To honour the BAG's 50th anniversary, The Ornament of a House is a showcase of selected masterworks from the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection. Curated by Ellen Van Einjsbergen and Jennifer Cane, the exhibition includes historic works by European masters Francisco Goya and Rembrandt van Rijn as well as contemporary works by top BC artists such as Torrie Groening, Susan Point, Bill Reid, Gordon Smith and Jack Shadbolt.
Accompanying the exhibition, the deluxe publication The Ornament of a House features 50 high quality reproductions of the selected works alongside 50 essays by artists, art historians, collectors and critics as well as past and present curatorial staff. The book also features a history of Ceperley House and a chronology tracking the evolution of the house and gallery.
The Ornament of a House is available for purchase at the gallery from July 13.
