ParkerArtSalon: The Poetry Project
Where: 990 George Street, Vancouver
When: January 7-31, 2021 Thursdays to Sundays, 12:00pm to 5:00pm or by appointment online.
Beedie Luminaries students were invited to participate in the project by submitting a work of poetry, inspired by a selection of art provided by the ParkerArtSalon Artists. The poems are exhibited with the corresponding artwork, making for a stimulating juxtaposition of two completely different creative ventures.
This exhibition of art and poetry is a collaborative project between Beedie Luminaries and ParkerArtSalon, benefiting the BC Women’s Health Foundation.
When you visit, you may notice pink dots throughout the exhibition. These indicate that proceeds of art sales will be shared with BC Women’s Health Foundation. Books with the art and poetry are available as well for $25.
