Gallery 1710 in Tsawwassen is hosting a captivating exhibition from Sept. 29 to Oct. 22.

Changing Light brings together a diverse array of artworks exploring the ever shifting interplay of light, colour, and form. From vibrant oil paintings to delicate watercolours and captivating sculptures, this exhibition showcases the boundless imagination of artists as they interpret the transformative power of light.

A special treat on Sept. 30 at 1 p.m. will feature demonstrations from artists Rod Winning and Kate Herring.

Winning, a renowned painter known for mastery of light and shadow, will be demonstrating plein air painting with acrylics. His ability to infuse life into landscapes from the golden hues of a setting sun over a tranquil meadow to the soft interplay of light in a local farm scene is delightful. Winning’s work is a testament to the power of light in art. Herring is a talented master of fiber arts. She enhances textiles with embroidery, felting, polymer clay, fabric and found objects. She will share valuable insights on her creative process and techniques.

The Changing Light art show is not just a feast for the eyes, but also a unique opportunity for collectors and art enthusiasts to acquire one-of-a-kind pieces that reflect the ever-changing beauty of our world. Whether you are an experienced art connoisseur or a newcomer to the art scene, this exhibition promises to be a source of inspiration and wonder.

Gallery 1710, with its commitment to promoting local and regional artists, and encouraging emerging talent, welcomes you every Friday to Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

The spacious, well-lit gallery space on 56 St. beside the curling rink is the perfect venue for an exploration of art’s relationship with light, dark, and shadow. Mark your calendars and prepare to be enchanted by vivid interpretations of changing light that our artists have so brilliantly captured.
