Students of TWU will host a multimedia art exhibit at Langley Centennial Museum.

Senior art students of Trinity Western University (TWU) will host an exhibit running until Apr. 30 at Langley Centennial Museum. Retracing Social Practice opens Sunday, Mar. 6 with a range of types of work.

Local graphic design boutique, Flying Horse Design Studio is supporting the exhibit which the firm’s owner, Christie Wengranowski sees as a win/win.

“I felt it was a good fit,” Wengranowski said. “It’s kind of exciting to be working with the community.”

Flying Horse previously hired a TWU grad to join the firm’s team and now is involved in both financial and creative support to TWU’s School of the Arts, Media + Culture (SMAC).

As a former Langley Fine Arts student, Wengranowski knows the importance of education and exposure for the TWU students.

“I’ve been working with [SAMC] since last year,” she said.

The coming exhibition touches on themes of social practices; how people think about them and interpret them, through paintings, drawings, and 3D art pieces.

In addition to collection of work to be displayed, there will be the solo exhibitions of two TWU honours students.

Langley’s Darby Arens will have Hats of Possibility presented. This display of more than 150 paper hats, each adorned with a handwritten childhood dream, is intended to reconnect the viewer with imagination.

Another Langley resident, Gabrielle Shallahamer incorporates keys collected from hotels around the world into a piece on understanding signs.

The opening reception for Retracing Social Practice is at 6:30 p.m. on Mar. 31. Admission to the exhibit at the Langley Centennial Museum at 9135 King St. is free.
