Fred Herzog, Rodney Graham, Jeff Wall….Don’t miss this rare opportunity

Selected Works from the Gordon & Marion Smith Collection

Exhibiting at the West Vancouver Museum

June 9-August 27, 2011

Opening reception on June 8, 2011, 7pm-9pm

The lives of Gordon Smith, and his late wife Marion, were defined by art. Both his own rich and varied artistic practice in which Marion was always his first and most important critic but also by the great love of looking that they both shared. Over a long lifetime they have both collected and donated works of art by many other artists.  Their outlook was always that of visual explorers and Gordon remains that as he continues to collect today.

The selection of work included in this exhibition is a small sampling of the rich visual banquet that animates the Smith residence.
