Art Exhibition: Transformation

Transformation – Scott Evans, Naoko Fukumaru, Conrad Sarzynick
Exhibition Dates: June 24th – August 14th, 2022
Reception + Artist Talk: Friday June 24th, 5-7PM, at the Arts Centre

Each of the artists’ work is captivated by transformation – from the physical materials employed, to the artistic and aesthetic sensibilities they are drawn to, to ideas and experiences, to details of change, to emotional metamorphosis, to mysteries of life, to social and environmental shifts, and to spiritual transformation.

Although materially distinct, their practices interact in interesting and synergistic ways, creating an interplay of aesthetics and meaning that shares common ideas and concerns.
