Going to B.C.? 2 art exhibits to see

Vancouver Art Gallery will open two exhibitions on June 28 that look extremely promising: “Painted Past: A History of Canadian Painting,” and “On Stage: Recent Acquisitions.” The historical show comprises three themes: Landscape, People and City, reflecting the progress of artists’ reaction to these subjects in Canadian life. In “On Stage,” “each of the artists has, in their own way, created a setting or context for their subjects, either real or imaginary,” according to VAG.  You can browse photographs and paintings by artists such as John Coplan, whose brutally close-up photos showcase the all-too-human condition of our hands, feet, knees (and other more private parts as well); the Abstract Impressionist cohort Aaron Siskind; and B.C.-born Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun, who integrates Native forms and styles with really, really trippy landscapes.
