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.

Les McKinnon: Reflecting on Headlines
June 9-July 2, 2017 | Upper Gallery
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 8, 7pm

Burnaby artist Les McKinnon riffs on newspaper headlines in this playful exhibition. During recent visits to Scotland the artist was intrigued by the bold headlines of newspapers displayed outside small stores. This series of paintings flips the headlines to typeset, obscuring and disrupting the original message. 


Opening Reception: Thursday, June 8, 7pm | Free, everyone welcome
Join us for the opening reception at the Burnaby Art Gallery. The evening will feature opening remarks, followed by a reception in the Fireside Room, with artists in attendance. Beer sponsored by Steamworks.
