A celebration of the life and work of Bertram Charles Binning, one of Canada's foremost artists, architectural innovators and arts educators-a seminal figure in the flourishing of the arts in British Columbia.

Artist, educator and architectural innovator -- Bertram Charles (B.C.) Binning was all of these. From the early 1930s through the mid-1970s Binning was at the forefront of West Coast modern art, architecture and arts education. He is perhaps best known for the groundbreaking design of his Modernist home, which has been recognized by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. Built in 1940, the Binning residence captures the spirit of early Modernism in Canada. Binning is equally well known for his lively line drawings and his geometric, non-figurative abstract paintings that often reflect his fascination with boats and maritime activity.
