  • Blue Cabin - A floating artist residency

  • Big Print 2014 - Richard Tetrault

    Vancouver’s first Big Print Project was a visually striking event designed to highlight printmaking as a dramatic public event. Drawing attention to the potential of large-scale wood-relief prints, it brought  together a group of well-known artists in creating and printing a suite of woodcuts. 

  • Radius under scaffolding

    The Radius mural represents three distinct communities that converge in the Downtown Eastside: Aboriginal, Chinese and Japanese. The mural was conceived to reflect themes of origin and place, weaving together material gathered from outreach workshops into the design. The team of artists and mentored youth come from each of these communities. Located at the Firehall Arts Centre.

  •  The Hall occupies a prominent location in Strathcona, a community in East Vancouver that is home to hundreds of artists and host to numerous arts festivals and performances throughout the year. This historic building,originally constructed in 1937 by the Croatian community, was purchased in 1947 by the Federation of Russian Canadians to enhance their community and culture. Part of the Vancouver Murals Tour.

  • The Living Wall

    The Living Wall mural was part of a ‘Grey to Green,’ initiative to improve liveability in the alley for local residents and workers. Part of the Vancouver Murals Tour...

Our vision for the Blue Cabin, the last squatters’ cabin on the Burrard Inlet, is to return it to a barge to be used as a studio space alongside a tiny, self-sustainable house to act as a floating compound for a unique and vital multi-disciplinary artist-in- residence program. The residency will be off-grid with solar panels, composting toilets, rainwater catchment, and a small container garden.

 

The Elusive Landscape: A Canadian Collaboration

Gerald Pedros, Esther Rausenberg, Richard Tetrault

The Big Print Project 2014 (a joint initiative with New Leaf Editions and C3 Society) was an event designed to highlight printmaking as a dramatic public event. Drawing attention to the potential of large-scale wood-relief prints, it brought together a group of well-known artists as well as mentored artists in creating a suite of woodcuts.

It started in the kitchen, at the Chan’s house, over 40 years ago and today, the founding members and supporters of the Strathcona Property Owners and Tenants Association (SPOTA) are being honoured with the unveiling of a mosaic that pays tribute to their efforts in stopping the freeway from being built through their community in the late 1960’s.

The Radius mural represents three distinct communities that converge in the Downtown Eastside: Aboriginal, Chinese and Japanese. The mural was conceived to reflect themes of origin and place, weaving together material gathered from outreach workshops into the design. The team of artists and mentored youth come from each of these communities. 

A quartet of four community-based murals sponsored by Britannia Community Services Society and coordinated by Richard Tetrault was painted in East Vancouver in the summer of 2009, marking Britannia High School’s Centennial and celebrating its place within the community
