I read recently that gallery openings are now the new nightclubs: you get the typical crowds and music, with the added bonuses being that the openings are usually free and often offer food. Who could ask for more?
On Friday, June 10 (7-10 pm) the grand opening of the JEM (just east of main) gallery is taking place with a showing of Andrew Milne's 'through a glass darkly', a performance and mixed media show. The performance itself is at 8 pm. They are also holding an artist talk on Saturday, June 18 at 2 pm. The exhibit runs until Sunday, July 3. The gallery is at 225 East Broadway, Vancouver, or look them up at http://www.jemgallery.com.
