Poster for the Rains World Art ShowThe Pitt Meadows Art Gallery has reopened and its first exhibition features the work of artist Rain Pierre from the Katzie First Nation and the RainAwakens Team.

This exhibition, titled “Rain’s World – Whispers of the Ancestors: Echoes of Timeless Art” and on display until Apr. 5, is a journey into the vivid dreams and cultural heritage of Rain Pierre. Admission is free for the main floor display.

For a deeper dive into Rain’s visionary artistry, an exclusive upstairs experience awaits featuring larger pieces from his collection with admission. Don’t miss the chance to engage with Rain himself at special evening shows on select Fridays and Saturdays from 6 p.m.to 8:30 p.m.

This showcase of a local talent promises to be a captivating celebration of Indigenous artistry.

Rain’s rise to artistic success highlights his strong commitment and deep ties to his heritage. He is a proud member of Katzie First Nation, the LGBTQ2s+ and recovery community. Celebrating nearly 4 years of sobriety, Rain shares his life story and the beauty of First Nation culture through an array of mediums to inspire others to dream while they are awake.

Each year, the Pitt Meadows Art Gallery hosts six exhibitions each year at its main gallery and four exhibitions at their pop-up gallery, located at City Hall. All exhibits feature local and regional artists, as well as artisans.
