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.

Marty Levenson: Now and Then

Marty Levenson Now and Then

Marty Levenson
Now and Then
July 12-September 19, 2016
Bob Prittie Library 

This Burnaby Art Gallery Offsite exhibition was designed to complement the exhibition Matrix: Perspectives from the Malaspina Archive (1979-1982), currently on view at Bob Prittie Metrotown Library. Both exhibitions use the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection’s Malaspina Printshop Archive as a base for investigating printmaking activities in the early days of the Malaspina Printshop.

Marty Levenson’s exhibit features four coloured etchings and a mixed media composition printed at Malaspina in the early 1980s together with recently created monoprints. Most of these newer prints reference the garden maintained by Levenson’s wife, Jacquie. The three works from the series entitled History into Nature were inspired by the writings of Roland Barthes. The Malaspina Printshop Archive was gifted to the gallery by Milton and Fei Wong in 1988. Levenson’s more recent monoprints appear courtesy of the artist.

Still a member of Malaspina, Levenson now does his printing at his home studio on Bowen Island and maintains a studio in Vancouver for his registered art therapy practice.

More information about Marty’s art practice can be found at bowenislandprintmaking.com and more information on his art therapy practice can be found at vancouverarttherapy.com.
