Not The Dao
by Shayla Perreault
Exhibition: Sept 3 – Sept 30
Special Opening: Sept 12, 2015 from 7-10pm
RSVP to Operations@vancouverchinesegarden.com
We are proud to present one of our own. Our multi-talented colleague, Shayla Perreault, operations manager by day and visual artist by night, shows her true colours in the upcoming “Not The Dao” exhibition. The title is inspired by the quote: “The Dao that can be explained is not the Dao.” While there are some Daoist ideas reflected in her paintings, Shayla says her oil on canvas abstract landscapes with the mysterious dots and clear delineation between ‘upper’ and ‘lower’ are inspired by concepts of contrast, transformation and gentle destruction to birth something new.
Teaming up with Ian Widgery, world renowned and Time Magazine profiled music producer and DJ, Shayla invites all to come to the Garden on September 12th from 7–10pm and participate in the “Day to Night” special event/opening.
Both artists will perform live: Shayla painting and Ian spinning. Come dressed expressing your creativity!
