The Burnaby Art Gallery is pleased to present the annual Arts Alive showcase at the historic Ceperley Mansion. "Memories of Place" marks this year’s theme and features works by elementary students in Grades Kindergarten to 7 from across Burnaby School District #41. A selection of student paintings, drawings and sculptures from each school will be on display in the main gallery. An online exhibition of all student artworks can be viewed on our flicker website.
In conjunction with Arts Alive is the Burnaby Art Gallery’s permanent collection showcase in the second-floor gallery. An integral part of all art museums, collections chronicle the history of art; development of artists’ careers and provide a resource for scholars and curators to draw from to study and create exhibitions. Focus on the Collection: Wood Engraving features a selection of wood engravings acquired by the institution over the past six decades. See works by master printmakers such as Alistair Bell, Henry Eric Bergman, Edwin Holgate, Leonard Hutchinson and Clare Leighton.
