Robert Martens

The free Culture, Coffee and Cookies (C3) mornings continue in November at The Reach Gallery Museum, 32388 Veterans Way.

The sessions are at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 18 and 25.

On Nov. 18, docent Morian Perepelitza will lead a Tour of The Radcliffe Line and Other Geographies exhibition by Sarindar Dhaliwal at The Reach.

Toronto-based artist Dhaliwal was born in the Punjab, India, and raised in London, England, before moving to Canada in 1968.

Dhaliwal’s work reflects on the dissonance of the immigrant experience, often addressing her childhood experience and perceptions of Eastern and Western customs.

On Nov. 25, Abbotsford’s Robert Martens who presents Living Art – Poetry Reading. Martens has co-edited and co-written many literary anthologies and local histories.

He writes poetry in an attempt to make sense of a universe in which little things –like community – are beaten down by seemingly unstoppable global forces. His most recent book is called Little Creatures, and his poetry reading will revolve around issues on how art can emerge from a life and give it meaning.
