Visit the Burnaby Art Gallery this Thursday, Apr 28, from 7 –9 pm for the opening reception of Arts Alive. This year is the 40th anniversary of Arts Alive, which is a program that showcases student work in partnership with the Burnaby School District. This year’s theme was “Tapestry of Tales” and the students are sure to impress with their interpretation of the topic. Additionally, this event will be showcasing the work of seven Burnaby Senior Secondary students in the Artist Apprenticeship Program. This program was designed for students interested in a career in fine arts and invites them to create an exhibition of their work. This is the first time these students will present their work in a gallery setting, so be sure to go and support our future Burnaby artists.
