The Fort Gallery’s 2019 juried exhibition contemplates the imprinted mark and its conceptual significance. The word imprint conjures up many meanings: from printmaking, the process of creating an image from a matrix; from biology, the process of interpreting DNA into protein, the imprinting of parents on their young or our ecological footprint. The process of imprinting is everywhere; everything we touch and every place we go, we leave a trace of ourselves; everything we do leaves a mark, a consequence.
Jurors reviewed 46 submitted pieces exploring this theme; 12 artworks were selected. The included artists are: Emily Arnett, Janice Beaudoin, W Bennett Brown, Olivia de Fleuriot Perry, Susan Germain, Erica Grimm, Jenny Hawkinson, Sunette Holmes Louw, David Martinello, Adrienne Moore, Vicky Paradise and Kara Wightman.
Imprint runs April 3-28, 2019. Please join us for the opening reception, Friday, April 5th, 7-9pm. Many of the artists will be in attendance and will be giving short talks on their work. The gallery will also be hosting a 4th Friday writer’s event with Fort Langley poet Susan McCaslin in conjunction with the exhibit’s closing reception on April 26th, 7-9pm.
The Fort Gallery wishes to thank the Township of Langley and Metro Vancouver for sponsorship of Imprint.
