Nick Gregson and Jeff Cheung of Optical Illusion Museum: Gregson, the artist, has some of the largest street art murals in Burnaby, and he has created a new work at Deer Lake Gallery especially for Luminescence. Cheung, the “ideas man,” is working towards opening a stand-alone gallery of “optical illusion art” in Vancouver. They’ll be speaking on Saturday, March 25 at 2 p.m.


Monica Gewurz: Gewurz’ art is a blend of representational and semi-abstract composition.  Her paintings are inspired by nature’s wonders and by designs from ancient civilization emphasizing light, colour, form and texture.  Using thick layers of materials to build an almost 3-D effect, she creates complex surface and depth in her paintings. She’ll be speaking Saturday, April 1 at 2 p.m.



Chris Taylor: Chris Taylor will be demonstrating how to make, find, repurpose and scavenge things that help produce painted surfaces that are new, exciting and, most importantly, have the appearance of spontaneity or effortlessness. Taylor will be speaking on Saturday, April 8 at 2 p.m.
