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.

Wayne Eastcott: From the Collection and Promised Gifts
July 25-September 18, 2017
McGill Library | 4595 Albert Street 

When Lower Mainland artist and art educator Wayne Eastcott packed up his archive in preparation for his recent move to Japan in 2016, he uncovered and made available a number of prints that complement previous works by him that have been part of the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection since the 1980s. 

Wayne graduated from the Vancouver School of Art in 1968. He began teaching at Capilano University in 1971 and founded the university’s much celebrated printmaking department in 1978. He has long been recognized as one of Canadian printmaking’s greatest innovators. A solo exhibition entitled The Printed Painting was held at the Burnaby Art Gallery in 1988 and featured over sixty prints in various media, including some of the work in this exhibition.
