Betamax Gallery is hosting it’s inaugural art exhibition, STORYLINES, paintings by Johnny Taylor, a Vancouver-based contemporary abstract painter, June 8 – July 12. The public is invited to attend the opening reception, to check out the new exhibit, on Friday, June 8 from 6-10pm. Rachel Zottenberg, owner of Betamax (and curator of the art exhibition), hopes to host an exciting roster of emerging and seasoned artists from across North America and beyond. Her vision is to develop and enhance creative partnerships and collaborations, while presenting work that is exploratory, challenging, critical and… fun.
STORYLINES Exhibit: Taylor’s current work weaves nature into modern architecture, the compositions evoking aspects of traditional Asian painting. His foundation was shaped by early Canadian landscape painting, abstract expressionism, and blueprint drafting. Johnny’s accomplished use of line applied to various media, with a keen response to the influence of his surroundings, resulting in the sophisticated abstraction that informs his artistic process. BETAMAX is located at 2244 East Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC
Opening Reception Friday, June 8 6 ‑ 10pm
