Luminescence IV in Burnaby

When: March 16 to April 6, 2019
Tuesdays to Saturdays 12:00pm to 4:00pm
Where: Deer Lake Gallery (6584 Deer Lake Ave, Burnaby)
Admission: Free general admission. VIP passes are available online.

This family-friendly event features compelling artworks by 25+ local artists representing varying disciplines. These artists present the many ways this brilliant natural phenomenon – the essence of light or luminescence – has inspired them.

Luminescence IV will feature up to 30 individual works that utilize two and three dimensional professional designs, creating an illuminating experience. This year one of the featured artists is local Burnaby icon Ron Simmer who will be showing his highly engaging Berzerkatroid Dragon. The dragon is approximately 16 feet long, 9 feet high and weighs approximately 450 lb. The propane fire effect was fabricated by Daniel Stratten of Think Industrial.

Limited VIP Passes are available for the opening (March 16th) at a cost of $25 each. These tickets include front of the line access, early entry to the event (7:00pm, one hour before general admission), a drink ticket and access to an exclusive performance. The opening night event features DJ BJAM and a live fire performance by ACROfire Entertainment.
