Gallery Exhibit

The Arts Council of New Westminster aims to have exhibitions that feature a variety of visual arts by a wide range of artists from the Metro Vancouver region. The exhibition program aims to reflect both the cultural and artistic diversity of contemporary art and serve as an educational forum for New Westminster and surrounding communities. This program is open to applications from both established and emerging artists.

As a general rule, monthly exhibitions open on the first Wednesday of each month and close on the last Sunday of the month. The time between closings and openings is used for exhibition installation and, in some occurrences, for five-day pop-up exhibitions.

Samantha Harrison  – “Recreations of Myth & Spirit” 

Exhibition Dates: Sept.7 – 25th, 2022

Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 10:00am – 2:00pm

EXHIBITION STATEMENT

These eight oil paintings are part of an ongoing series, titled Recreations of Myth and Spirit. This series seeks to recreate figures of mythological and religious origin as modern people. In creating each painting the objective is to match each model to different figures based on a moment of perceived similarity, while also deliberately mismatching the models in other aspects of their visual characteristics, such as their perceived racial identity, or biological sex. In doing this an attempt is made to draw focus upon the idea that mythological and spiritual figures are deeply connected to – and inspired by – various aspects of the human condition, even the mundane. These paintings serve as both recreations and re-creations – that is, they represent both newer interpretations of older stories, just as much as they represent a kind of play-acting between friends, through which each model searches for themselves within the character that has been given to them. With this the viewer is hopefully encouraged to identify with these figures – as well as with the individuals acting as them – and by extension, engage with the stories surrounding them without feelings of exclusion.

ARTIST BIO

Samantha Harrison is a recent graduate of Emily Carr University of Art + Design, with a BFA majoring in painting. Her work consists primarily of oil paintings featuring traditional still-lives, or the human figure, painted in a Classical Realist, or Photorealist style. She is inspired by the concept of perfection, and its correlations with definitions of goodness and virtue, however controversial these correlations may sometimes be. Painting for her is about translation. The translation of images through the filter of sight and mind, and the ultimately imperfect recording that is obtained in a painting, regardless of any diligent attempt to transcribe the images accurately. These minor deviations from the truth of sight hint at the limitation of human ability, aiming to make the viewer wonder exactly what it means to pursue a perfect image, and by extension to seek to define goodness and correctness – despite our obvious shortcomings and inability to be free of moral contradiction. Pursuing and expanding on these ideas in her work is something she is continually working toward, in both style and subject matter.

TRASH by Jeongmin Ahn

Exhibition Dates: Aug. 3rd – 28th, 2022
Gallery Hours: Wed – Sun, 10 am – 2 pm

Free Admission

Exhibition Statement

These paintings are meant to promote thoughts of consumerism and consumerism’s relationship to the ecosystem. In painting these objects I also inevitably portray the potential beauty that can be found even in things often regarded to be without value, such as used and disposed of objects. Hyperrealistic paintings require an obsessive attention to detail, and in giving this attention to an object rendered in this style, the objects will arguably be beautified in a way that suggests value. Consumerism corrupts human perception of value.

Humans have created materials, such as plastic, that allow us to have a convenient and comfortable life. Modern society is relying heavily on these materials and there are consequences to this reliance. However, people are blinded by their desire for convenience. Annually the consumption of these materials has increased. Trash is not an object that people have second thoughts about, or look carefully at. As I paint hyperrealistic paintings of trash I allow viewers to look more carefully at the objects. Hyperrealistic paintings require large amounts of time to render, and the great care and detail put into this work conflicts with the notion of the object’s disposability and lack of value. 

Artist Biography

Jeong Min Ahn is an emerging Korean hyperrealist painter, based in Vancouver BC, the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, the Sḵwxwú7mesh ̱(Squamish), Stó:lō and Səlí\lwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. He graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2020, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. He has trained professionally with hyperrealist artists in Korea, such as Jeong-Hae Kwang. His recent exhibitions include AIRE 2021, and AIRE 2020, at the Canadian federation Art Gallery, ArtRich 2019, of Richmond Art Gallery, and he was the recipient of the 2019 Richard Alm Scholar Award from the Federation of Canadian Artists. He plans to pursue a Masters Degree in Fine Arts in the years to come.

Sherida Charles – “Transits & Reveries” 

Exhibition Dates: July 1st – 31st, 2022

Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 10:00am – 2:00pm

Free Admission

Exhibition Statement

My recent mixed media works and acrylic on canvas paintings revolve around the realities of living and moving through an urban space. A space filled with signs, bold colour and shapes, and fleeting glimpses of incongruous imagery. There are short stints on transit and passing glances at street scenes, neon, plant displays in storefronts, leaf shapes in gardens, and the layered effect of multiple impressions in rapid succession.

The scenes on transit are reflective of quick sketches to capture compositions, with the linear, primary coloured compositions recalling Mondrian for me. Depending on the daylight hour aboard the train, the shadows shift and create strong shapes. The scene and occupants constantly change in an endlessly varied, multicultural diorama. The environment of the train and buses also serves as a common denominator of humanity and represents the essence of our urban population. The colours and lines and shapes also represent an increasing concern I have with simplification and abstraction.  

Artist Biography

I was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1964, and emigrated to Canada in 1976, settling in New Westminster. I attended high school in Burnaby and studied Fine Arts at the University of British Columbia. During my 20’s, I practiced as a painter, won a year of post-grad study at the Banff Centre, and was awarded a Canada Council grant in 1988 to take my paintings to Jamaica for an exhibit. Later, I decided to pursue Art Education to secure regular employment in Canada, attaining my B. Ed Degree in 1991. I have been teaching Art at the Secondary level in the Coquitlam School District since 1992, and recently left teaching to focus on my own art practice. I live in the west end of New Westminster with my husband and sons. In 2019 I joined a Studio Residency in Vancouver called Printermedia, an extension of Malaspina Printmakers, where I am able to focus on printmaking with facilities and equipment, as well as other collaborative artists. Here I have been able to immerse myself in developing and practicing my skills with multicolour reduction linocuts, and also continue exploring silkscreen processes and mixed media painting in traditional and experimental works.
