In celebration of Craft Year 2015, CCBC is partnering with the VanDusen Botanical Garden Association to present a mixed media exhibition of works inspired by the garden by 33 artists from across B.C.

While most of the materials used in traditional craft categories – clay, wood, glass, fibre and metal – are found in nature, works selected for Botanically Inspired use these materials to interpret the world of plants conceptually, figuratively or poetically, whether it is the rose’s thorn that inspires a piece of furniture or the cacophony of colours throughout the garden that inspires the palate used.

* The opening reception is a fundraiser supporting CCBC and VBGA youth programs.
