Art lovers in Burnaby can visit the Burnaby Art Gallery again – but only by appointment.
The gallery is currently showing Brad McMurray: Pedestrian, running until Aug. 23.
A gallery write-up notes the show focuses on the “idiosyncratic structures and designs of the urban and peri-urban environment.”
“Looking at Burnaby and beyond, this exhibition explores the complexities of the built environment and our navigation within it, drawing upon a long lineage of photographers working in the ‘New Topographics’ tradition,” the write-up says.
McMurray is a Burnaby- and Okanagan-based artist whose work has been exhibited at numerous galleries, including recently at the Vernon Public Art Gallery and the Penticton Art Gallery. His work is held in private and public collections including the City of Burnaby’s permanent art collection.
The exhibition also features a silent auction of framed artwork by McMurray. Bids are accepted by phone or at the gallery front desk.
To view the exhibition, make an appointment by calling 604-297-4422. Appointments are available during opening hours: Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (The gallery isn’t open weekends, Mondays or statutory holidays.)
The gallery’s website outlines a number of COVID-19 safety protocols that are now in place, including signage and reduced capacity to allow for physical distancing. Face masks are recommended, and anyone who is sick is asked to stay home.
The gallery is at 6344 Deer Lake Ave. For full details, check out www.burnabyartgallery.ca.
