    The Sylvia Hotel is a great place. Granville Island is also a great place and that's where my old alma mater, Emily Carr College, is located. There is a photo exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery of an old friend of mine, a fellow named Fred Hertzog that I want to check out some time.

    Close to the the Westminster Quay is a photography gallery called Presentation House. I wonder what is showing there right now?
    I agree about the Sylvia, although its greatest attribute is certainly the location.

    Kate:

    Presentation House is over on the North Shore, near the Lonsdale Quay. I'll see if I can find out what is showing there.

    I too want to see the Fred Hertzog exhibit - and anyone new to the area probably should as well, because it may give a better sense of where Vancouver is coming from than just about anything else.

    Hi all, I checked out Fred Herzog's solo at the VAG last night, and I can say that you won't be disappointed by this massive retrospective. There's images from the 50's on through to the present. He notes a deep influence from Walker Evans, and it can be seen in many of the images. Beautiful stuff. Chapters books is carrying the publication of the exhibit. Also worth seeing, is the other photo show on the main floor "Acting the Part" a history of staged photography. They've got a great variety of images going back to the mid 1800's, and more contemporary i.e. E. Weston (Civilian Defense),... Duane Michaels, Les Krims, through to G. Crewdson and a number of other current image makers. Tuesday nights from 5-9 p.m. it's by donation!

    There is also an art gallery on Granville street that is currently having a Fred Herzog exhibit. Err....Granville & 7th, me thinks...between 8th & 7th, on the west side.

    It's the Equinox Gallery at 2321 Granville Street. It's on until March 10th.

    Paddy: Thanks for the update on Fred's exhibit at the VAG. I will get over to see it. It might not be on the 2nd but maybe the week after.

    Yes, that's it. Thank you. I drive by there everyday, but I did not know the name.

    "It's the Equinox Gallery at 2321 Granville Street."

    I'm fairly certain that the Equinox represents Fred Herzog.

    FYI - The bulk of Fred's work for the VAG show, specifically the high-end giclée's (not the lightjets) were printed by Fidelis http://www.fidelisprintmaking.com/ . Fidelis is basically the sister & brother team of Karen & Alan Somerville. For many years their dad owned and operated one of Vancouver's pro film labs, Gamma Pro Imaging. They're very nice folks who are offering an excellent product/service. They might be the only pro-level printers of large scale hex-tone B&W giclée's in Vancouver.

    Have a great weekend everyone, and I'm looking forward to meeting some of our "Westcoast Ape Huggers" sooner than later.

    Ok here is the plan.
    John (thebanana) needs to make the evening ferry to the island so he'll only be around until 5:00 or 6:00pm. The plan is...
    • to meet at about 10:00 am on Friday, 2 March at the Sylvia Hotel (Click the link for directions).
    • Have a cup o coffee/tea etc. hang out for about an hour and
    • If the weather allows walk around and shoot pictures or
    • otherwise we may just coffee house/restaurant/bar hop


    I'll have my cell phone with me if you want can't make it by ~11:00am at the Sylvia, but want to find us. PM me for the number.

    Cheers,

    jdc
