Gordon Smith Gallery

I'm at it again with the camera!
This building is located on Lonsdale where the old  Lonsdale  Elementary  School once stood.
The North Vancouver School District offices are located above the Gordon Smith Gallery. North Vancouver has an excellent program  where artists donate original art pieces and the prints from each  piece are sold to benefit the Art for Kids program. The N.Van art students are able to attend a summer art camp at the outdoor school ... with the artists donating their time to teach.
The building is all wood and glass ... very impressive. A Central 'well' has offices located around the empty central space.

Looking down from the top floor.

From the patio: Vancouver skyline

Looking down Lonsdale ... with high rise buildings rising like mushrooms.
Outside the building ... yarn bombing adds a colourful note.
A Robert Davidson sculpure in the garden.
