Imprint Juried Exhibition


The Fort Gallery’s 2019 juried exhibition contemplates the imprinted mark and its conceptual significance. The word imprint conjures up many meanings: from printmaking, the process of creating an image from a matrix; from biology, the process of interpreting DNA into protein, the imprinting of parents on their young or our ecological footprint. The process of imprinting is everywhere; everything we touch and every place we go, we leave a trace of ourselves; everything we do leaves a mark, a consequence.

46 submitted pieces exploring this theme were reviewed; 12 artworks were selected. The included artists are: Emily Arnett, Janice Beaudoin, W. Bennett Brown, Olivia de Fleuriot Perry, Susan Germain, Erica Grimm, Jenny Hawkinson, Sunette Holmes Louw, David Martinello, Adrienne Moore, Vicky Paradice and Kara Wightman.

Imprint runs April 1-28, 2019. Please join us for the opening reception, Friday, April 5th, 7-9pm. Many of the artists will be in attendance and will be giving short talks on their work. The gallery will also be hosting a 4th Friday writer’s event with Fort Langley poet Susan McCaslin in conjunction with the exhibit’s closing reception on April 26th, 7-9pm.

The Fort Gallery wishes to thank the Township of Langley and Metro Vancouver for sponsorship of Imprint.
