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.

Hot Wheels: Depictions of Cars from the Collection

John Ward

Hot Wheels: Depictions of Cars from The City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection
September 19- November 27, 2017
McGill Library | 4595 Albert Street

This exhibition, drawn entirely from The City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection, features artworks depicting cars in various media. Glen Howarth’s Ghost Car is one of the few paintings that are part of the Collection. The other works are all print media ranging from Barry Kootchin’s linocut to works by Julie McIntyre. Julie’s prints, part of a larger group entitled, Road Stories, are comprised of 16 layers of relief print, lithography, drawing and etching. 

With the exception of John Ward, all of the artists in this show have a connection to British Columbia. Petra Mueller’s lithograph was made at the Malaspina Printshop; Steve Nelson’s at Prior Editions with the master lithographer, Torrie Groening, and James Mah’s Rush Hour was made at his home studio in Burnaby. 

Hot Wheels will be on display at McGill Library from September 19-November 27, 2017.
