District Library Gallery Opening Reception: You Are Here 2018 Calendar Exhibition

You Are Here 2018 Calendar Exhibition  

Join us for an opening reception to celebrate the You Are Here 2018 Calendar Exhibition! 

Lynn Valley Library 
Friday, November 17 | 4:30pm-6:30pm
No registration required

This exhibition features the work of 12 local artists who have been inspired by scenes and scenery of the North Shore in their work. Media presented include paintings in watercolour, acrylic and oil as well as limited edition prints.  Styles range from realistic to comic, with each artist bringing their own interpretation to scenes that are familiar to many of us.

The works have been brought together to create a 2018 calendar of entirely North Shore imagery, including the areas of the City of North Vancouver, the District of North Vancouver, and the District of West Vancouver. The calendars are a promotional and fundraising tool for the upcoming North Shore Cultural Mapping Project, spearheaded by the North Vancouver Community Arts Council.

Participating artists: Mohammad Reza Atashzad, Caroline Chao, Myranda Storm, Ewa Pluciennik, Ken Dawes, Frank Townsley, Vicki Lynn Rae, Marnie Boullard, Miles Brook, George Wilkinson, Kathy Daley, Graham Harrop.

The North Shore cultural map will be a free, dynamic, online map for residents, tourists, local organizations, urban planners and developers.  The web-based map will include facilities, organizations, events, natural and built heritage that makes the North Shore unique.

Location: Lynn Valley
Time: Friday, November 17, 2017 - 4:30pm to 6:30pm

Earthquake Hazards and Risks on Canada's West Coast

A special repeat program with Dr. John J. Clague, Department of Earth Sciences, Simon Fraser University. 

Geoscientists working on west coast of North America have demonstrated that giant (magnitude-9) earthquakes occur along the Cascadia subduction zone, where the oceanic Juan de Fuca plate moves  beneath the edge of North America. Geologic evidence of this includes sudden land-level changes, tsunami deposits, sediments generated by liquefaction, and submarine landslide deposits on the ocean floor. Historic records say these giant earthquakes have an average return period of 500 years; the most recent  giant earthquake in this area occurred in 1700.

Satellite global positioning data extending to the 1990s shows a pattern marking the build-up to the next giant earthquake, which would damage cities from Portland to Vancouver. However, the risk of more frequent, magnitude 6 and 7 crustal earthquakes, is greater than that of much larger, but rarer magnitude 9 events. 

Join us for a presentation on the likely effects of both crustal and plate-boundary earthquakes in Metro Vancouver. We’ll also discuss strategies for reducing damage of future earthquakes.
