      Cottage country

      The Vancouver Art Gallery is opening a show custom-made for everyone counting down the days to summer and trying to find a rustic paradise in the woods. Cabin Fever opens Saturday (June 9) with an ode to the iconic abode by way of photography, video, and more. Seventeen architectural models trace North American cabin design through the years, alongside two installations by James Benning and a full-size cabin by Liz Magor. You’ll see high-design cabins of your dreams (a University of Colorado Outward Bound Micro Cabin [Jesse Kuroiwa photo] shown here) and the humblest of shacks. Catch this before you get outta town. 

      Cabin Fever is at the Vancouver Art Gallery from Saturday (June 9) to September 30.
