3045 Granville Street, Vancouver
Opening Reception: Saturday November 18, 2-4pm

Bau-Xi Vancouver is proud and honoured to open 2024 with Repose, a special retrospective solo exhibition from eminent Canadian artist Joseph Plaskett (1918-2014). This collection of oils, pastels and etchings features quietly captivating scenes of interiors and gardens most loved by the artist.

A native of New Westminster, BC, Plaskett studied art in Banff, San Francisco, New York, London and Paris. His time in Paris and later years in Suffolk, England (where he passed away in 2014) are the focus of this exhibition, and each work reflects his distinctive mastery of form and composition and a perpetually fresh palette. 

Since the 1940s, Plaskett has had over 65 solo and group exhibitions, with work in major public, private and corporate collections including the National Gallery of Canada. He has exhibited with Bau-Xi Gallery, both in Vancouver and Toronto, since 1973. In the spring of 2001, he was awarded The Order of Canada for excellence in the field of visual art.

Join us and explore the intimate and extraordinary world of one of Canada's greatest artists.
