This year’s ReVision show on Granville Island kicks off with a reception at Granville Island Gelato and Coffee House, Thursday August 9 from 7 to 10 pm. Come on down for ice cream and coffee, and meet the eleven ReVision artists exhibiting sculptures in the Creekhouse area courtyard, passageways and shop windows.

Stay tuned for the list of participating artists!

ReVision promotes recycling through exhibitions and demonstrations of art made from or using recycled, salvaged, or found materials. Our mission is to provide a showcase for artists who upcycle materials and objects as a major component of their creative process. We aim to provide public venues to advance awareness of sustainability and zero waste / reusability.

Granville Island Gelato is at #105 1533 Johnston St., Granville Island, right on the False Creek walkway.

We, the artists of ReVision: the Art of Recycling Society, create art in order to join forces with others in highlighting the plight of our shared environment. By repurposing discarded materials and found objects into art, we hope to kindle the spirt of conservation and stewardship urgently needed today.

We ReVision artists plan a series of art shows, workshops and seminars to work with other environmental groups, green companies and government bodies to improve how we live as a society. Attitudes and laws need to change.

RSVP - The Future of ReVision

I would like to have a meeting with all people interested in contributing to ReVison in the last week of November to develop a plan for this and future events. Please RSVP for dinner at my place on Wed. Nov. 29 beginning 6PM. Address is 5230 Patrick St. Burnaby V5J 3B3.

(Or, RSVP here:
I want to establish ReVision as a thriving non profit society based on grants and sponsorships so I can avoid charging artists to exhibit.  Please stay in touch. Will keep the ReVision website and Facebook site up to date. Feel free to post any news.

All the best.
