Last Friday was the Opening Reception for BIMPE X at the Federation Gallery!
We had a great time, and even though Peter was feeling under the weather, he pulled through! Thanks to Peter for his dedication, without which BIMPE would not have happened for the last 20 years!
Thank you to everyone who joined us to the party – it was great seeing everyone enjoying the prints and meeting some of the artists! We got to see 1st place winner Masaaki Sugita, Opus Prize winner Vanessa Hall-Patch, Honourable Mention Kalli Kalde, and Yolaine Labelle.
A big thanks to everyone, staff, volunteers, and friends, who helped set up everything for the opening! We appreciate every bit of cooperation.
Thanks to Marsha for the lovely Ikebana arrangements displayed at the opening!
Thanks to the Federation Gallery for hosting the exhibition, and thanks to all the volunteers who donated their time for this exhibition to happen.
Thanks to our sponsors who supported the BIMPE X opening: V & J Plants, Liberty Wine Merchants, and Benton Fine Cheese.
A big thanks to our Prize Sponsors: Opus Art Supplies, Awagami Paper, and Gamblin Artists Colors.
Special thanks to the Craft Council of BC for their ongoing support in organizing BIMPE X.
