Artwork by 20 young artists

Students showcase art

Crescent Beach event features work of new Canadians

The work of 20 young artists between the ages of six and 18 will be showcased this Saturday (Nov. 19) in the New Life Kids Art Show, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Beecher Place (12160 Beecher St., Crescent Beach).

All new residents of Canada from China and Taiwan, they’re students of South Surrey’s Dehai Wang, an established art professional, whose paintings are in private collections throughout the U.S., Australia, Japan and Europe.

Emphasizing technique from drawing skills to mastery of oil painting, Wang encourages his students to paint local scenes and the upcoming exhibit will show their surprisingly mature views of such well-known landmarks as the White Rock pier, Southmere Park, the White Rock Museum and Archives’ station building and Crescent Beach.

The show is supported by Alexandra Neighbourhood House and is being presented with assistance from the Neighbourhood Small Grant Project, an initiative of the Beacon Fund managed by the Vancouver Foundation.

The artists will be present to discuss their work and refreshments will be served.
