We Go to an Art Opening

Stratford has an amazingly rich cultural life for a city of less than thirty-thousand people.

We don't take nearly as much advantage as we should. But this past Sunday, we did go to an opening at Gallery Stratford.

Alan Johnson: Uncommon Views and Margaret Pryde: Impressions both opened on Sunday. It was a good crowd and speeches were given by the artists.

The fact that we know both of them made the event that much better.

I highly recommend that you look around your area and find the local galleries.

Go have a look at the work. Become a member. Go to the openings. It's a wonderful way to learn to see the world from a new perspective.

And if you live near Stratford, these shows run until March 23. Check the website for details.
