The ACT Art Gallery features the work of amateur, emerging and mid-career artists. Exhibitions are selected with a view to providing a balanced program of local, regional and occasionally, international artists, so that the community benefits through the exposure of artwork created both within and outside the community.
Wood + Wood Fired
April 29 – June 10, 2017
This exhibition features only wood: from streamlined and functional items of utility, to fine art pieces that have no other purpose than to delight. Carved wood, turned wood, handcrafted furniture, jewelry, sculpture, and some whacky musical instruments have been submitted from artists across the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley. A collection of recent wood-fired ceramics by Maple Ridge potter, Mark Tigges, shows how wood can take on a new life and purpose even as it is committed to the flames.

Passagio Exhibit – Dancers
By The Garibaldi Art Club
The show continues until May 29
My dancers move in a world of strong and saturated colors.
Their relation with their environment is direct and without detours.
They tell us stories which will never end and which will awaken our senses.
A sample from the show:
Acrylic on canvas
The Passagio Gallery is located at The ACT Arts Centre on the upper floor. It is open to the public during regular building hours and free to access.
