All items on display in the City Hall cases are available for purchase - simply leave a message at 604 931 2008 (ext. 102) or email blackberrygiftshop [at] live dot ca to arrange to have it brought to the shop for you.

Art at Council: Vicki Allesia

by Vicki Allesia
Every so often, City Hall asks us to provide a piece of art at council.
As the City of the Arts, it is important to show artists to the general public and for us as an artist society, it's fun to tell the story behind a piece of art.
This month, Blackberry member and treasurer presented her art to Port Moody city council. After being introduced by the mayor, Mike Clay, Vicki described how a painting emerged and then re-emerged as she worked through her artistic process.
Enjoy the story - you can listen in the clip here.
