Trinity Western University’s most advanced art and design students are presenting their work at a multimedia exhibit in Langley called Retracing Social Practice.

The show features a variety of work including paintings, drawings and 3D art installations, as well as two solo exhibitions by graduating honours students. All pieces explore themes related to social practices and how they affect thought, practice and perceptions of reality.

“Hats of Possibility" by Darby Arens features over 150 paper hats. Each shows a handwritten childhood dream, inviting the viewer to reconnect with his or her imagination.

Gabrielle Shallahamer presents σημείωσις/Sēmeisis, a piece on the practice of observing and interpreting signs. It incorporates keys the artist collected from hotels all over the world over a period of several years.

Presented with support from Flying Horse Design Studio, Retracing Social Practice runs from March 6 to April 30 at the Langley Centennial Museum, located at 9135 King Street in Fort Langley. Admission is free. There is an opening reception on March 8 at 6:30 p.m.
