Arts in brief

Calling Young Artists

Artists aged 16 or younger are invited to participate in a group show at their local Opus store.

During the month of July, exhibitors age 16 or younger can pick up a 10 x10 Opus art board for a minimum donation of $1, and use it to create their piece. All proceeds go toward purchasing art supplies for the BC’s Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Subject, style and medium is up to the artist.

They are encouraged to explore their creativity and have fun. Completed works must be submitted to the local Opus by Wednesday July 31.

In Langley, Opus is located in the Langley Mall, 95-5501 204 St.
