Boomerang will host a special exhibit by Clark College art students, “Tell Me a Story,” during the month of February. The exhibit is in cooperation with Clark College art professor Grant Hottle and members of the Clark College Art Club, including full time artist and past president Matthew L. Tycer, plus Martin Stone, Andy Bao, Claudia Carter and Kelly Pearce. Beginning with an opening reception on First Friday, Feb. 3, the upper and lower level galleries will display works from Clark College student artists using various media.
The exhibit is in line withe the Clark College Art Club mission: to provide opportunities outside the classroom to pursue the study of art and art history. The club ensures safe studio spaces after hours, visits to galleries and museums, and student engagement. Art Club provides a forum for discussions about art and creativity.
Drop by Boomerang any time from 5 to 9 p.m. on First Friday for live music, complimentary light refreshments, and a chance to meet the artists. The exhibit continues through Feb. 28. While you’re there, you’ll want to enjoy some treats from the coffee shop and browse through Boomerang’s huge collection of home décor items, jewelry, books and more, while your kids hang out in the indoor treehouse. Proceeds from the sale of all items go directly to local charities and nonprofit organizations. To learn more, visit www.boomerangvancouver.com.
