TWU Art Entrepreneurs Take On the Fort Gallery

For an intrepid group of student artists, the New Year promises their first taste of entrepreneurship. A group of ten senior Art + Design majors from TWU’s School of the Arts, Media and Culture have designed a juried painting exhibition called Continuum, opening at the Fort Gallery on January 25.

The paintings have been juried by SAMC Associate Professor Doris Auxier, together with the students. Auxier is no stranger to the Fort Gallery, exhibiting there most recently as part of Trace Elements last month. With her guidance, the students have handled the entire project as freelance artists – fronting the costs, attending to every last detail of how their work is displayed in the space, and sharing profits with the gallery from any sales of their artwork.

For many of the students, this initiative is their first foray into professional exhibition. “This experience has been invaluable,” says Katrina Grabowski, a fourth-year student who has led her Senior Studio peers in launching this show. “Not only does it give each of us a professional credit, it’s taught me so much about working in partnership with an actual gallery. Working with a pre-existing space and then tailoring every element of the show to flourish in it – it’s a fascinating new experience for me, and I’m loving every minute of it!”

Featured artists include Melissa Alvaro, Chapman Chan, Chelsea Davidson, Rachel Dyck, Elizabeth Ellis, Katrina Grabowski, Braden Jones, Laura Klassen, Lisa Nickel, and Rebecca Sellers. Continuum runs January 25 to February 12 at the Fort Gallery, 9048 Glover Road, Fort Langley.

Opening reception January 27 at 7pm. For more information, visit www.fortgallery.ca. Find the latest SAMC news and events at www.twu.ca/samc.
