Boomerang Fine Arts—the gallery section of downtown Vancouver’s popular coffee shop, hang-out, and secondhand home furnishings store—will host a special holiday exhibit through the end of this month: Art is a Gift. Every piece of art in this show is $100. Visit both the upper and lower floor galleries to see nearly 150 original artworks, paintings, and pottery by local artists.
From 5 to 9 p.m. on First Friday, Dec. 2, the public is invited to a special reception with live music and complimentary light refreshments (free house coffee and small sweet treats), plus a chance to meet the artists themselves. For more information, contact Tom Relth at 360-561-4245 or
Boomerang is located at 808 Main St. in downtown Vancouver. Proceeds from everything sold in the store go straight to local charities and community projects.
