Roy Arden’s solo exhibition at the CAG is now closed. It was extremely well attended, with 2,479 visitors. On March 19th we celebrated the launch of Arden’s artist publication, UNDERTHESUN, which was available at the gallery free of charge and distributed to various locations around the city. We still have some of the publications left and they will be available at the CAG for the price of $10 once we reopen next week. We also released a special edition of 15 black and white archival pigment prints by Roy Arden. They were a great deal and sold out in a flash!
Here are some photos from taking down the show.

Come to the CAG this Saturday evening, March 19th, 6-7 pm, to celebrate the launch of Roy Arden’s artist publication, UNDERTHESUN. Produced as part of his solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery, the publication documents the majority of the nearly one hundred works on view and was designed by Arden in collaboration with Mark Timmings.
The publication will be available at the CAG for FREE until the exhibition closes on Sunday March 27th. It will also be available at select locations throughout the city, such as Read Bookstore at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Langara College Library, the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory at the University of British Columbia, the Vancouver Public Library’s Central Branch, and Vancity Theatre.
In addition to the publication, we are also launching Divine Love, 2011, a special edition black and white archival pigment print by Roy Arden. Measuring 15×20 inches, printed on rag paper and produced in a limited edition of 15 with 3 artist’s proofs, it is available for $300.
We hope to see you here on Saturday!
