Vancouver Art Gallery

Vancouver Art Gallery Field Trip!

The intersection of art and design is a commonly discussed topic among designers; why not take an an evening to appreciate and discuss some art.

Get your permission slips signed and meet us on the gallery steps on the Howe side of the gallery - below the cafe. We will split up to tour the gallery and regroup at 9 for a beer at the Bottleneck (870 Granville Street, below the Commodore Ballroom)

Admission on Tuesday at the VAG is by donation, but please consider the sad state of arts funding in this country.

See you Tuesday!

    I loved the exhibit of Marian Penner Bancroft at the second floor! Matisse as well! The building is very beautiful, the shop, cafe...(this is my first visit to Vancouver).

    I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet some great people already a part of a community that I am slowly becoming a part of. I rate it only 4 stars as this is the first meetup that I have attended and so have nothing really to compare it to. The group was very welcoming and conversation friendly and worthwhile. The venue for the meetup although interesting was a little busy and so initially made it difficult to really meet a lot of the members. That would be my only criticism and reason for a loss of one star. That being said I must also say that I understand why the venue was chosen for the said night and it is no fault of the organizers that the venue was so busy. all in all, a great first experience.

    Thanks to everyone who joined yesterday! It was really lovely to take in the Gallery and talk a little shop with your all. Apologies to those we lost en-route to the pub, I didn't realize we got separated.

    Great time, I would have missed this opportunity were it not for this meetup (though I should have worn Dana's red Meetup T-shirt).

    An additional bonus many of us can relate to when creating work for clients:

    I am sorry that I was not there. On my way in to Vancouver there was a situation with my children and I had to turn around. Hope everyone had a good time. I'll hopefully meetup with everyone at the next function
