Deer Lake Park: A Gift From God – Kelvin Chan

Event Navigation

December 5, 2020 @ 10:00 am - January 30, 2021 @ 6:00 pm

* Deerlake Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Sunday from 12pm - 4pm / Fridays - 12 - 6pm


Deer Lake Park: A Gift From God draws inspiration from the crown jewel nestled in the middle of the city of Burnaby. Over the last couple of years artist Kelvin Chan has had the pleasure of spending many days in Deer Lake Park, taking photos for the 2020 Deer Lake Park calendar. By observing the park for so long he was able to familiarize himself with its flora and fauna, to notice its unique patterns, and to discover its significant role in the lives of the community members. One story in particular stood out, from a woman whose husband proposed to her on Deer Lake’s beach. Her and her husband celebrated their wedding at Deer Lake’s Hart House Restaurant, and often took walks in the park together. She told Kelvin that the park is a gift from God.

This exhibition will feature artworks by Kelvin Chan, and will be hosted at Single V Coffee. The BAC and Deer Lake Art Gallery are grateful for this opportunity to partner with Single V Coffee while the gallery is closed for renovations.
