 False Positive features works by Calgary artist  Barry Russell Lorne, Kelowna artist Wanda Lock and Lethbridge artists Eileen Murray and Corinne Thiessen.
“The last chance to see it is Feb. 8,” said Mortar & Brick Arts & Events co-ordinator Courtney Green.
“It’s a collection of artwork that could be considered creepy. They are very unsettling,” Green said.

 The exhibit is “an exploration of the artists’ relationship to positive and negative space, the certainty that life is uncertain and  how they come together in a journey through the human body,” according to a press release about the exhibit.

“ The exhibit name is a play on the medical term false positive,” she continued.
“ There are a variety of mediums including acrylic and oils. Corrine’s works are acrylics on newspapers,” she said adding she had wanted to get these four artists together for an exhibit as they explore similar themes of city and rural life.
 Eileen  Murray had an exhibit at Mortar & brick last year called “Slow Reflections.”
“It’s a large room and none of the artists had enough to fill it on their own, so we‘re presenting them together,” she continued.
“It’s a new year, new faces and new works,” she said.
