A Metro Vancouver group of sacred artists that includes seven Tri-City residents — three of whom work out of Port Moody's Esplanade studios — will open a new show next Friday.
The sixth biennial juried exhibit by the Epiphany Sacred Arts Guild will run from Oct. 14 to 23 at St. Jude's Roman Catholic Church (3078 Renfrew St., Vancouver).
The display, titled The Way of Beauty, will have the work of Christine Lim-Labossiere of Port Moody, Coquitlam residents Patricia Ballard, Ana Maria Silva and Mary Catherine Breslin as well as Port Coquitlam's John Suter, Nerrisa Ng and Frank C. Turner.
As well, there will be a showcase of about 30 historical vestments on loan from a private collection of the Palace of the Popes in Avignon, France.
The opening reception on Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. includes a blessing by Fr. Lawrence Donnelly, pastor of St. Joseph's Parish in Langley.
