Joselito Macapagal: Scenic Impressions
Joselito Macapagal paints in the style of Impressionists for this series; using short and bold strokes, bright vibrant colours and varying textures. He looks to capture the essence of the subject in that moment of time and convey its beauty to the viewer. Macapagal holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts, from the University of East Manila in 1977, and has participated in group painting exhibitions in various galleries in Manila prior to immigrating to Canada with his family in 1989. Recently retired from a career as a Computer Signmaker in Richmond BC, Joselito has won awards and exhibited for many years in community centres and exhibition venues in Richmond and across the Lower Mainland.

Wild Sweets® cocoArt | From cocoa bean to chocolate to art!
For this installation, Dominique & Cindy Duby partnered again with graphic artist Linda Mitsui – owner of Profile Design Group – to create cocoArt sculptures made entirely out of chocolate, weighting around 75 lbs each, and titled ‘Abstract Geometry’. Their take on the geometric sphere shape is deconstructed, and reconstructed ‘organically’ as if it had been distorted. Additionally, the installation will also include print canvases of their award-winning cocoArt photography using their everyday hand-painted chocolates as the main focus along with other food ingredients, colours and photographic techniques including lighting and perspectives resulting in visually unique compositions.
June 19 - August 26
Laara Cerman: Codex Pacificus
Laara Cerman’s work explores the intersection of art, science, history and the themes of impermanence, a return to nature and the fragility of life. Her photographs are created by capturing multiple digital images and then pieced together in post-production.
