Vancouver Art Gallery

Last weekend I took Friday off and we went to the Vancouver Art Gallery for our weekend excursion. I haven't been there in ages so it was a great little outing. It's right in the heart of downtown, so we had a nice brunch at Rosie's on Robson and I popped into the library to pick up a book I had on hold.
The reason we went on Friday is because they have an event series called Out For Lunch. That day was Gene Ramsbottom on clarinet and Richard Epp on piano playing pieces by Carl Vollrath - two of them were world premieres!
The room is an old part of the building that used to be the court rooms. Gorgeous!
Here is CK talking to the clarinetist's wife...
and now talking to the clarinetist himself. He is also the man who organizes the series.
He was having trouble with his recorder so my hubby recorded them on his phone. We emailed them to him afterwards and he was very grateful.
Such gorgeous art deco styles in the gallery.
The main exhibit they have on now is called Grand Hotel.
Look at this model of the Waldorf Astoria in New York:
Each of the windows is a screen picture.
'Twas a very nice way to spend my day off!
