Journey into Nature Concentrated at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s captivating all-age Family FUSE Weekend, returning on Saturday, July 29 and Sunday, July 30. Get inspired by new ideas, hunt for different perspectives and scout out a range of artistic styles with artists, dancers, musicians, performers and educators at this Family Fuse Weekend.

This creativity-infused weekend is organized in conjunction with the Gallery’s summer exhibitions: Claude Monet’s Secret Garden; Stephen Shore: The Giverny Portfolio; Pictures From Here; Elad Lassry; Persistence; and Emily Carr: Into the Forest. Join our many art agents, art educators and artists through Nature Concentrated as they explore the ways that the arts prompt us connect and respond to nature.

· Experiment with watercolour paints, and capture light and shade just like French painter Claude Monet did in this Impressionism-inspired en plein air painting workshop.
· Respond to the Gallery’s exhibition Emily Carr: Into the Forest, move throughout the Gallery and become part of dancer Sarah Gallos’s performance Follow, which features live violin.
· Transform the Gallery’s rotunda into a web using stretchable elastic interlace and watch in awe as the Entralics dance troupe create an unpredictable performance that draws attention to the ways in which we move through the world.
· Explore photography’s potential to create stories in our workshop with Madelyn Mulvaney. · Learn about perspective, scale and focus, and in the process, rediscover the Gallery through the lens of the photographer.
· Get inspired and take a closer look at the everyday objects that artists use to tell stories in the exhibition Persistence. Re-imagine what an object can mean in our Sketch Station with artist and educator Kate Dawson.
· Join art educators at the Making Place as we think about places and spaces from many angles through a process of photomontage. Get a chance to show your unique, multi-perspective experience of the Vancouver Art Gallery!
· Join the Art Agents in the Gallery exhibition Pictures From Here to explore how artists use cameras in innovative ways to make pictures that tell stories about Vancouver.
· Vancouver-based contemporary performance maker, choreographer and improviser Caroline Liffmann will fuse theatre, performance and photographs in an interactive workshop responding to the Gallery’s exhibition Pictures From Here.
· Create your own creative button at our ever-popular Button Station.

About the Vancouver Art Gallery
Founded in 1931, the Vancouver Art Gallery is recognized as one of North America’s most respected and innovative visual arts institutions. The Gallery’s ground-breaking exhibitions, extensive public programs, and emphasis on advancing scholarship focus on historical and contemporary art from British Columbia and around the world. Special attention is paid to the accomplishments of Indigenous artists, as well as to the arts of the Asia Pacific region—through the Institute of Asian Art that the Gallery founded in 2014. The Gallery’s programs also explore the impacts of images in the larger sphere of visual culture, design and architecture.

The Vancouver Art Gallery is a not-for-profit organization supported by its members, individual donors, corporate funders, foundations, the City of Vancouver, the Province of British Columbia through the BC Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
