This Week In Gastown
Written by Gastown Admin
@88 East Cordova Street
As Gallery Gachet prepares to move two blocks west, the art collective will be taking one last moment at 88 East Cordova Street, to gather and share memories with neighbours, artists and friends.
Everyone is invited to reminisce about times past and help dream about Gallery Gachet’s new home.
The gallery’s new partners, WePress, will be in attendance to facilitate art making. Of course, there will be food and music!
Copp House book launch
On October 26th from 5 to 7pm, join the launch of the latest in the SALA Modern House Series, Copp House by Adele Weder with photography by Michael Perlmutter.
In 1950, a young Vancouver architectural apprentice was handed a small house project that his boss was too busy to take on. The apprentice, Ron Thom, took the simple plan and rectangular foundation that had been roughed in, and transformed it into a groundbreaking work of architecture that gained national fame. Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and Richard Neutra, but using local wood and paying careful attention to its verdant oceanside setting, Thom created a landmark for the new architectural movement known as West Coast Modernism. The Copp House is the story of a cultural landmark on the shores of Vancouver.
