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.
