The Langley Centennial Museum is pleased to announce the exhibition Resurface: The Trinity Western University Grad Art Show. TWU has partnered with the Museum for four consecutive years to present the exhibit, and this year nine TWU students will showcase their work. Melissa Alvaro, Chapman Chan, Chelsea Davidson, Rachel Dyck, Elizabeth Ellis, Katrina Grabowski, Braden Jones, Laura Klassen, and Rebecca Sellers have devoted their talents to preparing the multiple features of the exhibition and will be contributing works that are the culmination of their art education.
Artists materials are constantly repurposed over time. Canvases are built up with layers of theory, practice, and medium. Moulds are broken and recast, just as clay can continually be renewed by the potter. The past is not simply disregarded; instead, it informs the foundation of the future.
In the same way, the artists have invested four years of academic study which is culminating in this exhibition. What has been taught, explored, and wrestled with inspires their artistic decisions. This exhibition is not a final surface. What is presented at the museum will one day be a layer of memory. But now is the time for celebrating the images presently visible, the dialogues currently exchanged, and the artists' initial emergence into professional practice.
An opening reception will be held at the museum, located at 9135 King Street in Fort Langley, on Thursday, March 29, from 6:30 - 9:00 pm. All are welcome.
