2020 UPDATES: New since BC ARTISTS uploaded.

The major effort for the first four months this year was to complete transcription of the annual B.C. Artists' and B.C. Society of Fine Arts exhibitions up to 1950, and the creation or updating of all related artist biographies. After 18 years this has finally been completed, every artist on the pre-1950 list of artists now has a biography file. That was a lot of work.

Information from more than 300 BC Vital Statistics documents for births, marriages, and deaths has been added. A collection of post-1950 catalogues and publications is still being referenced, 38 have been added so far this year. Another 59 artist monographs have been listed this year as well.

The Greater Vancouver Art Galleries page has been significantly expanded to include 500+ galleries and 1,200+ exhibition listings. Cross referencing the exhibitions to the artist A - Z index and to artist biographies is in progress, and a number of "new" artists will be listed.

Other interesting recent additions are:
    The Savary Pudding artwork
    David Spencer Ltd. exhibitions & Store Topics added
    a new biography for artist, cook, and art school model Eugene Bond
    an index to the listings in the Province's 1968 DIRECTORY OF HANDICRAFTS
    additional images for the biographies of Gertrude Lawson and Maud Sherman
    some progress on naming the "Misses McClungs" (see Florence McClung)
    an INDEX OF IMAGES
