They have a great selection of rare and off beat books alongside best sellers.  We recently learnt they also have a great gallery upstairs.  It is currently featuring a collaborative collection of street photography that celebrates the artistry and grit of East Vancouver while capturing stillness in a world full of transient moments.

The exhibit is presented by Irish-born, Canadian residents Laura Noonan and Tara Mary Paget, through place-specific street photography, Meet me at the Lamp(p)ost revolves around the present and promotes contentment in self and place. Laura and Tara founded Meet me at the Lamp(p)ost in 2016, they are self-taught lens-based artists, focused predominately on exploring the landscape, people and architecture that make up East Vancouver. They chose Massy Books as a place to display their work for its quirky and artsy nature and its community space that enables people to connect. Meet Me At The Lamp(p)post is on now until July 10, 2018 during regular hours, being 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday to Wednesday and 10:00 am to 8:00 pm Thursday to Sunday.

Foto Friday – Record Number of Dogs In Foster With Vancouver BC SPCA

13 May

VanSPCAFostersAs those that follow us regularly know, we are big supporters of the BC SPCA and the work they do. We regularly feature pets waiting for adoption and often they are ones that are a bit harder to place.  In today’s Foto Friday we are featuring a collage of pets that have been patiently waiting for some time in foster for their forever home.  We have learnt that the Vancouver BC SPCA currently has a record number of canines in foster care.  Since they are not in the shelter, they are not as visible to those looking for a pet, but of course just as deserving of that forever home.  As of today’s writing, each of one of the dogs pictured is still waiting.   So today we’d like to give them some virtual love to help them find what they so need and deserve. If you would like more information about any one of these dogs, you can find more information on their website at Vancouver BC SPCA, 1205 East 7th Avenue. You can also reach them by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. They will be more than happy to arrange a visit for you.  As always, we welcome any shares.

Foto Friday – Collaboration of Art & Beer At Callister Brewing

19 Feb

IMG_3178If you follow us regularly, you may know we love our East Van community and aspire to inspire that sense of community.  So with that in mind, in today’s Foto Friday, we would like to give a shout out to Callister Brewing. As well as being one of East Van’s newer breweries, it is also a collaborative brewery which features 4 brewers under one roof, being Callister Brewing, Machine Ales, Brewery Creek & Real Cask Brewing. Basically it’s a commissary for beer makers and on talking to some of the brewers recently, you really get a sense of the collaboration amongst them which is quite prevalent in the craft beer community as a whole.  Callister Brewing, outside of making great beer, also collaborates with artists and features work curated by Lee and Bon Roberts. You will also see their art featured amongst the walls. Originally from East Van, they now live on the Sunshine Coast but collaborate to bring other artists work into the brewery to showcase. No commission changes hands, it’s purely a collaboration in its purest form.  So today, we would like to feature some photos of the art work currently up on the walls of Callister Brewing. Note, all the pieces are for sale. To see them in person, pop by for a beer and see them first hand.

Yes affordability is one issue, but the other is a sense of community, knowing your neighbours and that feeling of belonging. There are, of course, many things that make East Van a great place in addition to community. There is also the culture, art, community based festivals, shopping, live music, the growing craft beer industry, the amazing selection of restaurants and coffee shops and the list goes on.

Kyrani is a professional photographer living in East Vancouver with her husband and twin 8 year old boys. She has featured many local personalities, musicians as well as movers and shakers. What she loves is East Van and as many have said the sense of community she feels living in this area of Vancouver.   So what does East Van mean to you? We’d love to see your photos.
