In light of the current situation regarding COVID-19 and the rapidly changing conditions, I am sad to announce that we will be postponing our upcoming exhibition, Luminescence V, indefinitely, along with all our events and programming. 


The Burnaby Arts Council has taken all factors into consideration and after much discussion, we have made the difficult decision to close our office and the Deer Lake Art Gallery to the public. The office will still be operating during normal office hours, and our staff team will still be available to contact via e-mail if you have any ongoing questions or concerns. 


  • To all our volunteers

Thank you for your continued support of the Deer Lake Gallery and for taking the time to come out and attend the gallery. While we will not be needing any volunteers for the foreseeable future, we look forward to working with you again once the situation has calmed down.


  • To our supporters

While we will be closed for a period, we will continue to update everyone on our social media channels, so please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and subscribe to our newsletter for the latest news. Thank you for always supporting us by coming to our exhibitions, live music events, and participating in workshops and artists talks. 


The health and safety of all our members, staff, volunteers and visitors is our number one priority. Over the next few weeks, we will be closely monitoring the situation for any changes. 


As we evaluate our current plan, please bear with us for a bit as we work on a strategy for future activities. Responses may be slower than usual. 


In the meantime, we will be working on renovating our current website so we can continue bringing you amazing local art along with ways to support the individual artists. 


While social distancing means avoiding crowded places, the sun has been shining and Deer Lake Park is the perfect place to get some fresh air and relax during an uncertain time.
