Serving the Tri-Cities for over twenty years, the Art Gallery at Evergreen engages visitors through curated exhibitions, activated by public programs and dynamic school workshops. The AGE focuses on contemporary art and ideas explored by professional artists working in all mediums. We also support young artists through our annual Emerging Talent exhibition, which features work by local high school students from School District 43. We believe that art is integral to the fabric of daily life and seek opportunities to connect people with artists and the creative process.

EXHIBITION DATES: February 29 – April 26, 2020
ARTISTS TALK & OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, February 29 | 2:00pm – 4:30pm
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
Every day, we peer into a black mirror and ask it to help us understand the world. We wake our sleeping, darkened screens and attempt to make sense of the world through pixels and bytes. We read newsfeeds, “favourite” Tweets, send emails, scroll through Instagram feeds. The devices that feed us this information are black boxes in more than just their colour and shape—their systems and processes remain opaque and largely unknowable to us, the users.
The exhibition Trace brings together artworks by Gwenessa Lam and Hyung-Min Yoon that explore the power of the black mirror in a range of its incarnations. Through multiple mediums, including artists’ books, sculpture and printmaking, Lam and Yoon consider the circulation of images and the evolution of their meaning across time, countries and platforms.
