TWU senior art students host multimedia show

A group of advanced art and design students from Trinity Western University present Retracing Social Practice

A group of advanced art and design students from Trinity Western University (TWU) are presenting a two-month multimedia exhibit, Retracing Social Practice.

Running until April 30 at the Langley Centennial Museum, the show features a variety of paintings, drawings and 3D art installations. All pieces explore themes of social practices and how they effect thoughts, practices and perceptions of reality.

Two honours students are featuring solo exhibitions. Hats of Possibility, by Langley resident Darby Arens, has over 150 paper hats. Each shows a handwritten childhood dream, inviting the viewer to reconnect with his or her imagination.

Gabrielle Shallahamer, also a resident of Langley, presents σημείωσις/Sēmeiōsis, a piece on the practice of observing and interpreting signs. It incorporates keys the artist collected from hotels all over the world over a period of several years.

Admission is free. There is an opening reception tonight (March 8) at 6:30 p.m.

Langley Centennial Museum is located at 9135 King St. in Fort Langley.
