New show opens at Kariton Art Gallery in Abbotsford

Artists Lianne Mitchell and Alex Stewart featured

The Abbotsford Arts Council opens its newest exhibit on Saturday, Nov. 25 at the Kariton Art Gallery (2387 Ware St.).

An opening reception takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. that day, and the exhibition runs until Dec. 19.

Reworked and Reassembled presents artists Lianne Mitchell and Alex Stewart, who use found objects and unexpected materials as the basis of artistic expression.

Mitchell has always been a tactile and sensitive person, and has been nurturing her creative side since childhood.

Her sculptures are assembled from objects collected during the many hours spent walking in urban and natural environments, and reflect the world at large and the issues facing our culture today.

Stewart uniquely draws from his experience in industrial and automotive painting, which has, in turn, augmented his processes and influenced his work.

Primarily working in stencil, spray paint and collage, he uses both wood and steel as his canvas.

Each piece is made with hand-cut stencils that are used a limited number of times – sometimes only once – before being destroyed.

Also at Kariton Gallery, Painting Canada 150! presents 15 creative students from the Gurmat Center who celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday by painting all 10 provinces and three territories.

Upon learning about Canada, these young artists reflect the unique culture and historical symbolism of our entire country through watercolour paintings.
