“Canadian Legacy” Art Show: 150 Years of Art in One B.C. Family
May 2nd to May 27th, 2017 ... Opening reception Saturday May 6th 1-3PM
To mark Canada’s 150th anniversary, the Heine family of British Columbia would like to extend an invitation to join us in celebrating our combined total of 150 years as professional Canadian artists. You may not know the Heine name, but if you are Canadian, chances are you have seen our work on Canadian coins and stamps, or in galleries, newspapers, advertising, books or magazines.
Creating work that ranges from original watercolour and oil paintings that hang in collections around the world, to illustrations, murals, coin designs and photography, the Heines have been part of the Canadian art scene for more than 60 years, starting with Harry Heine (1928-2004), and followed by daughters Caren and Jennifer, son Mark, and now, granddaughter Sarah.
While Caren, Jennifer and Mark have shown, toured and taught with their father as guest artists, “Canadian Legacy” will mark the first time the art of Harry Heine, his three children and granddaughter, will be on display together as a family. It will also be the family’s first three-generation show – a singular event in Canadian art.
