A fun and social night was had by all at last night’s FVEPA Mix, Mingle and Networking meeting held at the beautiful South Surrey Recreation and Semiahmoo Arts Centre.  We were in the arts portion of the building, a mecca for artists and art lovers alike.  There are large rooms perfectly decked out for art projects such as painting, clay sculpture, and mixed media.  The east end of the building is all windows looking onto a deep green grove of trees: perfect for the artists’ inspiration. The space can be used for team building exercises, club and group meetings, and teaching.  And the best part?  The art is available for rent!  You can play the part of the connoisseur in your own home by switching out your wall art monthly, yearly, whenever it suits you.  If you love a particular piece, rent it for your home space, rent it for an event, you can buy it outright or rent to own; splitting the payments into 12 manageable chunks to pay over a year.  This service is perfect for people who like to change up the décor in their home, event planners looking to create a gallery space or homey atmosphere for an event, home stagers and realtors looking to spruce up a property, venues looking to pique guests’ interest with local art…and many more.  It’s such an innovative way to promote local artists, and the centre was a beautiful place to visit.  If you were there last night, we thank you for coming out.  If not, we hope to see you at our next event in September!
