Woman Celebrates Olympics and Lunar New Year with Paintings by Chilliwack Artists and Richard Brodeur – Chilliwack Progress


A Chilliwack woman shares four works of art by local artists and a famous retired hockey player to celebrate the 2022 Beijing Olympics and Lunar New Year.

Both events were celebrated around the world this week. On February 1, people ring in the Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year. The opening ceremony of the Olympics took place on February 3.

Asai Wu-Brandt, who has organized several international art exhibitions in the past, contacted Progress to share the works of three artists: Errol Brimacome and Patricia Jaster of Chilliwack, and retired hockey player Richard Brodeur who played for the Vancouver Canucks from 1980 to 1988.

She hopes people will “celebrate the New Year and welcome the Winter Olympics” with the artwork.

The pieces were part of an online exhibition called Cloud Exhibition of International Famous Artists’ Art Works, presented by the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries.

A total of 43 countries and 115 artists participated in this exhibition, presenting a total of 126 works.

“Sport and art are borderless,” Wu-Brandt said.

People can view the exhibit online.
