Hot Weather in Store for Southwestern BC

Posted July 13, 2018

While hot and sunny conditions are welcomed news for most, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Medical Health Officers are reminding residents to take precautions to protect themselves from the heat. Keep cool by:

  • Spending time in an air-conditioned facility (such as a shopping centre, library, community centre or restaurant) for at least several hours every day.
  • Dress for the weather by wearing loose, light-weight clothing. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade or use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more
  • NEVER leave children or pets alone in a parked car.
  • Check in on others - People living alone are at high risk of severe heat related illness.

Alicia Nauta: Two nostalgias facing each other like mirrors
September 18-November 26, 2017
Bob Prittie Library | 6100 Willingdon Ave


The Burnaby Art gallery is pleased to introduce the work of Toronto artist Alicia Nauta. Environmental degradation, the crumbling of civilization, abstracted and psychedelic reality, domestic space, and human belonging are key themes that are explored in this series of prints selected by the artist for her Bob Prittie Library exhibition.

Alicia’s work is part of Alicia’s Klassic Kool Shoppe - her practice which involves collage, screenprinting, installation, wallpaper, books and zines, and a growing collection of found oddities for a future museum. Her work has been exhibited at Printed Matter (US), Kogenchecho (JP), the AGO, Katherine Mulherin, Artscape Youngplace, and Art Metropole, as well as permanent wallpaper installations in Toronto. Work by Alicia is included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art Library and the New York Public Library. 

Public Program
Join us on Saturday, October 14 at 5pm at the Vancouver Art Gallery Library where Alicia will be giving a Burnaby Art Gallery sponsored talk on her work at the upcoming Vancouver Art Book Fair
