Opening Reception at the Port Moody Arts Centre

Scottish-born Jeff Wilson opened a new exhibition on Thursday at the Port Moody Arts Centre, with acrylic paintings showcasing Vancouver’s mid-century neon lights. The viewpoints, from which he approaches these signs, coupled with the use of very flashy color, made me very curious. So, I went to the opening reception.

Pleasantly surprised by the dynamic composition of his work, I was though not impressed by the recurring orange and blue paint chosen for all his pieces. 

Reminisce the history of Vancouver marks in the unique heritage building that was once Port Moody City Hall was a great way to end my working week. I have very much enjoyed the cozy atmosphere at the Port Moody Arts Centre – a center that provides more than 300 arts programs and music lessons annually.
