The Campbell River Art Gallery is celebrating its 20th Anniversary with the opening of a special exhibition, and a festive party, Friday, Jan. 24 at 7 p.m.

Enjoy live music with renowned guitarist Rodrigo, as well as cake, coffee, a cash bar, door prizes and much more. Dress is festive and everyone is welcome.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary milestone, the Gallery’s 20th Anniversary Exhibition will honour the past, present and future by featuring five Vancouver Island artists with work in the gallery’s permanent collection: Campbell River’s Liz Carter and D Ross Fisher, Quadra Island’s Gordon James and Victoria’s Sylvia Bews-Wright and Shawn Shepherd. Each artist will exhibit his or her work from the gallery’s permanent collection, as well as a selection of new pieces. The juxtaposition of work already in the collection with new creations will highlight the richness of the collection and each artist’s stylistic progression. In addition, Campbell River photographer D. Ross Fisher will be inducted into the permanent collection, with the gallery acquiring one of his photographs from the exhibition.

For more information, contact the Campbell River Art Gallery at 250-287-2261 or curator@crartgallery.ca. The exhibition will remain at the Gallery until Feb. 28. Winter hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
