For All is For Yourself

If you haven’t had a chance to see the current Richmond Art Gallery exhibition For All Is For Yourself, you are in for a real treat. The gallery is abuzz with the work of Cameron Cartiere and the chArt collective, and paired with artist jasna guy’s incredible floor-to-ceiling intricate drawings and installations in not by chance alone.

The exhibition will be on display through January 3rd 2016, but the bees won’t stick around forever! In early December, the public will be invited to take some of the laser-cut bees away to plant in their own gardens – creating a swarming effect and promoting new bee-friendly habitats. The remaining bees will re-appear in an exhibition at Kelowna Art Gallery in 2016.
