“We have a lot of landscapes and florals,” the group’s spokesperson Ae Ran Park, a Coquitlam resident, told The Tri-City News last Friday.

Seven KOVAN members are displaying about 30 pieces in the Leonore Peyton Salon, she said.

But it’s not the only art show opening Friday in the Brunette Avenue venue.

In the Atrium Gallery is Botanical Reflections by the Fibre Art Network (FAN), who will present art techniques from more than 60 members.

A co-operative of Western Canadian fibre artists, FAN has been prolific since 2000 by displaying around Canada, the United States and in New Zealand.


As well, Enda Bardell — a native of Estonia who now calls Vancouver home — has her watercolour series Up There! opening Friday in the Mezzanine Gallery.

A collection that focuses on the shifting colours of the sky, Up There! also highlights how those colours can affect our moods.

“When it is raining, we tend to stay indoors and not venture out,” she stated in a news release. “When the clouds lift and warm sun appears, we are outside and happy.”

The opening receptions for the three shows starts at 7 p.m. Oct. 12 at Place des Arts (1120 Brunette Ave., Coquitlam). Admission is free. The exhibits end Nov. 10.
