PAUL WONG & ANN GOLDBERG ON FRED UNLEESHED
Fred Lee writes for the Vancouver Courier:
"HIGH ART: Works by acclaimed artists Gordon Smith, Fred Herzog and Douglas Coupland — whose solo exhibition “everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything” will be held at the Gallery this coming May — went for sale at the Vancouver Art Gallery’s premiere fundraiser. In total, 70 works were on the auction block at the Art Moves benefit, set to raise $1 million dollars. Chairs Lisa Turner and Bruce Wright, along with Honorary Chair Michael O’Brian welcomed more than 300 guests to the black-tie auction and gala. In support of exhibitions and educational programs at the Gallery, tickets to the posh party ranged from $500-a-ticket to $25,000-a-table.
