Our first exhibit in 2022, Disappearing White Rock, features the work of a diverse group of local artists who donated their time to capture in various media some of the oldest homes in White Rock. White Rock’s mid-century and older “cottage houses” have largely disappeared as the march of time leads to their replacement. This project brings together local artists to capture many of those that remain to celebrate their charm and humble persistence in our community. Some of the homes that are featured were demolished during the time that this project was in development, reinforcing the importance of preserving a record of these humble, older homes.
This project was sponsored by the Plein Air Art Society and is a collaboration between Greg Smith who originally mounted an exhibit of these works at his residence in the summer of 2021 and Charlene Garvey, Curator at the White Rock Museum & Archives.
Our deepest thanks go to the artists involved in this project, who have been very generous with their time and artistic talents, and to the residents of the homes that have been included in the project to date.
