UPwithART 2.0 - 24-30 May 2020


Donated by Barbara & Patrick Mahon


I met Robbin Yager in the late 1980’s in Vancouver when we were both making prints on Granville Island. She had studied at ACAD in Calgary; I had recently come from the Northwest Territories (the area that is now Nunavut). I was captivated by her coloured etchings; printed from one plate. She would ‘wipe in’ the multiple colours, one by one. We traded prints and I have treasured this one ever since.

She has been an active artist in Western Canada since then, and her work is included in numerous collections, including:

Air Canada, Montreal, QC; Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Edmonton AB; Arthur Erickson Architect, Vancouver, BC; BP Amoco, Canada, AB; Canada Council Art Bank, Ottawa, ON; Continental Bank of Canada, New York, NY; Encana, Calgary, AB; Ernst and Young, HONG KONG; Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, Toronto, ON; Herman Miller Canada Inc., Toronto, ON; Nickle Arts Museum, Calgary, AB; Opus Framing, Vancouver, BC; Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC; Suncor Energy, Calgary, AB; TransCanada PipeLines, Calgary, AB; Workers Compensation Board, Toronto, ON, and; Wregglesworth & Associates, Vancouver, BC.
