Curator Tour

Ann Kipling: Drawing the Line

North Shore Works 1962–1967
January 25–March 25, 2017 


Curator Tour: February 25 at 2 p.m.


2 fish on plate


Guest curator Robin Laurence will tour visitors through the exhibition, expanding on the way the works on display signal a creative breakthrough for Ann Kipling early in her career. Kipling's development of her characteristic drawing style occurred during the 1960s while she was living on Vancouver's North Shore, first in Lynn Valley and then in Sunshine Falls, on Indian Arm. Laurence will also draw attention to Kipling's total dedication to her drawing medium and her keen attention to her living subjects, whether people, birds, dogs, or trees.


Robin Laurence is an independent writer, critic, and curator, based in Vancouver. She is the award-winning visual arts critic for The Georgia Straight and has been a contributing editor of both Canadian Art and Border Crossings magazines. Over the course of her career, she has written essays for dozens of books and exhibition catalogues, and has contributed features and reviews to local, national, and international publications.


Please join Robin Laurence for her exhibition tour on Saturday, February 25 at 2 p.m. Admission is by donation.
