Island Illustrators Society: Big Canadian Stuff

 Big Canadian Stuff

Island Illustrators Society
Big Canadian Stuff
Celebrating 150 Years of Canada  

November 27, 2017- January 28, 2018
Bob Prittie Library | 6100 Willingdon Ave

This exhibition features 28 posters created by various members of the Island Illustrators Society to celebrate Canada’s 2017 sesquicentennial. The posters were designed to take the viewer on a coast to coast journey visiting iconic Canadian landmarks in a lighthearted fashion. The nine artists involved in the project, all professional illustrators based on Vancouver Island, modelled the poster series on art deco and mid-century travel posters, unifying the theme in a nostalgic and ironic manner.
