A spacious new artistic venue in Cloverdale is opening up in Cloverdale.

It’s the new fine arts studio space at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Cloverdale campus.

The grand opening of the new space coincides with Kwantlen’s Annual Fine Arts Exhibition, Stretch of Road, on view March 25 to 31 at the Cloverdale campus, 5500 180 Street in room 1843.

Kwantlen now offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts degree program along with a one-year Fine Arts certificate and two-year Fine Arts diploma.

While the Surrey campus is the centre of Kwantlen’s Fine Arts department, its studio space is quite small.

The expansive Cloverdale fine arts space has ample room for third and fourth year studios – and for large exhibitions like the annual student show.

Stretch of Road features the best student work over the past year, and should be well worth a look, as is the studio space for those who haven’t checked it out.

The exhibition party is Friday, March 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. Gallery Hours are March 28 to 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
