Falk and Bond Transition Show poster
The Fort Gallery is pleased to announce its next exhibit ‘Transition’, a joint effort between the gallery’s own Richard Bond and Susan J. Falk, running August 31-September 18, 2016.
Bond’s current work with the figure is representative of his fondness in transforming form to its simplest terms by the application of vibrant colour. His use of simple lines by juxtaposing images renders an immediate separation of boundaries. He endeavours to capture the fluidity of emotion in motion inherent in the dynamic living forms, which move anyhow by nature’s design. As a result, his work achieves an abbreviated balance whereby seemingly disparate objects merge in unity, which becomes his signature.
Falk has come full circle after returning from her show at ‘Art Forum’, JARFO Museum, Kyoto City, Japan. Delighting Japanese audiences with her uniquely Canadian life size ‘Bears and Salmon’, she now incorporates her Japanese experience into expressionistic oil paintings and drawings. She shares a visual expression with her trademark colourist strokes while focusing on the kimono in modern day Kyoto, as well as blustery, windy landscapes capturing cherry blossom season.
Please join us for the opening reception of this unique exhibit, September 1st, 7-9pm, which will also be held in conjunction with the September ‘First Thursday’ free community arts event.
On the first Thursday of each month The Fort Gallery hosts a variety of visual artists, writers and poets, and musicians from the local community who share their gifts and creations. On September 1st, we welcome local harpist Bernice Mussallem.
The Fort Gallery thanks the Township of Langley for sponsorship of First Thursday community arts events.
Gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday, noon-5pm
