Vancouver/Vancouver, the inaugural event at Main Street’s new Gallery 1965, features a two-part salon-style exhibition of pieces by 66 artists. The works were selected by curator Michael Turner from the collection of Vancouver builder Rick Erickson, a recognized philanthropist of the arts and a passionate collector of contemporary Vancouver art for 40 years.

Showing a slight bias towards works with themes of portraits, alphabets, taxonomies and mapping, Erickson’s collection is a veritable Who’s Who of Vancouver artists, including 12 Midnite, Rebecca Belmore, Jessica Bushey, Lincoln Clarkes, Dana Claxton, Jim Cummins, Stan Douglas, Graham Gillmore, Rodney Graham, Antonia Hirsch, Attila Richard Lukacs, Ken Lum, Liz Magor, Eric Metcalfe, David Ostrem, Judy Radul, Charles Rea, Derek Root, Paul Wong, Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun and Etienne Zack among numerous other influential artmakers in Vancouver’s past and present.

Michael Turner – art critic, award-winning fiction writer and author of several publications on Vancouver artists – notes, “ … this collection is a reflection of his four-corner engagement with the city and its histories.” Billed as a “a celebration of Vancouver art and artists,” the exhibits provide a rare opportunity to view pivotal pieces.
