Smart Saver Vancouver

This week we have a ‘artsy’ Smart Saver for you. It is the last week of February and the last week you can visit the art gallery for only $10 and receive a exclusive Emily Carr print, while supplies last.

Emily Carr was a Canadian artist and author and the Canadian Encyclopedia describes her as a ‘ Canadian Icon‘. She is mostly known for her forest scenes paintings, however the aboriginal themed paintings, which she made in her earlier years, are also popular among the artistic folks.

If you like more the wood carving arts, you should visit The Dance Screen (The Scream Too) exhibition by James Hart during your visit at the gallery. His exhibition is inspired by the traditional Haida stories, which were depended on salmon for their survival.

The gallery opens daily from 10am to 5pm and on Tuesdays until 9pm. If you do not want to pay $10 for your visit, than visit the gallery Tuesdays between 5pm and 9pm for free or make a donation.

INTERNeX Class of 2011 – Must See Vancouver

The Annual NAFSA Conference is almost starting! Maybe you just arrived in Vancouver or you’re on your way but do you already know how to explore the city? We made a list of the Must See’s in Vancouver!

Grouse Mountain
Grouse Mountain is located only 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver and truly is the marriage of wildlife and civilization. In case you take the courage and go up there what I definitely would suggest, you have to experience “the eye” – the jaw dropping 360 degree view from the world’s first wind turbine with a viewing platform on the top, which is accessible by an elevator. So do not forget your camera!

The Vancouver Aquarium in Stanly Park
In total you can experience more than 70.000 captivating creatures in Vancouver’s unparalleled Aquarium.
Enjoy dolphin and beluga whale shows in the huge outside aquariums and immerge yourself into the indoor world of Vancouver Aquarium. The Vancouver Aquarium is daily open from 9.30 am until 5 pm in the evening.

Stanley Park Horse–Drawn Tours
Have you ever been to Stanley Park and wanted to experience the park in a rather fast and comfortable way?
Stanley Park Horse – Drawn Tours are the excellent opportunity to do so. During the tour you will sit in one of these old-fashioned horse–drawn vehicles and experiences the beauty of whole Stanley Park, the number 1 attraction in Vancouver!

The Capilano Suspension bridge
This bridge is 70 meter above and 140 meter across the Capilano river in north Vancouver.Various other exciting things can be experienced around the Capilano river. 7 other suspension bridges will give you the opportunity to experience one of the oldest forests around the Vancouver region. More information can be found under capbridge.com
Harbor cruise & events
Do you want to experience Vancouver from the water? Harbor Cruises is the perfect company for that. They are the leading boat, sightseeing company in Vancouver. The company provides unparalleled views of Vancouver and offers a unique way to experience the city.

The Vancouver Lookout!
Enjoy the spectacular 360 degree view of  the most beautiful city in the world.
Go up in one of the two glass elevators and get ready for the lookout platform 130 meter high above the sea level. The view is incredible! Admission for adults is $15.

Vancouver Art Gallery
The Vancouver Art Gallery presents ever-changing world-class exhibitions, from historic masters to today’s most internationally acclaimed contemporary artists. The building also hosts collections of paintings from the beloved British Columbia artist Emily Carr.

Hell’s Gate Airtram
Vancouver’s last  “Must See Spot” is an attraction for all outdoor fans which like to immerge in the nature around Vancouver and who want to experience the freedom Canada has to offer. I am talking about the Hell’s Gate Airtram in the scenic Fraser Canyon. The Fraser Canyon is located in the heart of British Columbia and is accessible through a scenic route through the B.C. Mountains and 7 huge mountain tunnels.
Already the drive to the Canyon itself is a great adventure. Several different landscapes and a vivid wildlife can be found and experienced on your way to Hell’s Gate Airtram. Once you arrived at the top rim of the Canyon, at the observation deck, you will have an amazing view all over the Canyon and the masses of water that are floating down the Canyon!

But most of all, don’t forget to visit the incredible INTERNeX Networking Reception the 1st of June in the Blarney Stone!

If you want more information about these Must See’s, don’t hesitate to leave a comment with your questions!

Regards,

Paris’ art is in Vancouver !!!

As you may know, the famous art gallery of Vancouver opened an exhibition from Paris two months ago and it will remain open until the 6th of September. My favorite French museum, the museum of Orsay, brings 100 works from the most famous French painters of the 19th century. Renoir! Pissaro! Rodin! Toulouse-Lautrec! And many others…

You might think that I want to see this exhibition because I’m French and from Paris, or because I know the grand-child of the painter Seurat… While this may be true, this exhibition is a must see for everyone. These paintings are coming from a museum as good and as famous as the Louvres which has more French masterpieces than any other museum in the world!

It would be a shame to miss this, wouldn`t it? Especially when it’s so easy to have fun and get some culture at the same time! Moreover, many of the drawings you will find there never went out of Paris.

The topic of this exhibition is The Modern Woman. Don’t be scared men, it’s just the look of many painters at a time when women just started to be independent and offer artists a new perspective!

It’s a daily exhibition that is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. so you can go there whenever you want!

Looking for tickets? Admission is $22.50 for adults, $16 for students!

Details: 604-662-4719 and vanartgallery.bc.ca

I will be there on Sunday afternoon and hope to meet you in one of the rooms enjoying a piece of European History!
