“Inceptions,” At The Kariton Gallery

By February 24, 2014Arts/Culture

Submitted. The Abbotsford Arts Council announces its next show at the Kariton Art Gallery: “Inceptions,” showcasing artwork by students graduating from the University of the Fraser Valley in 2014 with a diploma in visual arts.

This exhibition highlights the different disciplines students would use during the completion of this two year diploma. Works will range from printmaking and installation, to painting and sculpture. Some students have taken on the extra challenge of producing new work specifically for this exhibition and re-investigating their previous work through installation concerns and connections to other areas of their practice. This exhibition allows the students to share their journey of their creative process and personal research with the community.

Seven artists will be featured in the exhibition, including:

• Ashley Bulthuis
• Jessica Koplar
• Julie Epp
• Kaitlyn Ross
• Lisa Edwards
• Michelle Auton
• Tasha Hinterbrandner

The show will run from March 7 to April 1 at the Kariton Art Gallery, located in Mill Lake Park at 2387 Ware Street. The gallery’s hours are Tuesday to Friday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday to Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The artists will be present at an opening reception on Sunday, March 9, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. For additional information, please contact the Abbotsford Arts Council by phone at (604) 852-9358, by email at abbotsfordartscouncil@gmail.com, or visit our website at abbotsfordartscouncil.org.
