Beautifully staged, the West Fine Art Show offers soothing artistic ambiance accentuated by guitar music performed by John Gilliat, and visitors to the show will enjoy the opportunity to meet and speak with each artist.

Also staged at the event will be a ‘Remembering Jeff Robinson’ display in honour of Red Robinson’s son, Jeff, who passed away from Crohn’s Disease at the age of 33; an ‘Emerging Youth Artists’ display from Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary students; and a $2 art draw.

A portion of all art sales will be donated to the C.H.I.L.D Foundation to fund research for children who have Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and liver disorders.

A late summer edition of the show is also being planned at Glass House Estate Winery in Langley Sept. 21-23.
