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.

Ground Zero Printmakers: From Montreal to Victoria, Image and Connection

Ground Zero Printmakers 
Ground Zero Printmakers: 
From Montreal to Victoria, Image and Connection
May 29-July 29, 2018
Bob Prittie Library | 6100 Willingdon Ave

The Burnaby Art Gallery is pleased to present Ground Zero Printmakers: From Montreal to Victoria, Image and Connection featuring a variety of printed works by Victoria Edgarr and Alain Costaz, two of the principals of Victoria’s Ground Printmakers Society. 

Each of the artworks have been chosen by the artists themselves to represent the breadth of their abilities as printmakers and the variety of print media they have explored in their Chinatown studio. Many of the prints are autobiographical in nature.

In addition to their individual practices, Victoria and Alain have created a number of collaborative etchings they issue under the name “Chloe”. Some of these etchings are representative of time spent living in Montreal before their 1993 move to Victoria, also depicted in several of Chloe’s etchings. 

This exhibition is comprised of 42 artworks: 14 by Victoria, 15 by Alain and 14 by “Chloe”.
