Printmaking and makers explored at Langley museum

The evolution of printing from woodblocks to lithography is explored.

Lower Mainland printmakers are celebrated at the Langley Centennial Museum until Feb. 28, in the new exhibit Process/Expression; Prints/Impressions.

Woodblock, lithography, monotypes and more will be explored along with the challenges of the art, its evolution, and the various methods used by local artists Hannah Bennett, Darryl W. Funk, Lori Dean Dyment, Kathleen Gaitt, Edith Krause, Saskia Jetten, Milos Jones, Shinsuke Minegishi, Candice Perry Moen, Richard Tetrault, and Denise Carson Wilde.

An opening ceremony is planned for Saturday, Nov. 28 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the museum. Visitors will be able to view a number of prints and begin to understand the complexities in the process of creation.

Museum curator Jasmine Moore noted the showcase is expected to inspire visitors to appreciate the lengths printmakers go to.

“Process/Expression: Prints/Impressions investigates the different ways artists use print media to express themselves, challenging perceptions about prints,” Moore said. “And it may even inspire some new artists.”

Informative videos and educational panels are also part of the exhibit at the museum, 9135 King St. in Fort Langley.

Live classics on screen

The silver screen will feature live performances broadcast locally as Cineplex opens up its stage offerings to much-loved classics.

Check out the local Cineplex theatre for tonight’s (Nov. 26) live broadcast of Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale from Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company starring Kenneth Branagh and Judi Dench.

Dec. 3 will bring Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest from London Vaudeville Theatre with David Suchet. Jan Eyre will be shown on both Dec. 10 and Jan 23 from National Theatre Live.
