Fifteen local artists will be showcased at the Kariton Art Gallery from July 26 to Aug. 20, as part of the second Fraser Valley Regional Biennale.
The biennale is a collective art exhibition that celebrates and explores local and regional visual art-making.
The project was created in 2011 through a partnership between The Reach Gallery Museum, Abbotsford Arts Council, Mission Arts Council, Maple Ridge Art Gallery and the Langley Arts Council to present a range of artwork created by emerging and professional artists.
The show will run from July 26 to August 20 at the Kariton Art Gallery, located in Mill Lake Park at 2387 Ware St. in Abbotsford.
The artists will be present at an opening reception on Sunday, July 28, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. For more, contact the arts council at 604-852-9358 or abbotsfordartscouncil.org.
