Three oil paintings from a Philippine-born artist will be up for sale this weekend at a fall show in Port Coquitlam.

PoCo resident and graphic designer Jo Galang will have her work up at the 23rd annual Art Focus Artists' Association display, an exhibition in The Outlet at Leigh Square Community Arts Village (2248 McAllister Ave.) that opens Saturday at 11 a.m. and runs until Sunday at 5 p.m. A reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 22. 

Galang said she joined the association two years ago to connect with other artists in the community. 

For her figures and landscapes, she shies away from using bright colours, employing a natural palette instead to create images based on her sketches and photographs.

The original art in the show "is really good and exciting," said Galang, who has her BFA from a Manila university. "There is a lot of talent here and I'm happy to be a part of it."

Admission is free; art demonstrations will be held and refreshments will be served. Visit myartclub.com for more details.

Meanwhile, Art Focus will host a free public demo by oil painter Daniel Tibbits on Oct. 26 in The Outlet.

Tibbets has taken part in numerous group and solo exhibitions at Gallery 8 on Saltspring Island. His presentation starts at 7 p.m.
