Dream Location At The Presentation House GalleryFriday, January 24, 2014
As one gets older and distances between places seem to increase inversely proportional to one’s estimation of time left it is difficult to get out of the house.
It is difficult to get out of the house for a cultural event all the way across a bridge from Vancouver to North Vancouver’s premier photographic establishment, the Presentation House Gallery.
But the prospect of being able to see works by Gerhard Richter was too good to leave to the comforts of home.
I met up with my friend designer/artist Ian Bateson (who did not have to cross any bridges but merrily walk a few blocks from home) at 7:30 this Friday (I am writing this Saturday morning).
It was indeed a pleasant occasion which I think I will repeat again soon.
The neat little show also includes photo-based works by Elad Lassry, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Walker Evans, Sigmar Polke, Runa Islam and by the show’s curator, Stephen Waddell. The show will be on until March 9.
