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.

Brigitta Kocsis: Universal Gravitation

Brigitta Kocsis
Brigitta Kocsis: Universal Gravitation
October 6-December 7, 2015
McGill Library

Kocsis’ recent series of works is populated by mechanical elements, fractured and recombined human forms, and colourful abstract elements. Gesturing towards technology’s intersection with the physical, material world, her new compositions are open to interpretation and based in process, allowing the viewer to drift between ambiguous shapes and forms.  

Brigitta Kocsis was born in Sarospatak, Hungary, to a Hungarian father and a Romani mother. She attended Concordia University Fine Arts in Montreal and received her BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2005. She has shown extensively in Europe, and in the past year has mounted two solo exhibitions in Alberta, as well as solo exhibitions in Hungary and Finland with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts. Brigitta Kocsis lives and works in Vancouver.
