What makes our community unique? What kind of country are we creating together today? How is our history relevant and how does it influence us? We will look back to explore where we have come from, and look into the future to chart a path toward who we want to become.

Beyond the Horizon
Richmond Art Gallery
7700 Minoru Gate
Opening Reception: July 8, 2pm-4pm
A unique exhibition showcasing selected landscapes from the Richmond Art Gallery’s Collection and a series of new works developed in response by students from the Richmond Art Gallery’s Youth Mentorship Program. Works from the Collection, including those by Irene Hoffar Reid, William P. Weston, Alan Wood, Toni Onley, Susan Gransby, Leslie Poole and Susan Point, demonstrate how various artists have grappled with the vast scale of the Canadian landscape. Some set out to capture the immensity or emptiness of a view, while others focus instead on the toll humankind wages on the natural landscape. Where once it was popular for the Group of Seven and its contemporaries to show Canada as an empty, wild terrain, it has become increasingly more important for artists to recognize the cost of recent human activity and to acknowledge that the country was far from uninhabited at the time of colonization. In dialogue with the curated selection of collection works, a group of ten local secondary students; Marisse Cheung, Ayal Heinrichs, Anthea Kwong, Megan Lane, Lucy Li, Mickey Morgan, Angel Pan, Atheana Picha, Lily Wang and Mandy Xu present new works.

Sangre Morena
Chinese Bunkhouse, Britannia Shipyard
5180 Westwater Drive
7:30pm
Elsa and Jose’ have been performing together as Sangre Morena since 2007, playing traditional songs ranging from Spanish Flamenco to the romantic ballads of Mexico. With Elsa’s Mexican heritage and their love for virtually all Latin music, they appeal to the Latin community, and to a wider audience who also share the passion and romance of their music. Elsa’s soulful singing and expression, with Jose’s passionate guitar playing, constantly weave to make each song very special. Sangre Morena performs songs that are sung in fiestas throughout Spain, Mexico and the rest of Latin America. When in front of Latin Americans, the songs are familiar to the Latin audiences, who often sing along and even cry, because of the memories that the songs evoke. For non-Latin’s, the infectious rhythms and emotional interpretations cross language barriers, which entertain and delight the listeners. Be prepared to become fully involved and gasping for breath with Elsa and Jose’s thrilling performance.
Tickets: 10$ at the door.

ArtRich 2017
This exhibition, from December 2nd to 31st, is presented by the Richmond Arts Coalition with the generous support of the Richmond Art Gallery, the City of Richmond and Canada 150 funding. It provides an opportunity for emerging and established artists from Richmond and nearby communities to exhibit together.
ArtRich 2017 responds to the past, present and future of this nation by encouraging artists to submit work that reflects upon Canada—pre-contact, now, and towards the future. Artworks submitted should represent the artist’s experiences, ideas or perspectives on the expansive land mass, communities and cultures we now define as Canada. Artists are encouraged in particular to consider: Environment, Diversity, and Reconciliation. Entries should reflect the artist’s relationship to our country in some way.

There are two changes to ArtRich from the 2015 exhibition: digital submissions and cash awards. Thanks to funding from Richmond Canada 150, we are able to offer cash prizes this year. It’s Canada’s 150th, so our prizes reflect that! 1st Prize $150; 2nd Prize $150; 3rd Prize $150.

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.
