New West 7
from August 1, 2017 to August 31, 2017
Van Dop Gallery presents the New West 7 – Angela Au Hemphill, Teressa Bernard, Jim Walsh ( aka J.Charles), Leslie Poole, Lanta Meng, Gabor Gasztonyi, and Jerry MacLaughlin - a group of artists who live and work in the City OF New Westminster. Gallery owner and creator of the New West Cultural Crawl, Trudy Van Dop, appropriately coined the name for this local group of artists in a reference to the famous Canadian group of painters, the Group of Seven. Much like the original Group of Seven, the seven artists featured in the upcoming New West exhibition each hold a significant amount of acclaim as nationally celebrated artists.
