Angela Grossman at Diane Farris Gallery
and Casablanca Night at Balthazar's

Oct 7, 2004

By Catherine Barr


It's hard to belive that artist Angela Grossman first burst onto the scene some 20 years ago. Noted as a romantic, this Emaily Carr graduate was the toast of the town at the opening reception for her "Alpha Girls" exhibit at the Diane Farris Gallery last week. Check it out until Oct 23.

Also last Thursday, the guys and gals behind Vancouver's famed Richie Rich and James Bond parties held "Casablanca Nights" at Balthazar's. The West End hotspot was transformed into a scene from Bogart's famous film complete with costumes and theme rooms.

West end resident and artist Angela Grossman, seen beside her portrait "Bunches", prides herself in being in tune with the psychological challenges facing young people.
