The Hangar Show is a two-day event held in an aircraft hangar in Richmond BC featuring furniture designs by Arnt Arntzen and paintings by Virginia Ivanicki. After working in the Vancouver East Side for many years and admiring each other’s style, the two artists have collaborated to sponsor and promote this unique event.

Arnt Arntzen is known for mixed media sculptures and furniture that make use of recycled aviation materials. He takes his wood from fallen trees and scours junk yards for metal. The current exhibit highlights pieces that recycle aeronautical parts like helicopter blades and airplane propellers in signature contemporary furniture designs. Arntzen is concerned with making contemporary forms that stand the test of time and appear almost classic instyle, like clean, modernist benches, coffee tables and low armchairs.

Virginia Ivanicki paints allegorical illustrations of WW11 bombers and fighters as well as seaplanes from the 1940s to the 1960s. Her work has a vintage sensibility partly as a result of the subject matter and partly as a result of her low key colours and fantastic perspectives. Many works are composed in the fashion of surrealist narratives or theatrical productions. Ivanicki originally trained in Fine Arts at the Alberta College of Art and Design and has since lived in Vancouver for 30 years. In 2009, she won the annual Artflight Aviation painting competition at the Canada Aviation Museum in Ottawa. She is a new member of the Canadian Aviation Artists Association and a Fellow of the American Society of Aviation Artists.
