Thank You for Making Collective Ground a Success

Saturday’s art exhibition, Collective Ground, in Brewery Creek Community Garden was a hit! Despite the scorching heat, there were steady streams of people meandering through the garden to view all the wonderful artwork all day. Thank you, patrons of art! Your interest, support, and kind words mean a lot.

Special thanks to all the artists and performers who helped create such a wonderful vibe in the garden. Collective Ground is a reflection of the talents of participating artists Alicia Marie LawrenceAnna CrowAnne Nicole MeesonChristian CasadeiFred “JOY” JoyalJaymie JohnsonJudith Atkinson, Marnie Hiebert, Miralda Reyes, and Tara Galuska; special collaborative guests Vancouver Pop-Up-Poets Meharoona Ghani, Jennifer Zilm, Matea Kulic, Lindsay Glauser Kwan, and Betsy Chow; and musician Adam Bowen.

And thank you to my co-host Marnie Hiebert; volunteers Kitty Nichols and Mitch Janzen; the Broadway East Art Walk for helping make Saturday a day filled with art and community by hosting their own art walk in conjunction with Collective Ground; the Vancouver Foundation Neighbourhood Small Grant program for the funding; and Brewery Creek Community Garden for being supportive of the arts and opening their gates so artists can share their art with the community.
