You can enjoy work by some of New Westminster’s youngest artists in an upcoming exhibition at the Gallery at Queen’s Park.
Queen’s Park Parent Participation Preschool is hosting an exhibition, Lines and Dots, at the Arts Council of New Westminster’s gallery. It will run at the gallery from April 1 to April 11.
A press release notes that Lines and Dots includes both individual and group work. The artists are three-, four- and five-year-old students from the preschool. All of the art was inspired in part by the books The Dot, written by Peter Reynolds, Lines That Wiggle, by Candace Whitman and Along A Long Road, by Frank Viva.
Their work explores a variety of mediums, including watercolour, oil pastel, tempera paint, acrylic paint, wood and wire, with a variety of abstract paintings, drawings and sculptures.
Queen’s Park Preschool has been operating in New Westminster since 1965. The annual art show has become a tradition over the past several years, giving families and the wider community a chance to enjoy the art in the gallery just upstairs from the preschool.
