Vancouver’s Brill Trolley Coaches Interpreted

Filed under: Announcement — Rick @ 9:35 pm
Something a bit different this weekend…
An exhibit of art photographs of Vancouver’s transit system opens for two days (Oct 15/16) at the Eastwood Onley Gallery at 2075 Alberta St. (at West 5th Ave., 2 blocks east of the Canada Line Olympic Village Stn), Vancouver. Hours are from 12:00 to 17:00. The artist, Andrew Firestone, studied the transit system and its vehicles extensively before creating his works. CC&F Brill trolley coaches are well-represented in the exhibition.
Unfortunately, the exhibition was a disappointment to this writer. The gallery is small and only a fraction of the on-line works were displayed. However, the works themselves are attractive and colourful. The artist has successfully combined small transit elements – logos, tokens, signs – with exterior and interior photographs of transit vehicles. The resulting montages are well-balanced and pleasing to the eye. The exhibit is worth a visit if you are in the neighbourhood.
