The Fort Gallery will host the alumni artists in an exhibition titled, Full Circle 2.

The exhibit runs from March 16 to April 3.

Focusing on visual art ranging from paintings to sculptures, the collective formed in 2005 with emerging artists who either lived or worked in the Township.

Since then the group’s participants have hailed from all over the Lower Mainland.

Often experimental in its works, the collective seeks to engage the public in current issues through thought-provoking imagery.

The new program is featuring those who have all been part of the group at some point in the past, and who eventually circled back, hence the name of the exhibition.

The gallery houses around 20 artists annually, and has been hosting art shows, book launches and poetry readings for 11 years.

Serving as a gathering place for practicing artists, it allows them to critique each other’s work while searching for a contemporary edge, and has launched many careers in the visual arts medium.

Six alumni artists are participating in the exhibition, which is open from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and is located at 9048 Glover Rd. in Fort Langley.
