A Lions Bay artist who works in the film industry as a costume cutter returns to the Tri-Cities this month with a new abstract show.
Druh Ireland’s latest collection, which opens in Leigh Square Community Arts Village in Port Coquitlam next Thursday, is titled Use Your Words — a rough take to remind people to use language rather than raw emotions to communicate.
Ireland’s oil paintings are considered statement pieces, offering glimpses and semi-conscious thoughts through clues and symbols.
A member of the North Shore Community Arts Council, Ireland last had a solo exhibit in the Tri-Cities at Place des Arts. Her 2014 show in Coquitlam was titled You Are Here.
• The opening reception for Use Your Words is April 7 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Michael Wright Art Gallery in the Gathering Place (beside PoCo city hall). Admission is free and snacks will be served. The exhibit runs until April 27.
