Upcoming workshops

    • Tuesday, September 26, 2017
    • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
    • Silk Purse Arts Centre
    This workshop is open to everyone and great for all age groups and levels of writers. Take the challenge. Write to a prompt for 10-15 minutes and see what you get. This kind of free flow writing to prompts by-passes the inner critic, removes blocks and inhibitions. With everyone in the same boat, with the same time constraints, it quickly builds trust in groups. Getting stuff out, getting it down on paper and sharing with others - these things are life enhancing, life affirming. A Pandora's Collective event.
    Hosted by poet Fran Bourassa
    Admission $5

    Acrylic painter Peter Manning,
    whose work is on display in the current exhibition Water's Edge: Images and Illusions, shares insights into his inspiration & artistic process! This North Vancouver artist is fascinated by the ever-changing aspects of reflection, light & movement viewable in waterscapes. His experience as a graphic designer & art director have greatly impacted his style & approach to painting, allowing him to interpret the natural beauty of shorelines with a colourful & graphic quality. Join us for an informal & intimate opportunity to meet the artist & ask him about his work. Manning will be in the gallery to celebrate Culture Days, a nation wide event celebrating Art & Culture.
