During these hot summer days, it's hard to get motivated to do anything but sit around and try to cool down. Well, I decided that enough was enough. It was time for a girl's night out. So Carolyn and I decided to get together for a girl's night out at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The Vancouver Art Gallery is by donation on Tuesday nights from 5-9pm so it's a great way to get cultured no matter what your budget is. Along our adventure, we also found out that it is a wonderful cool space that is air conditioned in every room.
The current exhibitions are "Of Heaven and Earth 100 Years of Italian Painting", this exhibit is on the main floor which usually hosts the traditional paintings. On the upper floors are the more modern exhibits which included Material Future, How Do I Fit a Ghost in My Mouth, and Wallpapers and Emily Carr. There were a lot of material art such as a book that was pulled apart and the pictures were cup up and displayed. It was amazing to see the intricate detail and appearances. The digital wallpaper was a sight with the digital wallpaper enlarged in scale and changing with the display. We are not artists so we did not sit and ponder the artwork, instead we gazed, took photos, and admired the work of others. I'm happy we went and we even made a Vancouver Art Gallery YouTube Video on the occasion.
