Peaceful time in Hilda's beautiful urban garden
|Sigur Ros at Deer Lake Park on Monday May 27th|
Wednesday was gallery hopping day, we started on South Granville and soon found out that sadly enough two other galleries have closed their doors: the Winsor Gallery and the Equinox Gallery. This cannot be good for the art world, they were both representing established contemporary artists. Going to the Winsor gallery was always a must on my visits to Vancouver and always a pleasure, I've spent many afternoons there marvelling at the work of Fiona Ackerman and Gabryel Harrisson, among others. Erin Eshi was showing at the Ian Tan gallery, and as usual her kind of etheral rendering was inspired and inspiring. Then we went strolling about on Granville Island, admiring wonderfully crafted brooms, felted dolls, fused glass pieces and hand made paper. Beside the community centre, we discovered that the Children Festival also had events happening on Grandville Island. More pleasant visual surprises for us! Oh I just love Vancouver.
