How do you view the world? Isloo Kyung MacLaurin's new exhibit entitled, Natural World, asks that quesiton and more.
The exhibit is currently on display at the Leigh Square Community Arts Village in PoCo.
This new set of art utilizes paint and printmaking using themes of cultural identity and expression, as well as Canadian livelihood and wildlife.
"The work is grounded in the natural world but looks beyond the scenic for ordered and chaotic patterns that embody elements of time, space and chance," states the press release. MacLaurin is attempting to impart a moment in time with each of her works depicting elements of her past, present and future.
The exhibition runs until Sept. 23. The gallery is open seven days a week except for statutory holidays and admission is free.

BEAUTY BORN OF TRAGEDY
Time is running out to catch Japanese artist Yasuo Araki's display at the Port Moody Public Library, as the exhibit will come to a close after this weekend.
Born in Yamanashi, Japan in 1939, he and his family fled in 1945 when B-29 bombers were dropping down horrendous bombs on his homeland. Now, his war-time experiences have led him to peace making efforts at a grass root level.
"For him, this means communication with people through art," the press release states. "Yasuo often uses motifs such as stars, the sun and the moon because every living thing is a part of the universe."
To see his art go to the gallery or visit yasuoaraki.com.
