New exhibit in Abbotsford explores progress of modernization

‘Evolution/Devolution?’ opens Saturday, April 6 at Kariton Art Gallery

An opening reception takes place this Saturday, April 6 for a new exhibition at the Kariton Art Gallery (2387 Ware St.).

The Abbotsford Arts Council hosts the exhibit “Evolution/Devolution?” by local artists – and husband and wife – Ted Yudelson and Julia Rohan.

The opening reception runs from 6 to 8 p.m. at the gallery. Light refreshments will be provided.

The multi-media exhibition of sculptural pieces exploring the progress of modernization will be on display until April 30.

Yudelson and Rohan present their unique three-dimensional take on two impactful periods of human history – the Victorian Age and the Industrial revolution, and the Computer Age and the Digital Revolution.

“In a 100-year span, the world has experienced massive changes due to technological advances. Many of these have transformed the way we live, work, and relate to the natural world,” the couple say.

Kariton Art Gallery is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit abbotsfordartscouncil.com for more information or call 604-852-9358.
