BC Artists Files A-Z

VPL Central Branch maintains files with clippings and ephemeral material on BC artists. They can be found on Level 7 in Special Collections. Available by in-person request.

Introduction

Use the BC Gallery Files A-Z list to determine whether VPL has a file on the Gallery or other exhibiting organization you are researching. The Gallery files, which are largely comprised of news articles, gallery mailings and miscellaneous pamphlet material, are located at the Central Library. Galleries located in BC, or which frequently exhibit works by BC Artists, are included in these files. Please ask an information staff member for access to them. BC Gallery files are reference items and must be used in the library.
