Silk Purse Bob yoshisuke Araki Exhibit - West Vancouver Community Arts Council

Jan 17, 2006

By Catherine Barr


West Vancouver's intimate Silk Purse Gallery has opened one of its first exhibits of the year with Bob Yoshisuki Araki's "Scotland, my Favourite County". Influenced by the summers he spent in the "old country" , Araki's paintings will be on display until Jan 29th. Join in on Thursday Jan 26th with a special concert celebrating Scottish poet Robert Burns.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd, , and

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
