June 5: Carmen Tome opening

Once a year, in June, there is a Portuguese Heritage Month in Vancouver where we get to celebrate all things Portuguese. A few artists, including myself, are exhibiting our artworks at Chapel Arts Gallery on Dunlevy (corner of Cordova and Dunlevy). I know its late notice for tonight's opening reception but it is on all month long. The doors will be locked (due to the neighborhood) but just knock loudly and you will be let in. Hope to see you there.

It is with great pleasure that our organization invites you to attend the
