exhibition invitation


You are invited to come to the opening of my exhibition! I'd love to meet you local bloggers and readers!

Silent Messengers: mixed media prints
Opening: November 16th, 4:30 - 8:00p.m.

Studio Art Gallery, Capilano College**
2055 Purcell Way, North Vancouver

The exhibition is on from November 16th to December 7th, 2004.
Gallery hours: 10am - 4pm Monday - Friday
(or by appointment - email me)

Note: If you need directions to the Studio Art Building, please email me and I can send you a PDF map. It's a 1.5 MB file, too big to upload here, and you probably need a fast connection to receive it. OR if you send me your address, I will mail you the card which has a map on the back.

I'll keep reposting this so that it stays on the main page.

Addendum: To find your way to the North Vancouver Capilano College** campus, check out Google maps. Thanks for the tip, J!

Oh, yes, I really wish I could be there. It wouldn't be crazy to drive halfway across the continent to see those Silent Messengers, would it?? Oh, maybe it would... Good luck!

Tom, I think you should come! It will be worth it, I guarantee it.

As I hope you know, we'd love to be there!

I'd love to be there too! It's been a long time since I've seen your work in a gallery setting. Your series are like a piece of music in theme and variations. You can appreciate each variation individually, but it's the conversation created by the different expressions of the theme from one work to the next as a whole that are really exciting. The invitation looks fabulous, by the way. With another family member on the way, a visit to Vancouver this month is definitely in the cards, so if not on opening night, then soon after! Good luck getting all the preparations done by the weekend. See you soon.

Beth, I'd love it if you could both be here, but :-(

Anita, Thanks so much for visiting and for such beautiful words - they mean a lot to me! See you soon, I hope!

Good Luck Marja-Leena. I would be absolutely thrilled to attend but could I. I would love it. My mind would light with visual excitement at the encounter of your color, shape , texture, meaning. I know it would be a satisfying, stimulating experience. All the best and I shake your hand smilingly!


Bill, thank you VERY much for your kind words and wishes, which I will carry with me, along with everyone's to the big night!

I will be documenting the show and posting here, though photos won't do justice to the real thing.
