On December 3, Valley Arts Group President Gwen Callahan led a contingent of VAG members on a tour of two galleries in White Rock, BC. The group spent a lovely afternoon viewing wood carvings, fabric art, ceramics and paintings in oils, watercolors, and acrylics by Arnold Mikelson at the Mind and Matter Art Gallery and then visited the festive Christmas Open House at the White Rock Gallery, where many of the exhibiting artists happily shared their ideas and thoughts about producing the art they had on display. Attendees were greeted and welcomed by a formal doorman and enjoyed complimentary wine and fine food bites while perusing the exhibits. The VAG group enjoyed time to discuss all they had seen while savoring dinner in a local restaurant before returning home. Many thanks to Gwen for arranging and facilitating this holiday trip!
