A collection of photography by the members of the Abbotsford Photo Arts Club. The exhibit provides a glimpse of diverse works by photographers with a wandering eye. Whether their photography focuses on portraiture, landscape, abstracts, or action, they all share a passion in the pursuit of compelling images.

From the carefully directed use of light & shadow to shape their images to the spontaneous 'lucky shots', the photographers delight in capturing moments in time. Many handle their lens with tender ardor because it gives them a voice; it gives them insight, & it gives them creative energy.

Visit the APAC show & enjoy the view with your own eyes.

Vancouver Art Gallery Presents: Douglas Coupland - Vancouver

750 Hornby St
Vancouver, British Columbia
V6Z 2H7
Websitehttp://www.vanartgallery.bc.ca
Toll-free
Phone604-662-4700

Daily from May 31, 2014 to September 1, 2014

This is the first major survey exhibition of the artist's work and will be presented from May 31 - September 1, 2014. Douglas Coupland is an artist based in Vancouver whose remarkably prolific production across a diverse range of media over the past 12 years addresses the singularity of Canadian culture, the power of language, as well as the ever-pervasive presence of technology in everyday life.

The title of the exhibition, 'everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything', refers both to Coupland's deep engagement with place and cultural identity and, simultaneously, his recognition of a growing ubiquity as access to information, images and technology becomes more readily available to the masses.
