Telling Stories — inside the exhibition catalogue

BestB4 Collective launches their exhibition catalogue for Telling Stories — a visual arts exhibition this Saturday. Sassamatt Images has produced this catalogue with contributions from all exhibiting artists. The bi-lingual exhibition catalogue, translated by Toni Zhang McAfee and Sophi Liang (courtesy of the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver), includes a curatorial essay by Alison Keenan and Phyllis Schwartz, exhibition images and artist biographies. 

Telling Stories — the exhibition catalogue has been designed by Edward Peck and Jim Friesen. Both Peck and Friesen draw upon their respective backgrounds as writers and photographers who design books. Their sense of photographic composition is translated into a rhythmic sequence of images between the covers of their books. Edward Peck’s publishing career began in the 1970s as an editor of Canadian fiction, poetry and drama anthologies and assistant editor of the Canadian Fiction Magazine. His recent publications include exhibition catalogues and photographic documentation of artist studios. Jim Friesen studied journalism and creative writing at Red River College in Winnipeg and digital photography at Langara College, in Vancouver. As a poet and independent photographer, he has collaborated with Stephen Gross, of Gravity Press, to design and print books of their own work, as well as volumes of poetry for other writers.

This limited edition exhibition catalogue will be available at the BestB4 Collective's Artist Tour and Exhibition Catalogue Launch on Saturday, 29 November (2-4 pm) in the On-Tak Cheung Exhibition Hall in the Chinese Cultural Centre Museum (555 Columbia Street at Keefer, Vancouver). The catalogue will be available  for purchase at a special event price ($20). It is also available for purchase on line
