FOUR decades of art and craft were celebrated last weekend with the launch of the Vancouver Art Centre (VAC) 40th Exhibition.

Saturday saw people trickling in all day to explore the centre’s history, learn about its origins and see samples of visiting artists’ works.

The exhibition is comprised of both artwork and historical record and is open to the public until November 12.

Exhibition curator Annette Davis said VAC was a place of inspiration, vision, hard work and creative passion.

“The VAC is such an important part of Albany’s cultural life and the challenge with an exhibition like this it to try and adequately represent its rich history,” she said.

“So many events and activities have happened here over the past 40 years that it is impossible to include or mention everything.

“I hope that when people come to the exhibition, they learn about, or are reminded of, the significant projects that have happened here.”

The exhibition is open weekdays from 10am to 4pm until November 12.
