 What our readers say…

“I always find something of particular interest in the magazine. There were a couple of articles this time, especially on the Glenbow’s exhibition of Maud Lewis paintings. I knew her name but really nothing more. The article led me to the NFB documentary Maud Lewis: A World Without Shadows, and I’m also going to look for the film Maudie.”
James W. Wright

“Preview magazine is THE comprehensive guide to exhibitions and galleries in the Pacific Northwest – and it’s small enough to carry in a purse. Thanks to Preview, I discovered a wonderful gallery hidden in an office building and an uplifting exhibition at a church on a visit to Vancouver BC.”
Gillian McConnell

“Chock-a-block of great information. It’s comprehensive and a great read. Preview is the go-to-place for those of us looking to add to our collection or give our brains and heart a buzz. Thanks for the terrific effort to publish the guide.”
Glen Loo

“So very glad you continue providing the public service of publishing Preview. During these shelter-at-home torture times your guide keeps me engaged and relishing doses of culture ahead.”
