Remembering Ingeborg Raymer

Remembering Ingeborg Raymer (1922-2015)
Works from the Malaspina Printshop Archive
of The City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection

This Burnaby Art Gallery off-site exhibition is an opportunity to review and celebrate the life of one of Burnaby’s best known artists. The fourteen etchings on view here were created by Ingeborg Rayner at the Malaspina Printshop in the late 1970s. Many of these prints were made when the Printshop was still located at Mathers House in Burnaby’s Deer Lake Park. The later works were made at Malaspina’s Pender Street location.

Ingeborg Raymer taught in Burnaby schools, the Shadbolt Art Centre, and gave private lessons at her home studio on Government Road. She was a founding member of the Burnaby Artists Guild, an early member and supporter of Suite E Life Drawing in Coquitlam, and Basic Inquiry Life Drawing on Main Street, Vancouver. A regular exhibitor with the Artists’ Guild, Raymer also showed work in Calgary, London (Ontario) and Toronto as well as Chicago (Illinois), New Jersey, Washington D.C., Scotland and Hong Kong.

An appreciation of Raymer’s life and work by local arts writer Annie Boulanger is posted on the Burnaby Art Gallery website. This article was commissioned by the Burnaby Art Gallery as part of this offsite exhibition.
