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.

Distillations: Lithographs and Etchings by Catherine M. Stewart September 20-November 16, 2016
McGill Library

With this exhibition, the Burnaby Art Gallery continues its exploration of the Malaspina Printshop Archive. Other exhibitions in the series have included Diana Kemble’s Birdsongs, Marty Levenson’s Then and Now and the group show Matrix: Perspectives from the Malaspina Archive (1979-1982) recently on view at Bob Prittie Library.

Catherine Stewart’s Distillations differs from these other exhibits in that the artist herself has chosen the works to be displayed from both the Malaspina Archive and her own collection.

Stewart writes, "My early studies in science have been a major influence in my work. This selection of prints concentrates/distills the underlying themes of motion and change that have continued to resurface in my art practice over time."
