This month, a number of Langley artists are reunite to reminisce and to show off their recent works.
Fort Gallery is hosting its aptly named Auld Acquaintance III exhibit in the artist-run gallery space in Fort Langley. The show opened Wednesday, and continued through Feb. 9.
Auld Acquaintance III presents eight artists who at one time were all members of the gallery. They are Jennifer Chew, Rick Forbes, Bruce Giesbrecht, Scott Gordon, Fiona Moes, Claire Moore, Suzanne Northcott, and Shari Pratt, said Fort Gallery chair Bob Wakefield.
â€œFor many artists the Fort Gallery provides a safe, supportive space in which to explore new ideas and network with other artists, thereby developing their craft. Some move on to pursue other opportunities,â€ Wakefield said.
â€œFurther study, teaching, showing their work in Vancouver or applying their art practice in other fields. This alumni show is a welcome opportunity for members past and present to reconnect, generate discussion and share new work.â€
â€œPeople often walk in to the gallery, and inquire about favorite artists who were members here in the past,â€ he said.
â€œWe always look forward to seeing the artists again, and itâ€™s a wonderful opportunity to see where their creativity has led them.â€
The opening reception for Auld Acquaintance III will be held Friday, Jan. 24, from 7 to 9 p.m., at 9048 Glover Rd. More information, including hours, at www.fortgallery.ca.
