The artists of the Fort Gallery have set aside colour for one show.
The resulting artwork — all composed in black and white — is both dramatic and elegant, and it’s on display now at the gallery on Glover Road in Fort Langley.
Although most of the artists are painters, the black and white theme extends beyond the medium.
Visitors walking into the gallery will also find wonderful examples of fused glass, pen and ink drawings, and printmaking.
“One of the members suggested the concept, and I believe that the other artists enjoyed the idea as a challenge, and rose to it,” said the gallery’s manager, Tim Fraser.
“With the painters in particular, using colour is so automatic, that putting it aside was a step outside of the comfort zone, and a great way to distill their ideas into something new.”
The exhibition, which opened on Wednesday, runs until July 7. Open to the public, the artist’s opening night reception is being held Friday, June 21, at 7 p.m. The Fort Gallery is open Wednesdays to Sundays, from noon to 5 p.m. at 9048 Glover Rd. in the centre of the Fort Langley village.
