Tuesday Night at the Vancouver Art Gallery (entry by donation)

The Gallery is open late on Tuesday and you can pay whatever you like! All four floors of the gallery will be open, with the following featured exhibits:

-Lawren Harris, Canadian Visionary -A Terrible Beauty, Edward Burtynsky -Scorned: Emily Carr

If you haven't had a chance to see Burtynsky's previous collections such as Manufactured Landscapes or Water, this is a great chance to see a mini retropsective of one of the great Canadian photographic artists.

The Lawren Harris collection is really stunning, and he is one of the founding members of the Group of Seven. Presented 'in dialogue' with the Burtynsky exhibit, the Emily Carr selections are a provocative contrast and consist of paintings which were not included in the previous 'Deep Forest' exhibit. We will be meeting at the Gallery Cafe (entrance via the stairs next to the admissions desk in the Gallery lobby) at 7PM. Afterwards we will be socializing with food and drink at the Purple Olive Grill (850 Thurlow St).

I will also be organizing a meetup for the FUSE party at the Gallery on April 25th, when the gallery is open until the wee hours complete with live performances, a dance floor and adult beverages!

    Thanks to everyone for coming! For those of you who didn't make it, that's cool since this is a very informal meetup. But you totally missed out on a good time and good people.

    Parking?
    I'm new to Vancouver. Is there a free parking in the area?

    April 1, 2014

    • ROGER E (aka "Minion R.

      Free parking downtown is... let's just say, difficult to find. You'll probably be paying.

    Hey guys, the meetup is getting to the limit of what I think is comfortable. Unfortunately I don't have admin privileges so I can't limit the number of attendees. Of course there will be no-shows but I would please ask that nobody else sign up now that there are 22 people.

    Hey all, could I please get a sense of how many people would like to come out to the restaurant after?

    • ROGER E (aka "Minion R.

      I might be in, depending on how late this is - I do have to work early Wednesday morning, though.

      March 31, 2014

  • Oliver

    I should be in the Gallery Cafe early at around 6PM (to get there, enter the Gallery - you will be in the lobby. There are stairs next to the admission desk and across from the coat check that will lead you to the Cafe. Note that the Cafe is not in the actual gallery space.). So if you get there early please come find me! Just before 7:00 PM we will gather in the lobby and then enter the actual gallery space together. My number is[masked] if you are running late or need to find us.

    Please check that this is still "by donation". I was there about 3 weeks ago and understood that the Tuesday night "donation" was going to end shortly. What I saw, then, was very disappointing, mainly the (sad, imo) works of Emily Carr. There were two or three pieces that weren't depressing, though. In any event, everybody have a great time. -Rob. Zeeee
