Gallery Exhibit

The Arts Council of New Westminster aims to have exhibitions that feature a variety of visual arts by a wide range of artists from the Metro Vancouver region. The exhibition program aims to reflect both the cultural and artistic diversity of contemporary art and serve as an educational forum for New Westminster and surrounding communities. This program is open to applications from both established and emerging artists.

As a general rule, monthly exhibitions open on the first Wednesday of each month and close on the last Sunday of the month. The time between closings and openings is used for exhibition installation and, in some occurrences, for five-day pop-up exhibitions.

“Artist’s Choice”
by Fraser Valley Potters Guild

Exhibition Dates: May 4-29, 2022
Gallery Hours: Wed – Sun, 10 am – 2 pm
Opening Reception: Wednesday, May 4th, 2022, 6-8 pm
Inter/Action Event: “Play with Clay” in the Queens Park Bandshell, Saturday May 21st, from 1 – 4 pm

Free Admission

Exhibition Statement

In the past 2 years with the Covid Pandemic, events have been shrunken, modified and cancelled many times.  It has been difficult to even make art for many artists that rely on group firings and other facilities.  Classes are often on-line and not in person, creating more difficulties to learn and make work. So it is with these things in mind that we have decided to have an “Artist’s Choice” Exhibition, that can include a piece made at any time, rather than just in the last year, which is normally the case for our juried shows.  It should be a piece that speaks to the artist, their favorite piece perhaps, one that they are most proud of, or that was most difficult for them to achieve.  We are asking for their artist statements with their personal reasons for exhibiting this particular piece.  That will be interesting for the public and artists alike.

We hope you enjoy this exhibition.

Artist Biography

The Fraser Valley Potters Guild is a non-profit association which was formed in 1975 by a group of alumni of the Surrey Campus Ceramics Department of Douglas College who wished to continue the camaraderie and opportunities for professional growth and development that had started in classes at the college. Our Guild moved to the present location at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Surrey Campus, in the late 80’s and today we have close to 100 members, from Yarrow to Richmond. Our members include a range of pottery enthusiasts, ceramics and art teachers, professional ceramicists, students, and hobby potters who show their work nationally and internationally and include their work in public art commissions, community projects, and one-person shows.

“STRINGS AND THINGS”
6th Annual Student Art Exhibition by Queen’s Park Parent Participation Preschool Exhibition

Exhibition Dates: April 1-April 18, 2022.
Hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Free Admission.


Exhibition Statement

QPPS students explored a variety of materials individually and collaboratively to create colourful, inviting artwork made out of natural materials, recycled objects and loose parts. We worked with string, rope, wire, yarn, beads, buttons, fabric, paint, paper, and wood to create works of art inspired by nature all around us in our beloved Queens Park! Strings and Things celebrates the combination of colour and texture! We hope our cheerful exhibit brightens your day and encourages you to want to spend more time outdoors and then go home and create something special with found treasures that are gifts from Mother Nature herself!

Since 1965 Queen’s Park Preschool has been a part of the New Westminster community offering a high-quality and nurturing preschool program to families living in New Westminster and its surrounding communities.

“Contention: Male Figures in Wrestling”
by Clayton Stephens

Exhibition Dates: March 2-27, 2022
Gallery Hours: Wed – Sun, 10 am – 2 pm

Free Admission

Exhibition Statement

Recently I overheard some people saying they do art “to relax” and to “calm themselves”.  I looked at them wide eyed, and responded that, quite the opposite, drawing stresses me out.  Capturing the human experience has always been a struggle – a fight between the reference and my hand.  For years I’ve been trying endlessly to ‘pin’ the figure onto the paper in a way that captures the essence and emotion, all the while retaining recognizability.  Each drawing is not me sitting calmly.  It is me vs. a photo and a round in the ring.

In an attempt to try to distance myself from that struggle, I decided to let the figures themselves be the ones struggling.  The wrestlers in each drawing are stills from college wrestling videos.  Each pair are frozen from actions of fighting, arm-twisting, and headlocks.  Both figures are fighting confidently to win against the other.  Each five-minute skirmish is purely masculine and you can see the dedication in each of their eyes to overcome their opponent.   Despite this, the drawings of the stills portray a seeming embrace between the two – much like how love and hate are not so separate from each other during the process of art making, when you take the time to slow everything down.

Although seemingly the purest form of competition, in the end, wrestling seems to be much like drawing – appreciation of beauty by being in direct competition with your reference.  Perhaps the desire to prove yourself against another is its own kind of beauty.

“Looking at Local Nature”
by Eric Hotz

Exhibition Dates: February 2-27, 2022
Gallery Hours: Wed – Sun, 10 am – 2 pm

Free Admission

Exhibition Statement

My artwork is an exploration of local nature, its fauna, geographical features such as its lakes, volleys, and mountains, and the clouds, and skies that hang over them. My artwork focuses on the natural history that is within a 2-hour drive from my home in Maple Ridge, BC, which con include Richmond, Stanley Park all the way up to Manning Park, and everything in between. My goal is to explore my region through my artwork to allow people to feel and see the beauty that is within easy reach of everyone who lives in and around the Greater Vancouver Area.

When I was four-years old, my family moved to North Burnaby, just up the street from the Burnaby Lake Regional Park, a 770-acre urban park. This forested park, and the surrounding areas, become my childhood playground from down to dusk: places to explore, forts to build, and tree houses to construct. It was the perfect environment to nurture both my love of biolo­gy and to inspire my art

Deer Lake is a special place in my heart because I lived near by. I have a lot of history to this area of Burnaby, including Burnaby Lake. It was here, when I was three years old, that my father tested his homemade rowboat, in 1963. There are home movies of my family taking turns rowing out, about, and bock. We have this moment in our home movies, but I can remember that day like it was yesterday. This is one of the reasons I rendered several paintings of Deer Lake Trail. I frequently visit Deer Lake when I am in Burnaby, along with the Burnaby Art Gallery.

My goal with my art is to introduce people to the nature that is literally in their backyards. There is so much beauty within our immediate area and yet, most people do not know this. Take a 2-hour drive and you can be in an alpine paradise above the clouds view a landscape of mountains that seem to go on forever or you can be on an ocean front beach watching the tide go out and clouds rolling in. Our area is so unique that many people from all over the world come to see the Greater Vancouver Area.

I believe in biophilia – an innate tendency to seek connections with nature. I will often go out to explore the many outlying regional parks for their lakes, ponds, streams, forests, meadows, and mountains. There are many beautiful locations close to where I live waiting to be discovered that I can turn into paintings. There are several lifetimes worth of paintings waiting to be discovered and rendered.

Artist Biography
