If you want to brighten your day, head over to the East Van Tiny Art Gallery in front of 2516 Parker Street, near Kamloops.
As an art space, it might be little tricky to spot. It’s surrounded by greenery and looks like something that should be full of books. But this ain’t no book exchange.
Seanna Mcpherson (at microphone) built the tiny gallery and is its curator. On the first Saturday of the month they arrange for a local artist to exhibit a new work.
The space may be small but the art is thoughtful and Seanna makes sure it gets a proper gallery show opening.
At the opening last Saturday the Beatta choir performed, there was a timely and moving reminder of whose land we are on, a freshly minted poem and a crowd of art lovers.
A wonderful antidote to the general gloom we’ve been experiencing of late.
The next opening should be on New Year’s Day 2022.
Events like these show why this diverse corner of east Vancouver is a special place.
