ALEXANDER HARRISON GALLERIES

Alexander Harrison and his son Chris ran the Harrison Galleries for sixty years, one of the longest gallery operating periods in Vancouver history. In the 1990s I dated one of his store managers, and attended a number of gallery openings. These were always well attended and well catered. The artists listed below are referenced from 17 exhibition invitations that I collected at the time. The invitations are all well printed in colour, and typically include a brief biographical summary of the artist and their work. These are only a small sample of the artists who exhibited at Harrison Galleries (WV indicates exhibitions in West Vancouver).
