Poetry of Art opens at Kariton Gallery in Abbotsford

Exhibit features work of Central Fraser Valley Graphic Guild

Abbotsford Arts Council hosts a new exhibit, The Poetry of Art, with an opening reception on Saturday, March 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Kariton Art Gallery (2387 Ware St.).

The exhibit, running until April w17, features the work of the Central Fraser Valley Graphic Guild, a group of local artists.

Each painting comes with a poem that the artist has written to give not only a literary vision to their image but also visual image to their words.

The guild was formed in 1977 by students of the printmaking department of what was then Fraser Valley College.

Through the years, the group has maintained a reputation for quality artwork and has expanded from its printmaking origins to include painting, drawing and three-dimensional work.
