The sun will set this Sunday, Jan. 27 at the Burnaby Art Gallery, which means that's your last chance to see an original work by an award-winning Inuit artist.
Kenojuak Ashevak's piece - called Sun Owl - is a 1963 stone-cut on paper image of an owl, on display by donation from Diane and David Bond.
This showcase honours Ashevak - who passed away on Jan. 8 in Cape Dorset, Nunavut - and her contributions to modern Inuit art.
Her work has been featured in galleries across Canada.
The gallery is located at 6344 Deer Lake Ave.
For more information, call 604-297-4422.

LIVE THEATRE COLLIDES WITH JOURNALISM
Photojournalism and live theatre collide at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Boca del Lupo's production of Photog, 8 p.m. nightly from Jan. 30 to Feb. 2.
Named the "pick of the 2013 Push Festival," Photog offers a unique glimpse of unfamiliar territory and a different perspective of the lives of those we see daily in the news.
Using verbatim text from interviews with award-winning war photographers and international journalists, this show combines computer animation, video, and physical theatre to uncover the occupational hazards that come with documenting humanity at its worst.
Drawn from the real-life accounts of conflict photographers, Photog examines the internal conflicts many photographers experience in the difference between shooting on foreign soil and home turf; between privilege and suffering; between disconnect and belonging; between war and peace.
The performance at the Shadbolt Centre is dedicated to Tim Hetherington, a contributor to this show who was killed in April of 2011 while covering the conflict in Libya.
The Shadbolt Centre is located at 6450 Deer Lake Ave. Tickets are $32 for adults, $27 for seniors and students. For tickets or more information, call 604-205-3044.
