Promote the fine arts

Editor:

It just occurred to me that in the last week’s Peace Arch News editions, there was not a mention of Bing Thom’s fabulous new library in Surrey City Centre, where I visited the opening the previous Saturday.

Shame on PAN.

In the 10 years we’ve lived in Surrey, I’ve never met a highly educated female visual artist sculptress/painter like me in Surrey.

Perhaps a photo of a fabulous new building in Surrey, in PAN, would inspire future female sculptresses like me – instead of the disgusting covers of the overweight child beauty-pageant competitors…

Promote the bloody fine arts.

Elena Margaret Williams, Surrey

Editor’s note: We wrote Aug. 18 about Thom’s design and published a photo Tuesday of the opening. For today’s arts features, see page A37.
