Richmond Art Gallery’s central location makes art easily accessible
Artist Mike Bourscheid grew up in a “blue-collar family” that he said didn’t have time for museums and art.
As his artistic interest grew, the Luxembourg native searched out art and museums on his own.
Now Bourscheid is an international artist who is thrilled to have his first solo institutional show displayed at the Richmond Art Gallery (RAG) which sits in the well-frequented, transit friendly Richmond Cultural Centre hub that also includes the Richmond Public Library, Richmond Museum, The City of Richmond Archives and the Richmond Art Centre.
“I had to seek art out. It wasn’t easy. Here it is right in front of you. It’s incredible,” said Bourscheid about RAG’s central location by Zoom from Luxembourg recently. “It’s in a community space. It’s pretty cool.”
Bourscheid’s Sunny Side Up and other sorrowful stories along with the video Agnes will be on display Jan. 28 to April 2 at the gallery. Running simultaneously at the gallery is the new Codes of Silence, curated by the RAG’s Zoë Chan.
