Artists illuminate the darkness with upcoming exhibit

Salmon Arm Art Gallery is pleased to present Dark Nights White Lights, Nov. 16 to Dec. 22

Salmon Arm Art Gallery presents “Dark Nights White Lights,” an exhibition of multi-media illuminated works by 10 B.C. artists.

The exhibition opens at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16, with music and refreshments, and runs until Dec. 22, with the Artist Talk at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20.

Artists in this exhibition were asked to reflect upon the things that help people navigate the darkness, especially as northern residents where mid-winter only allows a few fleeting hours of daylight.

Digital media artists Ana Bayona and Hector C. Alzate Ramirez collaborate to explore how humans are attracted to a central fire, while Daryl Kehler, in collaboration with Eric Kutschker, invites viewers into an experiment in light pollution.

Two-dimensional artists Frieda Martin, Valerie Rogers and Tatianna O’Donnell integrate light into their works, showing ways to break through darkness, and sculptors Lori Talerico and Elizabeth Pattie consider mid-winter rituals in their stories.

Digital artist Alex Jensen offers a large-scale projection of eternal sunrises and sunsets.

Together the works will illuminate visitors in the many ways people both resist and embrace the dark.

The Dark Nights exhibition also features a special White Lights Studio Tour on Saturday, Nov. 24. This self-guided tour of 12 local studios is enlightening and interactive, and features an exclusive reception at the end of the day at the art gallery, with door prizes donated by participating artists.

Tickets are $10 and are available at the art gallery and Salmon Arm Stationery.

The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday, and open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays throughout the exhibition. Admission is by donation.
