|BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS|
The major effort so far this year was to complete transcription of
the annual B.C. Artists' and
B.C. Society of Fine Arts exhibitions up to 1950, and the
creation or updating of all related artist biographies. After
18 years this has finally been completed, every artist
on the pre-1950 list of artists now
has a biography file. That was an incredible amount of work.
Information from more than 300 BC Vital Statistics documents for births, marriages, and deaths has been added. A large collection of post-1950 catalogues and publications is still being referenced, 21 have been added so far this year.
The Greater Vancouver Art Galleries page has been significantly expanded to include 500+ galleries and 1,200+ exhibition listings. Cross referencing the exhibitions to the artist A - Z index and to artist biographies is in progress, and a number of "new" artists will be listed.
