 Reflections

The annual “Reflections” poster show and sale helps support the development of emerging local artists. The theme of this year’s show, The Body, has been imaginatively interpreted by second year illustration and design students at Capilano University. This spring, Reflections is reborn in its most ambitious iteration yet, exploring a theme that is universal, but still as malleable as we are diverse.

WOMEN ARTISTS OF FIN-DE-SIECLE PARIS

Mondays: April 24, May 1, May 8    7-9 p.m.

With its lively cabarets and cultural life, Paris in the late 19th century witnessed an extraordinary flourishing of the arts. Many women now left the confines of the home to take on new identities as professional artists, and many art schools in Paris, such as the Académie Julian, were expressly set up to train female artists.This series of three lectures will trace the work of some of the leading women artists of this period, notably Rosa Bonheur, Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot and Camille Claudel.

Cost: $15 drop-in per lecture (space permitting).

How does this correlate with our "World on Fire" of fast food, smart phones, instant gratification, endless to-do lists and a rapidly changing physical and socioeconomic environment?
