Reach Gallery opens Art on Demand 2.2 exhibit

Reception takes place at Abbotsford site on Thursday, July 21

The work of artist Claire Sarfeld is featured at a new exhibit opening at The Reach Gallery Museum this week. Pictured here is an acrylic painting titled Slick.

The Reach Gallery Museum (32388 Veterans Way) holds an opening reception on Thursday, July 21 for its new exhibit, titled Art on Demand 2.2.

This exhibition series has been running since 2015 and is now entering its second season featuring a diverse range of up-and-coming Fraser Valley artists.

Run by the Emerge (young artist) leadership team, this summer’s exhibition features the works of art by Claire Sarfeld.

Sarfeld is a graduate of OCAD University in Toronto and currently resides and works in the Fraser Valley. Her artistic practice is defined as a mode of visual storytelling.

By visually expressing emotions and responses to her environment, she welcomes the viewer to react accordingly by evoking a sense of belonging through her highly abstract work.

“As a first-time curator, I am very excited to be working and representing works of art by an artist who is addressing a theme that I explore in my own artistic practice,” said Alisha Sandhu, Emerge curator of this exhibition.

Art on Demand is a cafe-style exhibition that features the work of Emerge artists ages 16 to 30.

This initiative gives members of Emerge the opportunity to display their artwork in a professional facility, as well as assist with curating.

Art on Demand 2.2 shows at The Reach until Sept. 11. For more information, visit thereach.ca or call 604-864-8087.
