The Many Worlds of Jack Wise

From the Collection: The Many Worlds of Jack Wise
October 5-December 6, 2015
Bob Prittie Library (Metrotown)

This Burnaby Art Gallery Offsite Exhibition features a selection of artworks by Jack Wise reproduced in various media. All of the black and white images shown in this exhibit are from The Many Worlds of Jack Wise, a portfolio of the artist’s then recent work published by The Bau Xi Gallery in the fall of 1967. The large format of the portfolio meant that many of Jack’s works could be reproduced at their actual size. It was hoped that the publication would allow a wide audience access to Jack’s artwork at an affordable price.

In addition to the reproductions shown here, the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection includes a dozen original works by Jack Wise, many of which are too large or too delicate to show in the library. An appreciation of Jack Wise by local artist and art historian Gary Sim can be read here
