sport re-imagined

So many of you may have heard of this little thing called the Winter Olympic Games that are coming to Vancouver? Lot's of exciting events are happening around town, both official and non.official... so I thought I would share an art exhibition that my hubby Roger is participating in.

With over ten other artists, he will be showcasing some of his work at "Sport Re-Imagined" at the Leigh Square Community Arts Village in Port Coquitlam from January 21 - March 21. I will post some pics of his work when we snap some at the opening night in February... these are some pieces by some of the other artists that will be in the show. Hope you can check out the show!

A description of the show: "Sport Re-imagined is a group exhibition showcasing artists whose work challenges, re-imagines, and reinterprets sport and the paraphernalia and constructs that surround it. Artists ask the viewer to envision familiar objects with a new perspective: robots made of bicycle parts, skis transformed into furniture, tents and rugby shirts altered into couture dresses or skateboard decks that look like abstract paintings. Other works emphasize the physical and bodily exertion of sport; the potential energy in our bones and muscles."

January 21 - March 21
Opening Reception: Tuesday, February 16 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Leigh Square Community Arts Village, 2253 Leigh Square, Port Coquitlam
FREE ADMISSION.

ps. don't forget to enter the January giveaway... last day to enter is Sunday!
