In celebration of Port Moody’s Centennial Celebrations and in partnership with the Celebration of Wood Art & Craft Fair on July 20th, the Port Moody Arts Centre Gallery is showcasing fine works of art and design that celebrates wood in its many forms & function.
Situated at the east end of the Burrard Inlet, Port Moody has a rich history in the lumber industry that began in the early part of the 20th century. In celebration of its rich heritage the Port Moody Arts Centre Gallery invited artists and artisans to submit 2D and 3D works that explored the theme of wood and its many uses.
Visitors to the gallery will see how artists have portrayed wood in its many forms, from images of trees in their natural environment to highly refined and crafted pieces made for personal use. Take in the chance to view works using contemporary techniques beside designs celebrating traditional forms.
