Arts Events:

Hyland Sheung Art Exhibit
Thompson Community Centre
5151 Granville Avenue
Collections of paintings. Artist statement: Through my trips around the world and many local hikes, I always found mountains especially inspirational. No two mountains are the same and all are majestic wonders. From Mt. Cypress to Mt. Alps in France, Mt. Fjords in New Zealand, Mt. Hwa Shan and Kun Lun Range in China, I capture the mood of the landscape through my use of colour. This exhibition is a sample of the mountains I have come across through my many years of traveling and hiking.

Unlocking The Code – Retrospective Exhibition of Joseph Synn Kune Loh
Vancouver Lipont Art Centre
4211 No. 3 Road
Open daily, 9am-5pm. Free admission.
Loh is a visual artist, a published poet, a design consultant, and international speaker on the evolution of consciousness. His career spans from the 70’s to present and from Hong Kong, China, USA and to Canada. Among the one hundred artworks in the exhibition, many early works were never seen by Canadian audiences. This body of relatively unknown and under-represented work all converges at the retrospective exhibition that catalyst new conversations on “art in Vancouver”. An artist’s life-long fascination with the ancient mystery school of China is documented by Joseph Loh’s series of paintings done over forty years, beginning with abstract landscapes in the late 1970s, to introspective drawings in the 1980s, to a spiritual transformation series titled “Plato’s Cave” in the 1990s, to galactic and Buddha forms in the millennium, and to molecular language – his most recent creative expression. Loh’s vast visual horizon leads you to stand where the known meets the unknown, and to realize what had been buried in our tribal instincts are images of recognizable importance to our personal and cultural lives.

Jana Seale
Britannia Shipyards – Chinese Bunkhouse
5180 Westwater Drive
7:30pm
Mesmerizing audiences from all over the world with her unique and gentle style, West Coast acoustic guitarist/vocalist Jana Seale was a featured guest artist on luxury cruise lines from 2006-2014. Jana’s warm, dynamic delivery returns to the roots of the solo performer, reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez and the coffeehouses of times gone by… Now back on shore, she reinterprets folk, country and singer/songwriter favorites covering decades from the 60’s to modern times. Inspired by open tuning troubadour Nanci Griffith, and Eva Cassidy’s simply elegant guitar arrangements, Jana performs with warm, understated finger style guitar. But it’s her multi-facetted voice that captivates her audience night after night. Jana’s five cds have travelled home with passengers from around the world and several tracks have had airplay on CBC Vancouver, and Edmonton’s CKUA. Her newest album ‘Retrace This Road’ was released in Aug 2017.
Tickets: 10$ at the door.

Salt-Water Moon
Gateway Theatre
6500 Gilbert Road
The glorious production of David French’s Salt-Water Moon was a sold-out hit in Toronto last season. The beloved Canadian classic about love, loss, and reconciliation is daringly re-imagined by visionary director Ravi Jain. With its boldly spare staging, this production asks “Can you ever truly return home?” It’s 1926 and every day the villages of Newfoundland are being abandoned by their young for a new life in the big city; but, eighteen-year-old, Jacob Mercer, has come home to Coley’s Point to win back his former sweetheart, Mary Snow, after abruptly leaving over a year ago. By the light of a moon-filled night, the former lovers meet to confront their past choices and contemplate a possible future together.

ROCA Presents: Rising Stars 2018
Fraserview MB Church
11295 Mellis Drive
7:30pm-9:30pm
Since 2009, the Richmond Orchestra has organised an annual “Rising Stars” concert that invites young local musicians to rehearse and perform with a full orchestra. Rehearsing with an orchestra, learning how to work with a conductor and orchestra musicians, performing for audiences from the community helps a young performer refine techniques, build social relationships within the music community and experience their music as an art rather than just a skill. We are once again proud to feature the winners of the Richmond Music Festival Concerto and Composition Challenges as our 2018 Rising Stars.

Marcia Pitch: About Face
Richmond City Hall – City Hall Galleria
6911 No. 3 Road
Marcia Pitch has been focused on the bizarre and disturbing throughout her artistic practice. About Face explores this fascination through the deconstruction and reconstruction of images. This series brings forth a mixture of feelings deep in the gut: anxiety and repulsion, but also intrigue and delight. Through this lens, the disguise in the quotidian is revealed and acts to push our understanding of how truth and madness exist around us in our everyday lives. (Text by Maeve Hanna)

Ongoing – March 18
Transference
Richmond Art Gallery
7700 Minoru Gate
Transference presents the works of five Canadian artists – Aimée Henny Brown, Saskia Jetten, Ross Kelly, Colin Lyons and Kathleen Ritter. The exhibition investigates digital technology’s influence on contemporary print-making. Each artist engages the challenges and opportunities digital methods present to the function and process of the medium and its contribution to the conceptual construction of artworks. Underlying the works is the notion of image transfer as well as the transference of meaning supported and sometimes led by new digital innovations.

BC Artist Registry
Calling all BC artists! We invite all British Columbian adults who are artists in any discipline to be counted in the BC Artist Registry. Whether your arts practice is your full-time or part-time career, or your avocational pursuit, you may join the Registry through our simple online form.
Across the province, arts champions in municipalities and local agencies express the need to learn more about artists in their communities, but lack the channels to connect with those individuals. The BC Artist Registry becomes an important tool for reaching artists directly, inviting their participation in surveys and other types of consultation.
The BC Artist Registry uses a simple online form recording an artist’s name, contact information, and field(s) of artistic discipline. Joining the Registry is free, and the personal information remains private and confidential. From time to time, artists on the Registry will be invited to participate in more detailed surveys or other consultations. The Registry will be open for ongoing registration with no deadline, to ensure a growing resource for meaningful statistics and research in our province’s cultural sector.
