LES Gallery – “Various Business” opening reception (Sat. Feb 7th)

Another artsy post for the weekend. The LES Gallery (1879 Powell Street) will be featuring the “Various Business” exhibition, an exhibition of three Canadian painters of varying styles, aesthetics and concepts. Although these local artists, Margaux Williamson (Fine Arts, Queens University), Laura Piasta (BFA, Emily Carr) and Julia Feyrer (BFA, Emily Carr) share the same medium, it is acknowledged that “through comparison we are able to measure individuality”. The opening reception will be on February 7th from 7pm to 11pm, and the exhibition runs for a month until March 7th.
.
LES Gallery is a small but growing commercial gallery in Vancouver, BC that’s proud to support and feature a roster of local and international artists. The focus of this intimate gallery is to push for new and innovative ideas with the shows it produces as well as with the artists it represents.

Vancouver Art Gallery – WACK! Coupon (expires Jan. 11, 2009)

I went to the Vancouver Art Gallery today to check out their “WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution” exhibition. In the corner of the second floor, there is this big garbage tree (excuse my lack of eloquence) that visitors are encouraged to interact with by either adding something or taking something way. I left two of my Modern Mix Vancouver business cards on that tree. Can you find them?
