Gary Sim Prints on Exhibit at Bob Prittie Library

(BURNABY, BC) – On display at the Bob Prittie Library, from September 17 to November 18, the Burnaby Art Gallery is very pleased to exhibit the linocut and vinyl cut prints of Gary Sim in this outreach exhibition: Coastal Range. The fourteen prints are the result of an early interest in printmaking revived in 2004 by illustrating for Amphora, the journal of the Alcuin Society.

An architectural technologist, art historian, writer, and illustrator, Gary Sim is an active member of the art community. He chairs the AIBC Gallery Advisory Committee, and is a member of Malaspina Printmakers Society and Federation of Canadian Artists. Living in Vancouver, where he was born, Gary pursues various interests in the art world including curating, and compiling material for his very comprehensive and ambitious ongoing publication Art & Artists in Exhibition: Vancouver 1890-1950.
