Invigorated – A Collection of New Works

January symbolizes the prospect of spring where the days gradually become lighter, and life is invigorated. It is also a New Year, a time for clean slates, fresh starts, new visions, and renewed energy. With that said, our first theme of 2022 is all about giving life to the Centre Gallery and our art practices and invigorating both with a collection of NEW works.

The Art of Black and White

See how artists express their creative visions focusing on the visual power of black, white, and everything in between. Creating in black and white encourages the artist to concentrate on composition, value, lighting, and form, and to focus on the image or subject. It can also be a powerful way to express emotion or draw importance through symbolism.
