The work has recently received notice and publicity in the mainstream media:
The Burnaby Art Gallery presents the first survey exhibition of Professor Emeritus, Renée Van Halm’s work in Cross-Cutting/Inside Out.
The exhibit primarily focuses on Renée’s works on paper, as the exhibition explores in detail the artist’s interest in the role architecture plays in shaping our physical and social interactions. With this as an underlying theme, Cross-Cutting/Inside Out surveys over thirty years of work by the recognized Canadian painter.
The Bellevue Arts Museum presents sessional faculty member Dirk Staschke’s first museum solo exhibition Falling Feels a Lot Like Flying.
Winner of the John and Joyce Price Award of Excellence of the BAM Biennial 2010: Clay Throwdown!, Dirk returns to BAM with this ultra-relaistic installation focusing on desire and consumption. Inspired by the bountiful Vanitas still-life paintings of 16th-century Northern Europe and the excessive ornamentation of the Baroque period, he seduces the viewer with his voluptuous organic forms while exploring themes of excess and its effects.

This first of a two-part exhibition looks at how artists in Vancouver worked with camera images during the vital period of the 1980s. The project brings together photographic and media art from two generations, including key innovators of the influential “Vancouver school.” Many of the works will be seen for the first time since they were originally exhibited. C. 1983 identifies self-reflective and concept driven camera works that points to the significance of photographic images in contemporary art practices at that time.
