Doors Open in Richmond is a first for British Columbia but has been running a number of years in Ontario. The idea originated in Europe. For two days, April 26th and 27th, from 10 am to 4 pm, over 30 sites are free, open, and expecting visitors. It is a chance to visit places like the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, a Buddhist temple and a mosque. Full information and a map can be found at www.richmond.ca/doorsopen
As part of this, several artists are holding Open Studios. This is a chance to browse, meet the artist, ask questions - and have what we hope is an enjoyable outing. Along with my neighbour-artist, Alice Saunders, at 8171 Fairdell Crescent, I am holding a free draw for an original painting - so there is your chance for *two* free paintings - as well as the regular Doors Open draw for Gateway Theatre tickets, local wines and other goodies.
My address is 8751 Fairdell Place - just down the cul-de-sac from Alice, and I'm looking forward to Doors Open!
