Shift at the gallery

Shift features the art of Cindy Marshall and Roja Aslani at the Lake Country Art Gallery.

This summer the Lake Country Art Gallery is going in a new direction.

Featuring the art of Lake Country artist Cindy Marshall and Kelowna’s Roja Aslani, the summer show, Shift, is meant to shift your point of view about language, culture and how the two interact to create new trends and directions in everyday life.

Shift is an exhibition exploring words and culture—light as the air of talk yet weighty in discovering how words shape the world we live in. Shift offers the chance to meet and interact with artists in a new way, through the impact of language.

What does this mean? Get ready to talk, to think about words and how what we say changes us and the world around us in profound ways. Thinking of the shift between ancient Egyptian tablets and the electronic devices of today is just one way to consider the changes in the display and use of language in culture.

Shift will have text based and traditional art techniques mixed with contemporary methods.

Both artists will be at the show’s opening night. There is an artist walk and talk scheduled for 6:15 p.m. with the reception from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Lake Country Art Gallery.

Admission to the artist talk, opening reception and exhibition are free.
