Cranbrook Arts Programs
Cranbrook Arts is full of hustle and bustle at the 1401 Art Space location (1401 5th Street North) this coming month. There are classes for all ages and creative interests. Some highlights are from Sip and Knit with Henny Hansen on Tuesday Nights from 7-9, Thrummed Mittens on February 1st, Paverpol Sculpture on February 8th, and Acrylics with John de Jong on February 22 & 23rd is always a favorite. For the budding artists there is Tots on Tuesday and Art Afterschool on Tuesday and Wednesday. Register for any of the adventures in inspiration on Eventbrite or come into Cranbrook Arts on 1013 Baker Street.
At our Baker Street location Cranbrook Arts Presents “Being Wild: A Show of Photographic Works by Aaron Oliveri”. Aaron’s goal as a photographer is to share great images, and get people excited about the world we live in. Aaron is a wildlife photographer from Cranbrook, BC. Taking after his father, Aaron started to learn how to photograph in 2012 when he joined his father on a trip to Alaska. Aaron always enjoyed the outdoors but this is when his passion for photography took off. Aaron never knows what he will photograph on his trips but he tries to capture the life, expression, and intensity of the subject. Aaron’s most recent achievement includes taking his first pictures of a lynx with its kittens. It was said of Aaron’s work that “it invokes emotion of the wild reality that surrounds us.” His images are real and natural and remind us of the raw truth of what lies outside of the city lights.”
