See the remarkable talent of the individuals teaching the next generation of this province’s artists! Shift: Kwantlen Polytechnic University Fine Arts Faculty opens July 22 at Surrey Art Gallery. Visitors will see works in traditional painting, ceramics, photography, and sculpture. The exhibit continues until November 5. Admission is free.
Responsible for guiding the visions of many emerging Surrey-based artists, Kwantlen’s fine arts professors and instructors are formidable experts within their respective disciplines. Their practices encompass both the physical and theoretical exploration of material. Some artworks push the limits of the form, demonstrating mastery of traditional media, while others focus on how images are artificially constructed via technology. All are unified by a keen interest in using artistic media to create compelling imagery and to address socially relevant topics such as personal health, the subconscious, and the construction of text.
Artists in Shift include Elizabeth Barnes, Ana Black, Ying-Yueh Chang, Bastien DesFriches Doria, Sibeal Foyle, Jessica Gnyp, Heather Lippold, Alison MacTaggart, Paulo Majano, Scott McBride, Maria Anna Parolin, Terry Sawatzky, Liz Toohey-Wiese, and Kira Wu.
