Something for Everyone at Arbor Gallery in April

Spring is in the air and things are moving at Arbor Gallery, with the presentation of an exhibition, a storytelling evening, a concert and a giant art sale.

Saturday April 23 – Conversation with Tom Cooper, author

On April 23, Arbor Gallery welcomes author and storyteller Tom Cooper. A resident of Vankleek Hill from 1981 to 2004, he worked for several years as a commercial pilot and many other roles, including voiceover narrator, business program teacher, photography and digital camera technology.

Now retired and back to writing, Cooper has released three short story compilations – offering his readers a glimpse into the frenetic comedic side of everyday senior life from his light-hearted and sometimes irreverent perspective.

A gifted and witty storyteller, Tom is sure to provide an entertaining and fun evening for all Arbor Gallery guests.

“These books describe funny moments and anecdotes from an elderly man’s point of view,” Cooper explains mischievously. “Women will laugh, men will laugh more”.

Conversation with Tom Cooper will take place on Saturday, April 23 at 7 p.m., in the main hall of the gallery. His books will be available on site that evening. They are also available for sale locally at The Review and Vankleek Cottage.
