Look This Way featured a selection of works by Canadian artists from the Artists for Kids Collection at the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art, North Vancouver. The innovative Artists for Kids Program and Collection was established in 1989 through a generous partnership between some of Canada’s finest artists and the North Vancouver School District. Its mission is to build an art education legacy for the children of British Columbia supported by art acquisitions financed through the sale of original prints created by its Artist Patrons. Today the collection numbers over 500 works.
Artists: B. C. Binning, Ed Burtynsky, Douglas Coupland, Rodney Graham, Angela Grossmann, E. J. Hughes, Victoria Mamnguqsualuk, Bill Reid, Jack Shadbolt, Gordon Smith, Takao Tanabe, Robert Young.
We thank the Gordon and Marion Smith Foundation for Young Artists, the body that manages and curates the Artists for Kids Collection at the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art and funds exhibitions and public programs, for their partnership to make this exhibition happen. The vision of the Smith Foundation is to “ignite community engagement through exceptional Canadian art curation and education,” and the AGE was thrilled to partner with them to work toward this worthwhile goal.
