Sustaining Memories Opening Reception by Colleen Carroll for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Thursday Nov 4 2010

Opening Reception
SUSTAINING MEMORIES Colleen Carroll
Thursday November 4, 6pm-8pm
radha yoga & eatery, 728 Main 2nd floor
Exhibition November 4 to 30

Downtown Eastside artist Colleen Carroll has lived at Main and Hastings for nine years after moving here from the north due to severe health challenges. She loves it here and says she’s “never looked back.” “Painting helps me in many ways. It makes me focus on things other than my pain and poor memory. It takes me back in time and place to where and when I had my health. It lets me record the beauty I have found, and still find, in my life, living here in the DTES.” She works in acrylic, mostly on canvas, with subjects from Haida Gwaii to Ecuador but mostly her work these days is of “the hood.” (Colleen Carroll) For tonight’s reception Stan Hudac will play some of Colleen’s favourite piano selections and as a special Diwali treat, Nazil Kara will do complimentary mehndi designs for the guests. The eatery is open for dinner 6pm-10pm. For information 604-605-0011 or www.radhavancouver.org
