Tree Takes a Parting Bow

It is tempting to muse on the metaphor of a parting bough, but likely the reader wants some quick information about Tree Literal and Figurative at the Chinese Cultural Centre Museum (Columbia and Pender) closing on Saturday, 05 April. The last day to see Connie Sabo's installation, Information and Impression, will be Saturday, 29 April; not to be missed.

During the exhibition, The Tree branched out to students from Britania Secondary and Lord Strathcona Elementary Schools who visited the On-Tak Gallery: tour facilitated by Pauline Doyle and art workshops with Phyllis Schwartz and Alison Keenan. Photography students from Britiannia spent two days in the classroom making Lumen prints. Students from Lord Strathcona Elementary spent three days drawing trees using untraditional mark making tools.

In our parting bow, we express our gratitude fir our extended and well received exhibition There are many people to thank: Toni Zhang McAfee, the Gallery Manager at the CCCM, Chu Yin Tak who connected the BestB4 Collective with the CCCM, Bryan Melvin for photodocumentation and many people who visited the exhibition. Copies of the exhibition catalogue are still available at the reception desk for $13, and after the exhibition closes, available from Blurb at a much higher cost.
