|BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS|
In 2021, work on BC ARTISTS started with the ongoing addition of information,
images, and links for the exhibition catalogues of
the B.C. Artists' and
B.C. Society of Fine Arts exhibitions from
1951 up to their final shows in 1968 and 1967 respectively.
Rather than transcribing the information as per pre-1950 exhibitions, I am
scanning and linking the catalogues as images. This is about ten times faster
than transcribing and linking all of the information.
With a large donation of early Vancouver art material and ephemera gifted by Renee Alexander,
from the collection of her parents Irene Catelle Porter
and Robert Samuel Alexander, along with a number of publications
from my own collection, I was able to add images and information to a large number of files:
As part of an ongoing series of donations from Sim Publishing to the University of Victoria
Archives & Special Collections, U.Vic. is going to "crawl" the entire BC ARTISTS
web site (as well as Sim Publishing web site) and archive it on their servers.
Physical donations to the University in the past year included:
After much work I finally finished updates and markups in the index to Greater Vancouver Art Galleries. The printout (with reduced size font) is 33 pages. 51 artist names were added to BC Artists. 537 galleries are listed (over 200 more than the 2012 list), and 1,266 exhibitions are listed (zero previously).
Information from another 32 or so Vital Statistics documents has been added.
