Galleries spotlight everyday objects at openings

The sentimentality of everyday objects will be spotlighted during Red Deer’s First Fridays gallery openings for March.

The sentimentality of everyday objects will be spotlighted during Red Deer’s First Fridays gallery openings for March.

Red Deer ceramic artist Jenna Turner seeks to produce a sense of community and belonging in her Scenes from the Domestic exhibit at the Harris-Warke Gallery.

“The objects I create are like souvenirs of my memories, experiences and hopes. I want them to illicit a sense of nostalgia and strike a chord with the viewer’s own past,” said Turner.

The exhibit that runs until March 24 will have an opening reception on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the back of the Sunworks store at 4924 Ross St.

Mathematical equations inspired the Fractalus exhibit at the Kiwanis Gallery of the Red Deer Public Library. Using geometric structures and spiral shapes, Alberta artists Elyse Eliot-Los and Janice Johnson have created organic digital and mixed media images that are a visual manifestation of the abstraction of mathematics.

Johnson, of Calgary, said her interest was sparked by her love of numbers and a fascination for what can be produced digitally. Eliot-Los, of Benalto, was mesmerized by the concept after years of making mandalas, which are also based on geometrics.

The exhibit goes to April 29, but an opening reception will be held Friday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Artist Rea Vanlie will present some novel views of landscapes at The Hub on Ross Street. The opening reception for her Eccentric Embraces of Landscapes Expressed exhibit will be held on Friday from 5 to 7 p.m.

Art from the Streets presents a group exhibit at 4935 51st St. An opening reception will be held on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m.
