Description:

2017 Fraser Valley Biennale Opens at The O’Connor Group Art Gallery On April 6, to May 13th. The Chilliwack Visual Artist Association is pleased to open an exciting group exhibition at The O’Connor Group Art Gallery in the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 9201 Corbould St, Chilliwack. (Opening hours from 12 noon until 5 pm, Wednesday through Saturday). We were very honoured to be invited to become one of the host art galleries for the Biennale for the first time since its inauguration in 2011. The 2017 Fraser Valley Biennale is an impressive survey of some of the most exceptional works of art produced by artists in the Fraser Valley region over the past two years. It began in 2011 as a partnership between The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford and arts councils from around the region. The Biennale celebrates the artistic accomplishments of the region, expands the public’s knowledge of the artists working locally, and nurtures the growth of the artist community in the Fraser Valley. Come out and join the Chilliwack Visual Artists Association as they open another extraordinary exhibition at the O’Connor Group Art Gallery. The Opening Reception takes place at 1 to 3 pm on Saturday, 8th April and members of the public are welcome to join in the celebration of the artists presented in this noteworthy exhibition. The following artists have been chosen to represent the Biennale in Chilliwack. Those with stars against their names are members of the CVAA O’Connor Group Art Gallery artists: Donna Auxier, Simon Chornick, Amy Dyck, Chris Friesen, Paula Funk, Erica Grimm, Fiona Howarth, Sharon Huget, *Krista Kilvert, *Dan Lefebvre, *Sylvie-Rousel-Janssens, *Tracie Stewart, *Kat Wahamma, Sandra Wiens.
