Did you know that Cloud Cell is made of over 13,000 freshwater pearls strung onto hundreds of clear threads and suspended in the air? It’s like a 3D painting made from lines, dots, and space.

Cloud Cell is featured in the exhibition Glimmers of the Radiant Real this summer at The Reach Gallery Museum.

You can learn more about Cloud Cell in this video tour of the artwork with The Reach’s Curator of Art & Visual Culture Adrienne Fast.



See Cloud Cell for yourself at The Reach until August 15, 2020.

The Reach is located at 32388 Veterans Way, Abbotsford BC.

Hours of Operation:

Tuesday-Friday: 10 am – 5 pm
