See Spirits of the Forest

New show at the New Creations Gallery in Maple Ridge

Maple Ridge artist Jack Prasad latest exhibition feature Spirits of the Forest.

Spirits of the Forest will be the last public exhibition at New Creations as Prasad moves onto other ventures that include painting a mural in Seattle.

Prasad opened the downtown Maple Ridge space two years ago as a venue where people could see artists at work and soak in their creativity.  At its peak, the space was home to five resident artists, each with their own studio. It still features the first-of-its-kind Lumiére Noire showroom, which displays Prasad’s work in luminous paint that comes alive in black light.

“It’s hard to find support for a private gallery,” said Prasad, who kept the gallery space open seven days a week.

New Creations will be now open by appointment.

• A reception for Spirits of the Forest will be held on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
