Or Gallery 30th Anniversary Art Auction and Dinner to Establish a Residency & Project Space in Vancouver

18 October 2013

Vancouver Rowing Club
450 Stanley Park Drive

Tickets: $175
Tables of 10: $1500

2013 marks the 30th anniversary of the Or Gallery. This significant milestone provides the opportunity to reflect on the Or's venerable history as a space for experimental art practices, and to bring an ambitious new project to light. The Or Gallery is raising funds to purchase a residency and studio space that will provide a flexible programming venue for talks, readings and open studios. The project reflects an early moment in the gallery's history: from 1983-1987, the gallery's Franklin Street location featured an adjoining apartment, allowing a succession of artists to live int eh space and curate exhibitions and projects. 

You can become involved. We are raising money to martch $100,000 in funds generously promised by the City of Vancouver, and the Or Gallery needs the Vancouver Public's help. Donate online here:


the Geyser for Hillcrest Park

CASV Members visited Vanessa Kwan and Erica Stocking's Hillcrest Geyser yesterday. Vanessa was on site to discuss the Geyser as well as current and future projects. We didn't manage any snaps from the day, but we have managed to show you some images of the Geyser courtesy of Vanessa Kwan's website and via

 The Geyser is the last of the 23 temporary and permanent public art pieces commissioned by the City of Vancouver as part of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic games legacy. It is located east of Hillcrest Centre on the grassy knoll at the corner of Ontario and Peveril Street. The geyser only erupts when water is needed in the grey water catchment system that is used for sanitary and irrigation needs in the Hillcrest Centre, making it par to the green initiatives of the building. 

Future studio visit coming up: Reece Terris - October 20th.
