Three new exhibits open at Place des Arts (1120 Brunette Ave., Coquitlam) today: Emerging Talent 24 (Grade 12 students in SD43); Dames - Women With Stories (Raeanne Schachter); and Modern Fine Art Photography from the Female Gaze (Lillian Liu).

Coquitlam’s Stage 43 ends its run of the fast-paced play The 39 Steps tonight at the Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam). Directed by Wayne Nolan, the show — a nod to the theatrical society’s 39th year — stars four actors portraying 150 characters. The show starts at 8 p.m.




The Coquitlam Express has back-to-back games at The Palace this weekend. See the players take on the Chilliwack Chiefs at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex (633 Poirier St., Coquitlam). The puck drops at 7 p.m. for the Friday and Saturday events.




Saturday, Jan. 22


The Coquitlam-based ScotFestBC returns with a virtual Robbie Burns Night tribute in partnership with SFU’s Centre for Scottish Studies. Hear SFU Pipe Band pipe sergeant — and world champion piper — Dr. Jack Lee perform and learn some history about Scotland’s Bard from Dr. Leith Davis of SFU. As well, the Blackthorn Blossoms (aka Maillardville native Michael Viens and Rosie Carver, Place des Arts’ fiddling instructor) will also play some Celtic tunes.




Sunday, Jan. 23


Folk singer–songwriter John McLachlan of Hornby Island is back at the Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way) with a tribute show honouring the Canadian legend Gordon Lightfoot. His gig, called Early Morning Rain: the songs of Gordon Lightfoot, includes musicians Marc Atkinson and Scott White.
