New West Craft’s February exhibition at the Gallery at Queen’s Park was such a success that it’s holding another one in March.

Four new artisans will be taking over the Arts Council of New Westminster’s gallery from March 3 to 31.

“The first (New West Craft) exhibition was a true success,” said Laura Grady, program manager for the arts council, in an email. “The community come out ready to support and were excited to participate in a fun and intimate event. We have never seen so many people visiting our space (safely, of course). Visitors came to buy, so the artisans had a profitable experience.”

In celebration of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, the March exhibition will feature four new female artists and artisans: Clarissa Banos, Julia Heinonen of Chroma Nostaa Designs, Valentina Pinzon of IndiArts Collective and Dana Keli Ceramics. Mona Ungar of Glasea, who was part of the February exhibition, will also return for March.

The gallery will be open Wednesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Admission is free, and the gallery has COVID-19 safety protocols (including contact tracing measures) in place.

The gallery is in Centennial Lodge, Queen’s Park.
