We All Drew, Always

West Vancouver Art Museum, West Vancouver, BC - Nov 7-Dec 16

It seems impossible that one family could have produced four practicing artists, but as the show demonstrates, the Mayrs brothers – Bill, Frank, David and Charles – all graduated from the Vancouver School of Art in the mid-20th century and all pursued careers in the visual and applied arts. With day jobs that included art direction, exhibition design, teaching and illustration, they all also painted and drew, their work ranging from landscape-based abstraction to surreal social commentary.
