夏の芸術鑑賞!Vancouver Art Galleryで感性を磨こう★

I believe that everybody has seen a beautiful building and plaza when they are walking around downtown. This symbolic building is the Vancouver Art Gallery which is popular among not only tourists but also local people.

ダウンタウンを散策するとき、みなさん必ずきれいな建物と広場に出くわすかと思います。この象徴的な建物が、Vancouver Art Galleryです。観光客だけでなく、地元の人たちにも愛されている場所です。

The Vancouver Art Gallery is one of the largest art galleries in Canada. Its temporary exhibitions are very diverse like Vancouver, so you can enjoy a wide variety of arts from all over the world. Since July 6th, new exhibitions have started. As for permanent collections, it boasts a lot of works by Canadian artists like Emily Carr. In addition, you can learn about native Canadian art.

If you want to explore Vancouver, The Vancouver Art Gallery should be one of your destinations! There are a gift shop and a café. However, the cafe is temporarily closed for renovations and will open in the late summer.

Vancouver Art Galleryはカナダの中でも最大級のアートギャラリーのひとつです。期間限定の展示はバンクーバーのようにとても多種多様で、世界中の様々なアーティストの作品を楽しむことができます。7/6からはまた新しい展示が始まるそうですよ^^常設展に関しては、Emily Carrのような有名カナディアンアーティストの作品がたくさん展示してあったり、ネイティブカナディアンのアート作品も見ることができます。

バンクーバーを散策するときは、このVancouver Art Galleryは必須で立ち寄りたい場所ですよ!中にはギフトショップやカフェもありますが、カフェは今改装中で、夏の終わり頃にオープンする予定だそうです。

If you want to save money, Tuesday evening is a great time to go because the ticket price is by donation. Normally $24 for an adult, on Tuesdays you can pay whatever you like, however, there is a suggested donation amount. But of course, due to the price on Tuesdays, it can get very busy, so please try to get there early and get in line!

もし節約したい場合は火曜の夕方に行ってみて下さい!通常は入場料が大人$24ですが、この時間は「寄付」になっています:)もちろんみんな同じように火曜の夕方めがけて行くので、早めに行って並ぶつもりでいましょうね!

Personally, I also like just sitting and chatting with friends over a cup of coffee at the plaza^^

個人的にはこの広場で友達とコーヒー片手におしゃべりするのもとても好きです^^
