You’ve Gotta Have Friends is inviting members of the community to submit artworks for its annual show during Arts Alive.

Show takes artists of all ages

Painting, drawing, photography, sculpture or in written form such as poetry or stories – any artistic medium is accepted in the annual You’ve Gotta Have Friends community art show during Arts Alive.

“We welcome everyone, young and old, to submit creative works that express a sense of celebration. This is open to all members of the community and in any form that strikes your fancy,” said Pat Weibelzahl, with YGHF.

There’s no entry fee and the only criteria – the piece must be able to be hung or displayed and that it fits the theme Expressions of Celebration.

The pieces will be on display outside the YGFH office at 20510 Fraser Hwy.

“We are located in McBurney Lane… and with the Arts Alive main stage located just outside our door lots of people are drawn into the office to view the show and vote for their favorite pieces,” she said.

People have until 4 p.m. on Aug. 17 to drop off their works at the YGHF office which is open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Questions can be directed to 604-533-6546 or
