The exhibition, curated Taslim Samji, includes the work of six professional and emerging female Ismaili Muslim artists who migrated to Canada from their birthplace of East Africa, with cultural roots from India and surrounding countries.

An opening reception was held Saturday, Nov. 8, and NOW photographer Jennifer Gauthier stopped by to check it out.

The Deer Lake Gallery is at 6584 Deer Lake Ave. It's open Tuesdays to Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. See www.burnabyartscouncil.org.
