The Gallery at Queen’s Park is inviting art lovers in to check out a new exhibition in May.

Of the Earth, featuring work by Victoria Mitchell, runs at the gallery from May 5 to 30.

An Arts Council of New Westminster press release notes Mitchell has had a lifelong passion for creating visuals from emotions. Her work, both abstract and representational, is inspired by what comes from within, combined with experiences of her natural surroundings – drawing inspiration from the B.C. West Coast and Interior, along with extensive travels.

The gallery is in Centennial Lodge. It’s open Wednesdays through Sundays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pre-booking is not required, but there’s a limit of four guests at a time in the gallery, and contact tracing protocols are in place.

While at the gallery, guests can also check out a greeting card fundraiser that’s being offered by the arts council and the Garden Gals art group. For $25, you can buy a set of 10 greeting cards based on the Garden Gals’ Expressions of Hope in the Time of COVID mural.

The mural, a work made up of nine separate art pieces created by group members, can also be viewed in person at Royal City Centre in the storefront next to Dollarama. (It's scheduled to stay until May 6.)
