Bentley Meeker: Immaculate Refraction

“Light is the most powerful tool we have to create any feeling.” -Bentley Meeker

The Penticton Art Gallery is proud the present, Immaculate Refraction, the first solo exhibition in Canada by the New York City-based lighting artist Bentley Meeker. For over 30 years his practice has focused on the component properties of light, contrasting light sources and frequencies to create a specific range of subtle hues which he uses to illuminate his unique sculptural reliefs. By its very nature, the work encourages visitors to pause and consider the varying possibilities of light sources as well as their potential effects on the human psyche and how light might affect our shared humanity.

Kristin Krimmel | Love & Grief

Sooner or later, we all come to love and grief.  It is a part of the human condition.  In 2013, artist Kristin Krimmel lost a close friend with whom she had shared a profound love of language and literature. She came to understand that the deepest components of friendship and its loss was simply a cycle of grief and love.  These works reflect this cycle.
