From September 7th through October 28th, 2018, Oppenheimer Park and Gallery Gachet are pleased to present what these trees have seen, an exhibition showcasing artwork from the Oppenheimer Park community. Included are paintings, drawings, print, sculpture, carvings and mixed media works. Artists will be present at the opening reception, Friday September 7th, 2018. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 12pm-6pm.

Oppenheimer Park is the site of Legacy Sakura trees planted in 1977 by a group of over 70 first generation seniors as part of a project coordinated by the Tonari Gumi (Japanese Community Volunteers Association). This year’s exhibition considers the wisdom and beauty of these historic trees and will delve into the themes of nature, time and place generated through community meetings and a vote in June 2018. Thirty-five artists’ diverse interpretations will be featured in the show.

ABOUT OPPENHEIMER PARK ART SHOW

The Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show began in 2008 in anticipation of the changes, challenges and loss in a pre-Olympic city. It presented an opportunity to recognize the existing neighbourhood and its residents who play important roles in creating community by drawing on their history despite challenges and struggles. 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 Downtown Eastside, a resolute community who uphold a vision of the Park as a place for art, education, recreation, health and healing.

Oppenheimer Park would like to give a special thanks to our funders, sponsors, and partners.
