The Red Show Nanaimo

Nanaimo Art GalleryThe Nanaimo Art Gallery Downtown, 150 Commercial Street, is hosting The Red Show from February 1 to February 29, 2008. This celebration of the colour red will feature the work of Vancouver Island artists in painting, photography, sculpture, and printmaking as they interpret red, redder, and reddest in a variety of media and forms.

The opening reception for The Red Show will be on Thursday, February 7, from 7 pm to 9 pm. A special event at the opening will be the creation of a large painting, A Dollar-a-Dip, which will allow show visitors to add their dabs of paint to a red community canvas to be auctioned off at the end of March. Brushes and acrylic paint will be provided at $1 a brush-load. A silent auction of items donated by local merchants and community members will also take place at the opening.

The Nanaimo Art Gallery Downtown will be "seeing red" throughout the month of February, and you’re welcome to visit from 10 am to 5 pm Tuesday to Saturday. For more information, call (250) 754-1750.
