"Rocks Below Our House on Pt. Grey Road"
Irene Hoffar Reid, "Rocks Below Our House on Pt. Grey Road," 1933.
Melancholy Bay: Images of English Bay, Burrard Inlet and Howe Sound from the Collection features works drawn from the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery’s permanent collection and archive; some of them are recent acquisitions and some have resided in the collection for a number of years. The value of public collections such as the Belkin’s is that exhibitions can be conceived that propose new and different understandings of the works within thematic narratives that tell stories about contemporary art, and life, in this part of the world. This exhibition is made possible with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts. We gratefully acknowledge the Canada Council Acquisitions Assistance program, the Morris and Helen Belkin Foundation, our Belkin Curator’s Forum members and our individual donors who financially support our acquisitions and donate artworks to the collection.
