Painters of L'Arche

L’Arche Greater Vancouver hosts The Art of Being Together
Jane Appleby stands by a collaborative piece she worked on.

March 5 is the Second Annual Art of Being Together, an art exhibition and fundraiser to benefit those with developmental disabilities.

L'Arche Greater Vancouver is hosting the event, which for over 30 years has created homes and day programs for people with and without developmental disabilities.

The exhibit features art by emerging local artists as well as pieces done collaboratively by people with and without disabilities.

The Art of Being Together also features a silent auction. Last year all but two pieces of art were sold.

The event will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. at National Nikkei Museum & Heritage Centre in Burnaby at 6688 Southoaks Crescent.

Admission is by donation, with a minimum of $5. All proceeds go to L'Arche Greater Vancouver.

For more information on The Art of Being Together, contact L'Arche's development assistant Amanda Wong at 604-435-9544 ext 33 or
