EEEKArt In The ‘Hood: WE Arts Announces its First Pop-UP Gallery Opening and Exhibit

Pop-UP Gallery and show featuring the spectacular work of local artists including Judith Meyers,

The Pop-Up gallery is an innovative concept utilizing vacant retail space for local art exhibits. It is a collaboration between WE Arts and the West End BIA, and generously sponsored by the Times Square Suites Hotel.
This free public event will be held at a temporary gallery space located at 779 Denman street, on the Northwest corner of Denman and Robson Street. Entertainment will be provided by jazz and rock duo Suede Dogs. Wine and appetizers will also be served.
Opening Reception: Friday, August 22 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm.
Location: 779 Denman Street (NW corner of Denman & Robson Street).
Following the reception, the gallery will be open to the general public on Saturday, August 23 and
Sunday, August 24. Doors will also be open the following week on August 29 and 30.

Most recently, WE Arts was responsible for commissioning the spectacular mural “What A Ride” by local artist Steve ‘the Creative Individual’ Hornung in honour of King George Secondary School’s 100th anniversary and the birth of WE Arts. Two additional murals are expected in 2014 along with further Pop-Up Gallery events and local artist markets. WE Arts will also be conducting a formal Strategic Art Plan in September 2014.
