VANCOUVER, BC.- It was the era of turning on, tuning in, and dropping out. A time of tumult and creativity. The sixties shook up politics, social mores, and culture – and ushered in an era of great creativity in Canadian painting. Opening at the Vancouver Art Gallery a new exhibition, “Lights Out! Canadian Painting from the 1960’s” celebrates the verve and energy of this decade as expressed on canvas. Featuring nearly ninety paintings, Lights Out! reflects the vibrancy of this exceptional era. On museum display from 18th February through 29th of April. Visit the
