Ron Thom and the Allied Arts

Tuesday, June 2, 2015 to Friday, August 21, 2015

Exhibit organized by the West Vancouver Museum, curated by Adele Weder.

The exhibition "Ron Thom and the Allied Arts" explores the evolution of west coast architect Ron Thom from his beginnings as an artist/protégé of Jack Shadbolt and Bert Binning at the Vancouver School of Art, to his groundbreaking west coast house architecture, to the internationally renowned architecture of Massey College and Trent University in Ontario. Enriched with never-before-exhibited drawings and sketches, vintage photos, original Ron Thom-designed furniture and prototypes, original drawings by his teachers Shadbolt and Binning, the exhibition conceptually and in some cases literally juxtaposes the west coast work with his architecture in central Canada, tracing and illuminating the narrative thread of Thom's architectural evolution.
