The Port Moody Public Library is displaying works by Paula Ledenko throughout October.
"Bright, bold and clean, the way a young child sees the world is the style that Ledenko has chosen to use in her painting," a press release states. "Her pieces are meant to evoke a sense of peace and simple happiness that automatically draws the viewer in."
Ledenko's inspiration comes from the many natural scenes around Coquitlam.
Thanks to her young daughter, Ledenko has taken the time to slow down and appreciate the little things in life: the flowers, leaves and bugs - all the stuff we take for granted.
The Port Moody Public Library is located at 100 Newport Dr.
New choir seeks members It's all about the chops.
A new community choir has come to the Tri-Cities with seasoned music director Michael Grice taking the lead to help clear those throats and get that melody hidden deep inside to come out.
The new choir, titled Choral Connections, is open to all singers from novice to experts, as long as they are interested in joining a nonauditioned choir that functions in a safe, supportive, collegial learning and performing environment. "I am excited about this opportunity to work with Choral Connections, a choir of dedicated adults, and to help them explore the world of choral music in all its varied repertoire genres from classical to jazz," Grice said in a press release.
Rehearsals have already begun, but potential members can call Peggy Koopman at 604-465-6599 or Terry Bates at 604-356-4970. More information can be found at choralconnections.ca.
