Life on display at Fort Gallery
Lifescapes: Two Perspectives, an exhibit of work by artists Deborah Colvin and Olga Khodyreva, opens on April 16 to May 4 at the Fort Gallery.
Colvin is a Coquitlam-based artist whose pen/ink and soft pastel pieces explore Aristotle’s philosophy that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
In her work, “the fragmentation and repetition of the human form and its parts, serve to draw the viewer into a world of movement, contemplation and a myriad of emotions.”
Khodyreva’s pieces, meanwhile, reflect the artist’s day to day experiences, without belonging to any particular artistic style.
This freedom allows the Port Coquitlam artist to express her creativity in the most unadulterated fashion.
A meet and greet with the artists will be held on Friday, April 25, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and again on Sunday, April 27, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fort Gallery, 9048 Glover Rd.
The gallery is open each Wednesday to Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
