Jan 25th, 6 to 10pm.

The MakeFashion initiative is a collaboration of great minds who want to demonstrate that the convergence of Technology and Art can result in a form, fashion and community brand new to Calgary. Creativity and innovation are the guiding principles to unit fashion, jewelry and accessories designers with software and hardware engineers. Along with technology enthusiasts, creatives and those that just simply like to engage in cultural experiments – all are invited to participate in the MakeFashion event series.

The Make Fashion Gala is the highlight of the festival, featuring innovative work by local designers.

The event will feature innovative cocktails, exciting performances and a runway show from our designers.

Surreal Opening Night

On February 8, 6 to 9pm Endeavor Arts Gallery invites you to the unveiling of Surreal, a group exhibition

of three unique artists whose work represents remarkable themes. Connect with them in person
and get deeply immersed in the stories that inspire works featured in the Exposure Festival 2013.

Innocence

Toronto based photographer Laura Paterson weaves an artful stroke with her vintage Holga
camera, capturing emotive scenes with a youthful innocence. With her unique composition
and dreamy effects, Laura’s quiet and peaceful images draw on the viewer’s experience and
perception of common scenes to tell a story.

Alchemy of Light

Also from Toront,o  Bob Carnie’s Alchemy of Light series utilizes the 19th century method of solarization,
which marries light and chemistry to transform common objects into painterly objects. Alchemy of
light began in 2003 and since then Bob’s creative distortion of tones forces the viewer’s eye and
mind to actively move between what’s real and what’s imagined.

Time

Calgary’s celebrated commercial and fine art photographer Jeff Cruz reveals Time. The collection
employs the use of long exposure photography and motion to capture the essence of time. With
varying exposure times and the movement of objects such as headlights, stars and reflected
sunrises seen in a different world.

Jan 5 – Feb 1st.

Opening Jan 18, 6:30 – 9pm.

After the holidays, is only fair to have new art for a new year. Showcasing new works by local artists Tammy Fischer, Janie Lockwood, Koos de Jongh, Nikki Gour.
