If you re-discovered your love for the Vancouver Art Gallery (VAG) during this summer’s smash-hit, Vermeer, Rembrandt and the Golden Age of Dutch Art, you won’t want to miss the innovative, dynamic exhibits running through the rest of the year.

Vancouver Art Gallery 2009 Exhibitions

October 3, 2009 – January 3, 2010
NEXT: A Series of Artist Projects from the Pacific Rim
Vancouver-based artist Owen Kydd investigates the pictorial intersections of photography, video and film.

Scott MacFarland
Canadian artist Scott MacFarland’s photographs are digital composites that explore the environment around us and the dynamic between civilization and nature.

Is Only the Mind Allowed to Wander
Using pieces from the VAG’s own collections, this exhibition examines the way artists approach the human body and how the body shapes identity.

(Personally, I really want to see Is Only the Mind Allowed to Wander; those blue balls are hilariously satirical!)

October 17, 2009 – January 17, 2010

Expanding Horizons: Painting and Landscape Photography of American and Canadian Landscape 1860-1918 Organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, this is the first major exhibition to explore the interaction of painting and photography in Canada and the United States from the time of the U.S. Civil War through the end of World War I.

The Vancouver Art Gallery is open daily from 10am – 5pm and until 9pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Or, you can see the exhibits and enjoy a unique Friday night out in the city at VAG’s monthly adult-fun-fest, FUSE.
