VANCOUVER, British Columbia - April 2, 2019 - PRLog -- This is one of the first gallery shows for local visual artist, Garrett Andrew Chong in over three decades. After returning to the art world with an enthusiastic showing in the 2018 Eastside Culture Crawl, and the Eastside Cultural Centre (The Cultch), the photographer will be exhibiting in a two-person show with "The Caress and the Sting" by Vancouver conceptual artist, Clare Yow.

"Still[s]... In Sacred Places" at Britannia Art Gallery explores, captures and presents samplings of ancient civilizations around the world including Angkor Temples in Cambodia, a Shaolin Temple in China, Machu Picchu in Peru and Canyons of America, juxtapositioned with select indigenous people and icons (flowers, trunks and incense). Garrett's work explores these moments of awakening with the power of meditative prayers and are a reminder for the viewer to remain mindful in the here and now.

The complete exhibition can be seen at 89 Gore Avenue, Vancouver, BC, during the Open Studio Tours. The First Saturday of each month, select artists in Vancouver, North Vancouver and New Westminster, open their studios to the public from 12:00pm to 5:00pm.

A fourth generation Chinese-Canadian, Garrett Andrew Chong was born in Armstrong, BC, Canada, in the early 60's. Visual art became a natural form of expression for him at a young age. An honours graduate in design and photography from ECCAD'86 (Emily Carr College of Art and Design), his fine art work captures the auras, energies and "unseen light" within people, spaces and forms.

The Britannia Art Gallery is curated by Vancouver Artist, Haruko Joyce Okano. The gallery showcases the work of local artists and is located in the Adult Lounge of the Britannia Library. Gallery opening receptions, with the artist in attendance, are free and open to the public.
