The Fort Gallery in Fort Langley, is preparing to host two shows at the same time, featuring work by two of its most experienced artists. Fresh new works from both Veronica Plewman and Kristin Krimmel, will be presented at the gallery, in ‘Cloudscapes’ and ‘Sketches of Venice,’ starting on Sept. 11, with a public opening reception to be held on Sunday, Sept. 15.
Plewman’s new work explores symbols of transition: portals, tunnels, ladders, passageways, arches, stairs, trees, windows, including the stained glass ones in the Abbey just up the hill from her home.
She uses all of these elements to show how the external world influences consciousness.
She uses the tools of painting and deals with colour, light and movement.
In August, 2012, Krimmel was invited to be Artist in Residence at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica Venezia. During four weeks of her residency in April and May this year, she photographed and sketched buildings, canals, tourist and residents of this historic and iconic city on water, gathering imagery for larger works upon her return to Canada.
This is the first public showing of her small etchings, watercolours and chalk drawings from her travels.
Both shows,“Cloudscapes” & “Sketches of Venice” will exhibit at the Fort Gallery from Sept. 11 to 29, with the opening reception on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m, Wednesday to Sunday. The gallery is located at 9048 Glover Rd. in Fort Langley.
