Abstract (English)

Catalogue of a selective survey exhibition of the collection of Vancouver lawyer J. Ron Longstaffe, held on the occasion of the gallery's move to new premises into the renovated Courthouse building. About a quarter of the nearly 1,000 pieces donated to the gallery by the collector were selected by Farrell-Ward to represent a spectrum of contemporary art with a primary focus on Canadian painting. Curator's essay traces the history and evolution of the collection; Longstaffe's outlines the motivations underlying his "addiction". Biographical notes.
