The gallery will be closed, but the art goes on.
Burnaby Art Gallery is getting set to close for renovations, from Jan. 14 to March 13, but its programming will continue at a number of other locations.
For families who enjoy the In the BAG studio drop-in series, Burnaby Public Library branches will be hosting the drop-ins for January and February.
At the Bob Prittie library branch (6100 Willingdon Ave., Metrotown), families can check out Burnaby Art Gallery’s off-site exhibition Cloud Art: Paper Marbling by Candace Thayer-Coe and then take part in family-friendly art projects inspired by the exhibition.
Those sessions are on Sunday, Jan. 20 from 1 to 4 p.m., for kids aged two to six with an adult, and on Sunday, Feb. 10, for children aged seven and up with an adult. The Cloud Art exhibition continues until March 24.
At the McGill library branch (4595 Albert St., North Burnaby), you can explore the exhibition How’s the Weather?, featuring works from the gallery’s collection. Then children aged four and up, with an adult, can get their hands on related art projects. Two Saturday sessions are coming up: Jan. 26 and Feb. 23, both from 1 to 4 p.m. The How’s the Weather? exhibition continues until March 25.
