A solo exhibition featuring the works of Ursula Rettich will be held at the Kariton Art Gallery (2387 Ware St.) from Oct. 17 to Nov. 11 with the opening reception to be held Oct. 19, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Rettich’s exhibit, “Music in My Mind,” portrays abstract imagery of music, through which she “transfers the sounds [she] hears into colours and the movements into brushstrokes.”

Born, raised and educated in Germany, Rettich immigrated to Canada in 1958, first residing in Cassiar, B.C. and later moving to Burnaby in 1963.

She joined the Guild of Fabric Arts in Vancouver in 1979, and since then has participated in dozens of art exhibitions in fabric art and painting.

In 1993, Rettich moved to Kaslo, B.C. where she established a studio called “4711 Art Gallery.”

She moved to Abbotsford in 2008 and established “Ursula’s Fine Art Studio,” which she still operates today. For more information on Rettich, visit
