Artwork from the Chinese Arts Bridge Competition
To Feb 9
Oakridge Centre
650 West 41st Avenue, Vancouver
In August 2014, Katherine and John Chan of the International Arts Gallery launched a call to artists across Canada to submit their work in one of three categories: Western Painting, Chinese Painting or Calligraphy. The Arts Bridge Competition is the one of the first large-scale Chinese arts competitions that specifically features Canadian artists. This endeavour connects Western and Chinese cultures through art and showcases both established and emerging artists in our community. Supported by the federal government, the Arts Bridge Competition encourages artists to appreciate and learn from the style and distinct forms of paintings from another culture. Oakridge Centre is proud to support this cross-cultural initiative and to showcase these inspiring displays of art in our community. We welcome you to view these breathtaking pieces, including the winning art in each category, in the West Galleria from January 28 - February 9. For more information, please visit www.oakridgecentre.com or call our Concierge Desk at 604.261.2511.
