Treasures the latest show at Abbotsford’s Kariton Gallery

The exhibit features works by members of the Fraser Valley Watercolour Society and offers a wide range of styles.

The Abbotsford Arts Council will present a new show at the Kariton Art Gallery called Treasures.

The exhibit features works by members of the  Fraser Valley Watercolour Society and offers a wide range of traditional watercolour paintings as well as experimental paintings done in mixed media.

Non-perishable food donations for the Abbotsford Food Bank will be accepted at the Kariton Art Gallery throughout the exhibition.

Started in 1989, the Fraser Valley Watercolour Society has become an integral part of the Abbotsford community. The society now has a membership of approximately 45 artists.

Society members share a love of the arts and offer mutual support and encouragement as they paint and enjoy art together. Offering a wide variety of styles and subject matter, the members of the FVWS regularly display original art works. Many of the members’ paintings are inspired by local scenery, and local interest in the artwork of the society has heightened the enthusiasm and enhanced the creativity of its members.

Treasures will run from Sept. 20 to Oct. 22 at the Kariton Art Gallery, located in Mill Lake Park at 2387 Ware St.

The gallery’s hours are Tuesday to Friday from noon to 5 p.m., and Saturday to Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The artists will be present at an opening reception on Sunday, Sept. 22, from 1-4 p.m. For additional information, please contact the Abbotsford Arts Council at 604-852-9358, by email at abbotsfordartscouncil@gmail.com, or visit abbotsfordartscouncil.org
