EXHIBITION OPENINGS: Solo exhibition of artist Bert Leveille | enLIGHTen
Bert Leveille will create site specific art installations exploring consciousness. Bert implements an full experiential component to her work, using light and sound to intensify the experience. “Streaming reflections” includes large-scale paintings which complete the stage’s transformation into an “alternate” world where the dancing figure seems to flow through light.
enLIGHTen is a group exhibition exploring how is light defined in reference to art? Some artists manipulate the elements of light through shades of colors, overlapping, and shaping, creating the illusion of light. Other artists use the idea of consciousness as a vehicle for bringing light into their art and their surroundings. The exhibition reflects the many values of LIGHT both literally and spiritually.
