The first major exhibition of paintings by Vancouver-based Haisla artist, Lyle Wilson, revealing his evolving artistic vision and celebrating his accomplishments as a painter. Created over a period of 20 years, this collection of 58 works shows remarkable detail in execution, and reflects narrative themes and personal stories.

An exhibition catalogue is also available for sale in the Gallery Gift Shop. 

Exhibition runs through September 15, 2013
