  Juried by Paul de Guzman, Eri Ishii and Connie Sabo.

As the image of single light bulb in a room infers, light has long been associated with a source of inspiration for many artists.  Light is a powerful tool to use for personal expression, and the theme provides artists with a springboard for their interpretation of what it means to have light and how it affects their work.

While the works featuring images of light are included, our jury also selected works that broaden and interpret what the title of this show represents to each artist. Works in this broad-reaching exhibition include painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video and other media.

Opening receptions will be held:

► Saturday, November 4 at The Arts Factory (8:30-10pm)
► Wednesday, November 8 at the Firehall Arts Centre (6-8pm)
► Wednesday, November 8 at The Cultch (6-8pm)
► Wednesday, November 8 at Alternative Creations Gallery (6-8pm)
