Volunteers are an invaluable commodity in the not-for-profit world. They have passion for the charity’s mission and selflessly share their experience, expertise and time to drive the mission forward. At Emily Carr, Connie Sabo ('03) is a leader and driver in Emily Carr’s expanding list of volunteers.
POLYPHONICS refers to the harmony of two or more textures in a melodious composition. This exhibit is to explore harmony between colours or chords. Unless working with light, artists work in a subtractive colour model to achieve these distinct ideas. Explorations are of colour harmonies such as cool, warm, complementary, analogous, monochromatic, or triadic, to create a whole concept. Works presented are largely involving multimedia imagery whether mimicking, projecting, or displaying.
This exhibition will show projects of emerging local artists in a variety of formats including media, installation, and painting.
