Today from 2-4 p.m. the MacKenzie Art Gallery is hosting its annual holiday party. If you go, not only will you have the opportunity to participate in all sorts of fun activities, you’ll also be able to check out all the great art that’s on display.

There’s a couple of bodies of work by Vancouver photographer/artist Ian Wallace, along with Real Life which features sculptural and video installations by Ron Mueck (that’s his Head of a Baby above) and Guy Ben-Ner. For more info on Real Life, here’s a link to an article Carle wrote on it back in September.

Finally, there’s an MFA exhibit by Jennifer Mapplebeck called FLUX ÆTERNA in which dinnertable  excesses (as depicted via a ceramic installation) serve as a metaphor for our reckless disregard of the environment.

Also on this afternoon is a People’s Assembly On Climate Justice at Knox Met United Church (lower level) from 2-5 p.m. To pre-register call 551-8500.
