Langham celebrates Regeneration

Major exhibition explores memory and a way of seeing, like a Japanese garden of contemplation.

Kaslo’s Langham Cultural Society gallery program and its Japanese Canadian museum are proud to present Regeneration, a major exhibit by Tsuneko Kokubo and Toru Fujibayashi.

They are celebrated local senior artists with extensive, fascinating and variant backgrounds, who have been part of the West Kootenay arts and culture fabric for many years.

Regeneration evokes a minimalist design and aesthetic — like a Japanese-style garden of contemplation — with its tightly bounded compositions of gravel and rocks and sparse vegetation.

Regeneration, at its heart, is a way of seeing; a study of memory and the motivations and methods with which we are able to understand lives lived. As the title suggests, these works are about life and death, but they also give us a glimpse of the doing in between.

The Langham welcomes everyone to the gala opening event on Friday, July 24 from 7 to 9 p.m.

The artists will be in attendance and there will be a short performance and spoken word presentation in the theatre, in lieu of artist talks.

The exhibition will run through Oct. 4. Gallery hours are Thursdays to Sundays, 1 to 4 p.m. The Langham thanks the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance, the Columbia Basin Trust, BC Arts Council and the Kaslo Hotel for sponsoring this event and exhibition.
