The Ferry Building Gallery at 1414 Argyle Avenue, West Vancouver, is pleased to present “Architecture of the Ruin”, an exhibition of etchings and sculptures by West Vancouver architect William Steinberg January 6-25, 2015. In the words of William “Architecture inevitably erodes. And as it moves towards entrophy, it transforms. No longer part of the new and useful, it takes on a new persona and character -- the ruin. It now possesses the remnants of its past glory, the physicality of its present existence, and the potential to inspire the future.” The Opening Reception is Tuesday, January 6, 6-8pm and everyone is welcome. Meet the Artists is Saturday, January 10, 2-3pm. Gallery hours are 11am-5pm, closed Sundays.
