Art all about perception
Two Langley artists are tackling the issue of perception in the latest exhibit at the Fort Gallery.
Trinity Western University art and design professor Edith Krause and printmaker Jo-Ann Sheen, are showcasing their work in a show called Esse est Percipi (to be is to be perceived) running through May 10.
â€œPerception is everything; it confirms and ultimately defines existence. It stirs questions about the objectivity of reality and truth, and why at a time when communications technology allows for instantaneous transmission of information, understanding is as elusive as ever,â€ the duo said, in describing their show.
The opening reception is being held this Sunday, April 26, from 2 to 5 p.m. The gallery, located at 9048 Glover Rd., is open Wednesdays through Sundays, noon to 5 p.m.
