Angeline Simon explores some of her favourite Lethbridge locations in her Passage Gallery exhibit “ gently passing by.”
“ There are photos I bought from the Galt Museum. I wanted to feature some of the places in Lethbridge that are special to me,” said Katie Bruce.
They’re all locations from 1890 to the 1950s,” she said.

 She manipulated some of the images to make them appear three dimensional.
 There are two big exhibits  in the main gallery.

 David Hoffos, who is known for larger, three dimensional installations and sculptures, many of which are on display at the Owl Acoustic lounge, narrows his focus to photos in “Anamorphic Arrays and Other  Variations.”
“This exhibit is two dimensional. He’s scanned mostly old advertising material, cut them up, scanned them, cut them up and scanned them again,” described Casa curator Darcy Logan.

Katie Bruce manipulated old letters for her exhibit “unsaid/unseen” in the other half of the main gallery.


“ I wrote letters on both sides  of  a piece of paper and folded them up together so you can’t really read what they say,” Bruce said.
“ There were never meant to be sent. Some are confessional and some are confrontational,“ she continued.

“ The intention is the texts were never meant to be read. I wrote them to two specific individuals. I discovered  it was important to let these feelings go,” she added.

The other exhibits are Gene Brack’s Paintings in the concourse showcase, Anneli Janssens ’“through These Doors” in the  concourse gallery.
 The opening reception is 7-9 p.m. The exhibits run until Feb. 16.

 Also opening tonight, Courtney Faulkner features her new exhibit relief/release at Street legal Records.
 The opening  reception for that exhibition is  also 7-9 p.m. with music by Jess Tollestrup at 8 p.m.
