A Night at the ROAM Gallery in Vancouver BC

I visited the ROAM Gallery and saw a vibrant collection of artists show their pride and work, hosted by Jennifer Angers Daerendinger.  This is always a great evening, with the gallery full of smiling faces and a roar of conversation, with a bar for a cheeky tipple if that takes your fancy. The ROAM predominantly shows up-and-coming artists in the Vancouver area, and also occasionally some renowned artists from across the continent.
