Richmond Art Gallery is organizing an exhibition of works by Victoria-based artist, Rick Leong and local Richmond artists. Leong is a Canadian-born, third-generation Chinese immigrant whose distinctive paintings blend traditional Chinese calligraphic and painting techniques with imagery informed by the Canadian landscape. The exhibition explores how imagery or iconography conveys particular meanings in one culture and can be transferred, re-interpreted and incorporated into other cultures.
Richmond Art Gallery invites submissions from Richmond artists who have immigrated to Canada and whose work is based on or drawn from iconography/imagery from one’s cultural traditions. All media is accepted. Mr. Leong will select the work for exhibition with the Gallery’s curator, Nan Capogna. The exhibition will open July 16 and close October 2, 2016.
Deadline for submissions January 31, 2016. Selected artists will be notified by February 29, 2016. Artists that are selected for exhibition will be paid an exhibition fee as recommended by CARFAC. (Canadian Artists Representation)
