Exhibition Reception: Saturday, April 22nd, from 12 pm – 4 pm 

Imagining Peace: Walking Labyrinths is a solo exhibition featuring work by Bruce Parsons. This exhibition which came together starting in 2012 focuses on the use of wide range of materials, mural paintings, objects, watercolour on paper, video and installation.  In the last five years he has worked around the idea of accelerated time related to communication, and the way human perceives the world in our everyday life. He has used the image of the labyrinth in the context of facing the chaos in the world at the present time.  
Parsons invites participants to be a part of the discussion that explores the notion of non-objective painting during his artist talk on Tuesday, April 18th from 7 pm – 9 pm.  RSVP on Facebook or by calling the Office
