Two Views

Where Vancouver - - Art Galleries - En­tan­gled: Two Views on Con­tem­po­rary Cana­dian Paint­ing

See works by mod­ern masters, in­clud­ing “do­ers” such as John Kis­sick and San­dra Meigs, and “thinkers” like Ron Ter­ada and Jeremy Hof (“Flu­o­res­cent Ring on Pur­ple,” pic­tured). Not two of a kind, but cer­tainly twice as nice.
