Gallery Efforts Honoured by BCMA
Share
October 4 to December 31

At the BC Museums Association annual conference awards gala in Prince George, BC on October 2, the Kamloops Art Gallery was recognized for their efforts in presenting Luminocity in 2018.

The Award of Merit for Excellence in Exhibitions saw 14 museums and galleries across BC nominated with Wild Things from the Museum of Vancouver taking home the award. The Kamloops Art Gallery along with BOOM! from the Britannia Mine Museum received a shared Honourable mention. Other nominees included Culture at the Centre from the Museum of Anthropology at UBC and Fred Hollingsworth: Art of Architecture from the West Vancouver Art Museum.

The Award of Merit recognizes a recent outstanding, innovative and/or creative achievement in any and all aspects of exhibition development and design, including content and curatorial choices; presentation, organization and format; interpretation; and community relevance.

“My heartfelt congratulations to the Museum of Vancouver for winning the award. They are an exemplary institution. This Honourable mention for us from BCMA and our peers across BC is a testament to our ongoing and sustained commitment to excellence and working to connect with our community in an enlivening and inspired way,” says Margaret Chrumka, Executive Director, Kamloops Art Gallery. “I am so proud of our efforts and what we bring to Kamloops, the province and country as a key arts organization.”

Luminocity is a week-long video art exhibition showcasing video projects by artists from across the country in unexpected public spaces through the downtown core every second year. This free, outdoor exhibition sees over 20,000 visitors during its run with weekend live music performances, tours and talks also working to enliven the event. Planning for Luminocity in October 2020 is well underway.
