Local artists Phil Dyer and Nasser Ghaderi will have their art displayed through February at the Kariton Art Gallery, the Abbotsford Arts Council has announced.

The show is called "Dual Visions” and will feature a collection of photo art by Phil Dyer and a separate collection of abstract acrylic paintings by Nasser Ghaderi.

The show will run from February 8 to March 5 at the Kariton Art Gallery, located in Mill Lake Park at 2387 Ware Street. The gallery’s hours are Tuesday to Friday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday to Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Dyer’s contribution  includes digitally-manipulated images of water drops, all of which were taken at his kitchen counter using coloured art paper under and behind a water dish. The rest of his collection consists of two series: the “dual wave series,” depicting the flowing lines of a wave as it breaks on shore, and the “umbrella series,” featuring images that are indicative of water but do not actually include it.

Ghaderi creates abstract paintings by throwing, splashing, drizzling, dripping and swirling acrylic paint on canvas, abstaining from using conventional tools and techniques.  His paintings invite viewers to actively create their own meanings, turning the viewer into the creator.

The artists will be present at an opening reception on Sunday, February 10, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. For additional information, please contact the Abbotsford Arts Council by phone at (604) 852-9358, by email at abbotsfordartscouncil@gmail.com, or visit our website at abbotsfordartscouncil.org.
