Oppenheimer Park and Gallery Gachet are pleased to present Reflections an exhibition showcasing artwork from the Oppenheimer Park community. To mark the 10th anniversary, artists are taking this moment to reflect on the legacy of our annual exhibition. More than thirty-five participating artists will share their personal reflections of how the Oppenheimer Park show has nourished relationships and built community through art.

Through the years this collaboration has played an integral role as a bellwhether for community, lifting up the neighbourhood’s mood, struggles and triumphs. It presents an opportunity to celebrate the neighborhood, and its residents who draw on a rich history to deepen relations. The reverberations of this exhibition are felt throughout Oppenheimer Park, the Downtown Eastside neighborhood and beyond.

Join in the fun on Friday, September 8th for the opening and community celebration with musical performance by The Carnival Band. Come out to mingle at the Meet the Artist event on Thursday, October 12th.
Visit the gallery during open hours: Wednesday to Sunday from 12–6 pm.

ABOUT THE OPPENHEIMER PARK COMMUNITY ART SHOW

The Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show began a decade ago in anticipation of the changes, challenges, and loss in a pre-Olympic city. Oppenheimer Park is “one of the few green spaces in the area and one of the oldest surviving parks in the heart of the city”. It is often referred to as “the Backyard of the Downtown Eastside” and is also one of the few inclusive spaces left for people who are homeless, or living without adequate and safe housing. The Park hosts many programs, festivals and special events, and is the busiest park, per capita in the city. Oppenheimer Park is located in the DEOD (Downtown Eastside Oppenheimer District).

For more information contact Kristin Lantz 604 687 2468 | programming@gachet.org or visit www.gachet.org

Oppenheimer Park would like to give a special thanks to: Gallery Gachet, City of Vancouver, Great Beginnings, Carnegie Community Centre Association and The Carnival Band.

*SWARM is a 2-night event filled with exhibition openings, performances, screenings and special events hosted by local Artist-run Centres (ARCs).

Expressive Arts with Katherine Somody

EVERY MONDAY (except civic holidays) from 1 – 3pm

The Expressive Arts Group began as a program through the West Coast Mental Health Network. There are about 30 participants, who meet on a drop-in basis every Monday afternoon to paint, make collages, use mark-making tools, do print-making and/or sculpture. No previous art experience is necessary to participate in the group. We operate on the belief that engaging in creative activities is physically and emotionally healing. We provide art materials, instruction (if needed and desired) and support in an inclusive, accessible and safe atmosphere. Free.  If you are interested in attending, please call 604-687-2468.
