"David Smalley Memorial Exhibition," Lyman Allyn Art Museum
This retrospective exhibit featuring the works of the late local sculptor David Smalley gave an in-depth look into the legacy of this former Connecticut College art professor. His works, which are kinetic (moving), were fascinating, hypnotic and a step away from the static forms typically seen in sculpture — highlighting the innovation that is possible within the art form.

Making a trip to East Haddam's I-Park was an unexpected escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Located in the forests bordering Devil's Hopyard, the park boasts miles of winding woods' paths and walkways, interspersed with the works left behind from former resident artists. It seems as if each piece beckons viewers to contemplate their messages, often a commentary on the delicacy of the surrounding environment. Unfortunately, the park is only open on specified days throughout the year, but that makes those r..

The vague menace of Vladimir Putin has haunted American politics for nearly two years. But in eastern Europe, Russia’s authoritarian president has wielded his influence for far longer and with a very tangible impact. The former Soviet state of Ukraine, in particular, has felt the force of Putin’s power.
In March 2014, Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula after a revolution in Ukraine toppled its Kremlin-backed president, Viktor Yanukovych. (The territory is now claimed by both Ukraine and Russia.) Russian troops invaded parts of southern Ukraine after the annexation, and Kremlin-backed hackers have launched cyberwar campaigns to disrupt Ukraine’s government and public utilities.
Naturally, Russia’s invasion, the ongoing conflict and the man responsible for both have incited responses from politicians and observers around the world. But perhaps one of the most potent reactions is a set of large-scale works by Ukrainian artists and activists Daria Marchenko and Daniel Green.

From Dec. 8 to 28, eight of Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Fine Arts students and graduates hosted an exhibition entitled EIGHT x EIGHT which featured their artwork chosen through an independent jury process. Students and alumni sent their work to three KPU Fine Arts professors, who chose which pieces should be exhibited at the Glam Gallery throughout the month of December, based on various criteria such as quality and balanced representation.
The initiative was spearheaded by Kenneth Yuen, a Fine Arts student currently in his fourth year at KPU. Yuen, who is also the president of the KPU Fine Arts Collective, feels that “there is an under-recognition of KPU’s Fine Arts Department in the local community.”
In the past, KPU students have had exhibitions in spaces such as the Newton Cultural Centre and the Surrey Art Gallery, but according to Yuen, there haven’t been many opportunities to showcase their work in Vancouver, which he calls the “centre” of the Lower Mainland’s art communit..
