The opening for Jeff Ladouceur’ s new collection of works, “Pearl Path,” takes place Thursday, June 14 at the Burnaby Art Gallery. This is Ladouceur’s first solo exhibit with a Canadian art museum. Described as “contemporary drawings featuring old-timey comic-inspired characters: droopy elephants, big-nosed salesmen, and bubble babies rendered with a dizzying level of detail,” the show runs until August 19.
Opening Reception: June 14, 7:00pm
Burnaby Art Gallery
6344 Deer Lake Avenue
Burnaby, British Columbia V5G 2J3
+ live music by Hot Towers (Lee Hutzulak, Brady Marks, Matt Skillings, Brady Cranfield): a beat-based synth quartet improvising with psychedelic intensity, searching for transcendence through confusion.
Free and open to the public.
