A check for $6,000 from a previous humanitarian relief fundraiser will also be presented at the exhibit.

A Tri-City group that celebrates Polish culture launched its annual art exhibit at Port Moody City Hall yesterday (July 4).

The official opening of the seventh Polish-Canadian art fusion exhibition is scheduled for Saturday, July 10 and will feature works by 27 Polish artists currently living in British Columbia.

One of the pieces is a giant Whistler Mountain Gallery painting by Dominik Modlinski.

Hana and Tony Kostka of the Polonez Tri-City Polish Association said many exhibiting artists also participated in the Polish Artists for Ukraine Art Auction, held during the BC Polish Festival in Port Coquitlam in May.

The check for this fundraiser, which raised more than $6,000 for humanitarian relief in Ukraine, will be presented at the grand opening which will take place from 2 to 5 p.m.

The art exhibit closes July 15 at Port Moody City Hall – located at 100 Newport Dr.

Meanwhile, after the grand opening, the association will hold a concert called The Art of Music at the Inlet Theater starting at 4:30 p.m.

The Vancouver Folk Ensemble will perform “Oy u luzi chervona kalyna”, a song also known as the second national anthem of Ukraine.

Admission is $30 and interested attendees can reserve tickets by visiting The Art of Music’s page on Brown Paper Tickets or by calling 604-380-3805.
