BURNABY ART GALLERY
Exhibition Nov. 28 2017 - January 29, 2018
The Curator and Preparator at the Burnaby Art Gallery (BAG), Bob MacIntyre, invited me to have a
solo exhibition at the McGill Library in Burnaby, one of the out-reach galleries that the BAG
uses to help distribute their arts program around the City of Burnaby. Although I was hoping to
put up an exhbition of The Adventures of Noman, the Curator preferred to exhibit a number of large pencil
drawings for the exhibition (see below).
The McGill Library is at 4595 Albert Street in Burnaby, one block north of Hastings Street and just
east of Willingdon. The Library is open seven days a week: Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday
from 10 to 6 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

These large-format drawings were all done in the past few years, based on photographs taken during my
travels around British Columbia. The travels included climbing Mt. Waddington, flying to Haida Gwaii and
Williams Lake for field reviews, and a day long ago at Sombrio Point watching massive waves landing.
