There is a fresh opportunity for young artists to exhibit in Abbotsford.

The most recent exhibit in the Art on Demand series at The Reach (32388 Veterans Way) in Abbotsford features art by Sidi Chen and Nancy Timmermans.
Chen, who is also president of the Visual Arts Students Association at the University of the Fraser Valley, is showing three oil paintings that are thematically connected and share titles: The Pond of Duck and Lotus I, II, and III. Timmermans (Trinity Western University) displays a series of familial portrait sketches on wood panels.
In her statement on the exhibit, curator Alisha Sandhu notes that both artists’ works “grapple with the many ways that we understand and construct identity.”
Dozens of friends, family, fellow artists, and community members attended the opening of Art on Demand, as well as two other exhibits at The Reach, on the evening of September 22, where the artists were present to field questions and discuss their work.
