We are a group of artists who get together to paint, to have workshops, and to host art exhibitions each year to share our work with the community. We are located in the heart of Maple Ridge, at the ACT Arts Centre and Theatre. Most of our activities take place on the third floor at the ACT. Our exhibitions take place in a variety of locations.
The Garibaldi Art Club of Maple Ridge has been in existence since 1959. We have been displaying original artwork in our community ever since. We provide our members with opportunities to learn, to grow as artists, to share their work with the community, and, most importantly, a chance to meet other artists and make lifelong friends.
Our members range from beginners to professional artists. Artists of all skill levels are welcome and find that involvement in our club inspires them and enhances their skills and creativity.
Our activities are varied and provide something for everyone:
• Monthly business meetings
• Get-togethers to paint several times per month
• Interesting workshops to learn new techniques and skills
• Opportunities to show artwork at juried and non-juried events
• Club dinners to socialize with other members
• Plein-air painting excursions in the summer
• Participating in the occasional Farmers’ Market and other interesting events.
