The West Vancouver Museum is pleased to showcase North Star: The Art of Lyle Wilson featuring the evocative and meticulously rendered artwork of Haisla artist Lyle Wilson.
Lyle Wilson has been an important figure on the Canadian art scene for more than two decades. He is from Kitamaat Village in Northern British Columbia. For many years, Wilson maintained his studio in West Vancouver, producing extraordinary works on commission and for sale, as well as for the benefit of his home community. The focus of this retrospective exhibition is on Wilson's diverse artistic practice with an emphasis on his labour intensive paintings and carvings, which explore various themes and imagery.
The West Vancouver Museum will be holding an opening reception on Tuesday March 3, 2009 from 7pm to 9pm.
