We wanted to be a little cheeky and playful when we came up with the idea for this show. Contemplating aesthetics, the seasons, form and design lead to our August exhibition “White Before Labour Day”.  But we never forget not to take ourselves too seriously and added a little bit of humour, poking fun at social “rules”…

Traversing across this large country of ours is not a simple task. There is a lot of land between BC and Ottawa. But this determined group of artists, elders and youth have not let adversity stop them. After some delay with vehicle troubles in Calgary, with the helping hands of many supporters, the group continued…

Beau Dick set off July 2nd from UBC on a journey that will take him to the other side of Canada.

From the Georgia Straight: AN ANCIENT FIRST Nations ritual steeped in symbolism is going to take place…

Yes we are now open on Sundays! 12-5pm Our neighbourhood is really starting to come alive and is a lovely place to spend the day. The Olympic Village, just blocks from the gallery, has beautiful walkways, parks and waterfront cafes. This is creating a wonderful weekend walking neighbourhood around us and we wanted to contribute to the fun by…

We would like to take a moment and pay tribute to Carole Landau. Carole passed away last week in her home in Mexico.

When The Flag Shop owner Susan Braverman called Fazakas Gallery’s Director,LaTiesha Fazakas, about a new flag launch, LaTiesha was excited to assist. Braverman introduced her to artist Mulidzas – Curtis Wilson, the flag creator, and asked her to help him convey his intentions behind the flag’s creation. LaTiesha’s thoughts . . . “A big part of my job is to communicate the intention, historical…

Our Inappropriate Exhibition is certainly cause for discussion. We could not be more pleased that we are a Vancouver Art Gallery that explores, excites, and challenges ideas. Another wonderful article about the gallery has been written by Anne Moscatello in La Source Magazine. It is in French so you might have to translate it. Open…

We had a very fun show opening last night with our three artists in attendance – Beau Dick, Rande Cook, and Cole Speck.  The Vancouver Sun got it exactly right when they listed our gallery opening as one of the top ten events in Vancouver for this week. We are proud to be a fresh…

This year his work will be part of UBC’s “Claiming Space: Voices of Urban Aboriginal Youth”.  Claiming Space: Voices of Urban Aboriginal Youth looks at…

When we blogged about Beau Dick’s Transformation Mask at the Museum of Civilization we had no idea that there was a delightful “Beau” story attached. Knowing Beau for so long we shouldn’t be surprised but he is an artist and character who never ceases to amaze. We are so pleased that his cousin Geraldine Fitch…

This month the Vancouver Art Gallery’s exhibition, Charles Edenshaw, traveled to the National Gallery in Ottawa, and Fazakas Gallery owner LaTiesha Fazakas had the honour of being there along with Haida artist Jim Hart and curator Robin Wright.  Jim Hart generously shared his vast cultural and family heritage, and Professor Wright gave a wonderful and…

What a delight to discover Beau Dick’s Transformation Mask in the Great Hall of the Canadian Museum of Civilization, Gatineau. This massive homage to Northwest Coast Art can be found alongside commanding works such as Haida artist Bill Reid’s Spirit of Haida Gwaii and  monumental historic pieces produced by other Northwest Coast Native art masters….

A strongly spiritual man, Beau considers himself a conduit for forces outside of himself, a vessel through which otherworldly ideas are expressed.  Having learned over the years that getting away from the hustle and bustle of the world helps stir his creativity, Beau finds the remoteness of his home in Alert Bay perfect for getting in touch with the spiritual…

Vancouver fashionista and style expert Susie Wall agrees with us, she, too, is in love with Carlos Colin’s work. Susie was the lucky bidder who took home Mascara 002, a large photograph printed with pigment on bamboo paper that is part of a series Colin is working on for his solo summer exhibition at the Fazakas…

This year’s auction motto “Art can move hearts, souls, beliefs and understanding,”  was definitely in peoples minds as works from many cultures were snapped up by gala attenders.  Local art aficionados had a wonderful selection to choose from and happily engaged in the bidding.  Gaiety lasted throughout the evening and a good time was had…

This week Fazakas Gallery has the pleasure of hosting Harrisson Ladouceur for her Grade 12 work experience week.
