A new art show at White Rock Community Centre will feature the work of White Rock-born-and-raised painter and multi-media artist Jamie Smith.

Entitled Confessions, the exhibit will be launched with a public opening reception Thursday, July 24 at 7 p.m. at the centre.

Smith's works are typically full of layers of colour, text, image and pattern and Confessions is no exception.

Hundreds of anonymous confessions were submitted to the artist for use in the series, and those handwritten words peep through colour fields and geometric shapes to create a unique fusion of text and mood.

Confessions will run at the centre, 15154 Russell Ave., until Aug. 30. For more information on opening hours, call 604-541-2199.
