Chester Fields 2018: Bring To Light

Chester Fields is The Polygon Gallery's youth photography program, engaging high school students from around the Lower Mainland. Inspired by The Polygon Gallery's inaugural exhibition N. Vancouver, this year's theme challenged emerging artists to uncover a fascinating transformation that had taken place in their communities, and to visually represent their discovery in a creative way.

A jury consisting of Associate Director of Artspeak Gallery Erik Hood, Fotofilmic co-founder and director Virginie Lamarche, and VIVA Award-winning artist Kelly Lycan met to review over 100 submissions. The 28 finalists of the 2018 Chester Fields Program are featured in an exhibition at The Polygon Gallery from May 8 until June 10.
