Older and bolder: Senior artists featured in New Westminster exhibition

Convergent/Intersections is on at Anvil Centre's Community Art Gallery March 11 to April 22
Convergent Intersections
Triangle, by Axel Breutigam, is one of the works featured in the upcoming Convergent/ Intersections exhibition at Anvil Centre's Community Art Gallery.

Bold, powerful and full of energy.

That’s how a group of senior artists describe the work that viewers will see in an upcoming exhibition at the Anvil Centre’s Community Art Gallery.

Convergent/Intersections is on at the gallery from March 11 to April 22. An opening reception is set for Thursday, March 17 from 5 to 7 p.m.

The exhibition features the work of the bolder gallery artist collective, who describe themselves as a “loose association of like-minded people, 65 years and plus.”

It includes artists Axel Breutigam, Melenie Fleischer, Annette Nieukerk, Joyce Ozier and Richard Wilson.

“We are bound together by the passion, the spark that we each have for our work and the creation of it that has not diminished with the passing of time,” the artists say in a statement. “Indeed, for most of us, that desire to express our individual voice, to speak through our art, has never been stronger despite our advancing years.”

The gallery is on the third floor at Anvil Centre, 777 Columbia St.
