“Threshold” A Survey of Works by Kwantlen Nation Artist

In the Gallery Centre 64 from April 26th to May 21st

Kwantlen Nation Artist Brandon Gabriel’s work is situated somewhere amongst many styles of art and despite the variations of mediums and styles- one thing that is strikingly similar to all these works are the spectral colours and similar narratives of cultural, political, and spiritual reclamations. His work is situated neither here nor there- A threshold.”

The Odd Couple

Cranbrook Community Theatre presents “The Odd Couple,” at the Studio Stage Door in Cranbrook. Neil Simon’s most famous work comes to the stage next month with both new and veteran local acting talent. Bob Wakulich is gruff, easygoing and sarcastic as Oscar Madison, a sportswriter whose financial and marital failures are exemplified in his sloppy appearance and garbage-filled apartment. A recent divorcee, Oscar is lovable but impossible to live with – a situation his best friend Felix Ungar suddenly finds very familiar.
