A photo essay of ArtConnect’s recent show at the Pendulum Gallery in Vancouver is now mounted at Port Coquitlam city hall. The Tri-City arts group staged its exhibit, titled Riverview – Our Iconic Landscape, at the Vancouver venue to pay tribute to the Coquitlam mental health institution, which is now undergoing a visioning process. The PoCo display — on the main floor of city hall — features images from Manfred Kraus. Next month, more Riverview-themed artwork from the Pendulum show will be added by artists Sherry Carroll, Eunice Hodge and Freda Du Plessis.
