The Legacy Art Gallery and Cafe is pleased to present Taking Flight, an exhibit showcasing the life’s work of one of Canada’s foremost avian artists, J. Fenwick Lansdowne. Born in Hong Kong, Lansdowne spent the majority of his life in British Columbia where he created delicate representations of birds and plant life. These renderings led to his being appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1976, followed by the award of the Order of British Columbia in 1995. Taking Flight features a variety of Lansdowne’s works, including watercolor paintings, drawings, and prints.
