The Retro Show
@ Retro Prices
Last year was not only successful, but such darn fun! So, we are doing it again -- six artists and tonnes of great art at good retro prices. How can you beat that? This event is meant to bring out of storage older pieces that are no longer a part of current exhibitions. This is your chance to purchase an earlier piece of some emerging, up-and-coming, and established artists.
Ok, so if that isn't enough to get you down to Gastown on the 15th and 16th of October, in addition the artists will offer a gift basket (on display at The Retro Show at Retro Prices) full of art and art objects to be given to one lucky visitor. For your chance to win, all you have to do is come down on the 15th or 16th and drop your name in the hat. We will draw the lucky winner on Oct 16th at 5 pm. So don't miss out on great art, unbeatable prices, and the chance to win our basket of goodies FREE!

Pat MacBain has been painting for years in oils and stain acrylics. The urge to create is often impelled by her love of nature, whether painting en plein air or from location sketches. Still lifes appeal to her too - in fact, anything with colour and contour. Occasionally, whimsy appears. Biggish and smallish will be offered.

With a Brownie Hawkeye camera, Sharon took her first ‘portrait’ of a magazine picture of James Dean, then showed the photo to the girls at school, claiming he was her boyfriend. She has spent a lot of time exploring through a camera lens since then, travelling and looking for home. She now lives in a community that is home in many ways, yet she is surrounded by homelessness and the unsettling feeling that her search isn’t over.These photographs reveal a snapshot of her journey.
Bernadine Fox BFA
Bernadine hails from a place on this planet that is so flat you can see company coming from over ten miles away. A graduate of Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design (now ECU), she paints, draws, teaches, curates, writes, and organizes art events and has creatively done so for a very long time. She focuses on the human condition and how the complexities of self-expression (most especially nonverbal forms of communication) reveal our experiences of being human in a social, cultural, and personal context along with our sense of identity.
