Happy to Meet You

Colette Lisoway, Happy to Meet You (detail)
Creative and inspirational printmaker, Colette Lisoway's six-pannel print  installation says it all on opening day: Happy to Meet You. Her screenprints interweave her connections in the community and that of shared stories, camera-captured observances and chance encounters. The pannels buzz with activity and urban commerce, all connected together in a heartfelt welcome to all.

In her own words, Colette Lisoway says: The people and places I have yet to discover have always been my greatest fascination. Throughout life and wherever I am in the world, I have always been compelled to create connections with people in the communities in which I find myself. I am constantly awed and inspired by the generosity of strangers and their willingness to share their lives and their stories with me. These relationships continue to fuel and inform my personal narrative; the basis of my current work. Contained within layers of ink and images, Happy to Meet You, is the entwining of shared stories, camera captured observances and chance encounters in Vancouver’s Chinatown.

The Best B4 Collective are happy to meet the public at our opening Saturday, 07 November (2-4 pm) in the On-Tak Exhibition Hall at the Chinese Cultural Centre (555 Columbia Street at Keefer). Check out the Best B4 Collective Events Page for more community events throughout November and December.
