Burnaby Art Gallery Presents Aganetha Dyck
From February 3rd to April 12th, the Burnaby Art Gallery (BAG) is pleased to showcase the innovative work of Aganetha Dyck.
As a multi-media artist, Dyck’s work often explores the topical notions of feminism, surrealism and what she calls “the power of the small.” Born in Winnipeg, this contemporary artist also frequently collaborates with honeybees in her research.
In this exhibit, she features some of her work as it relates to the communication between humans and bees – including works from the Hive Scans series, and elements from brail collaborations between the artist and the bees.
As one of Canada’s most renowned female artists, Aganetha Dyck was honoured with the Governor General’s Award in Visual Arts in 2007.
Join the Burnaby Art Gallery in celebrating the artist’s work at a special reception on Saturday, February 7th from 1pm to 3pm. And as part of the BAG’s 2009 Lecture Series, the gallery presents an afternoon with the artist on Sunday, February 8th from 4:30pm to 6:00pm.
