Live music lovers, don’t forget that Deer Lake Gallery is the place to be in October.
Coming up on Friday, Oct. 5, it’s the first Cinq À Sept of the season. French for “Five to Seven,” a Cinq À Sept event is an after-work gathering that features mingling, food and drink.
The gallery is bringing in Juno-nominated guitarist-composer Bill Coon to provide entertainment, while guests mingle and check out Watermarks, a group exhibition featuring the work of Michael Abelman, Amelia Alcock-White and Graham Coulthard.
Then, on Friday, Oct. 12, the gallery is hosting Live at the Gallery, the next performance in an ongoing series of live music events.
“Live at the Gallery is an opportunity for Deer Lake to have another regular venue for local musicians to play and local enthusiasts to listen,” says a write-up about the event. “It also provides an opportunity to subvert the often rigid structure of an art gallery by having an interactive presentation being held within it.”
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and music starts at 7 p.m. – featuring Alanna Ho and Nicholas Marriot.
Both events are free, but as space is limited, anyone who wants to attend is asked to register at www.eventbrite.com.
Deer Lake Gallery is at 6584 Deer Lake Ave. For more information, see www.burnabyartscouncil.org or call 604-298-7322.
