Art on Demand exhibition at The Reach Gallery Museum

Public opening reception to be held on Saturday, Dec. 5

Julia Soderholm's “Ebbs and Flows” acrylic painting is among the works featured at Art on Demand 1:5 at The Reach.

The Emerge Program for young artists hosts its fifth Art on Demand 1:5 at The Reach Gallery Museum on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 2 p.m.

The public opening reception of this gallery-within-a-gallery exhibition is an afternoon of mingling and an informal discussion with local artists Julia Soderholm and Lindsay Schroeder.

The pair will focus on their work that expresses the human experience through their own unique mark-making techniques.

Mirroring The Reach’s operational structure, the Emerge Art on Demand programs function as a membership-led “gallery within a gallery.”

Along with invitations to submit artwork to an annual exhibition, some of the Fraser Valley’s most promising emerging artists (ages 16 to 30) get to showcase exciting new works curated by its own membership, at Art on Demand exhibitions.

Emerge members also have access to unique programs, workshops and studio/gallery tours.

Admission is free to Art on Demand 1:5 and to the opening reception. The Reach is located at 32388 Veterans Way. For more information, visit thereach.ca.
