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.

All is Unmentionable, Up in the Air: Eli Bornowsky

Eli Bornowsky

November 21, 2014 to January 18, 2015

Eli Bornowsky has been practicing as an artist in Vancouver over the past decade, and has accomplished an impressive and diverse body of abstract paintings. This exhibition features a number of large canvas ‘doubles’ which mirror each other with their almost-but-not-quite identical forms. A new suite of works on paper is presented, as well as a selection of works from the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection. Bornowsky explores the polyrhythmic textures of landscape, Renaissance painting, the artist’s studio, colour, Abstract Expressionism, doubles, and Cubism. Accompanying this exhibition is an artist book of the same title, published by the Burnaby Art Gallery.
