Hello dear friends!

Sincere apologies for lack of updates on the site and blog, but today is a new day. Let me update you on some new things at Cafe for Contemporary Art.

First of all, this Friday is art opening for Cafca’s newest exhibition entitled: Perspectives on Community: Images on the theme of community by North Vancouver Secondary Students.

In previous years, North Vancouver’s Presentation House has held a similar exhibition for secondary students, however, due to lack of funding this year, the exhibition was unable to continue at that location. This year’s exhibition helps to further understand our communities and what a “community” means to its public. The contribution of high school students in such an exhibit adds a different perspective through viewing such a theme. We felt that it was crucial to provide these individuals with a space for expressing their thoughts, so, this year the exhibit will be held at Cafe for Contemporary Art.

Come down to Cafca on Friday May 7th at 5pm, to celebrate the opening of this exhibition and open a discussion on community and what it means. The exhibit will run until May 23, 2010.

We have just gotten word that we have been selected as one of the semi-finalist cafes in Vancouver for the Krups Kup of Excellence, created by KRUPS, a major supplier of personal coffee related equipment and appliances. “KRUPS developed this prestigious award to recognize the commitment of independent cafés to brewing superior-tasting espresso in a unique environment that celebrates Canadians’ passion for skillfully prepared coffee.” The 2009 winner of this award in Vancouver was 49th Parallel.
Public voting for the award will begin June 1st, 2010, so look for more information about this in the next few weeks.

Finally, I would like to introduce myself, Robyn Yager, as Cafe for Contemporary Art’s newest member. After visiting Cafca and speaking to Tyler about art, coffee, and his visions for his space I was immediately interested in the programs it was making available to the community and the area as well as its devotion to great coffee! As a result, here I am – dividing my time between making you espresso and managing much of Cafca’s communications. So, look forward to updates, and I will do my best to provide you dear friends with information on upcoming programs, gallery exhibits, and cafe news!
