Commuters, residents and visitors travelling along No. 3 Road can enjoy a new art exhibition near the Aberdeen and Lansdowne Canada Line stations. The work of artists Andrew Talbot, Emily Lau and Susan Taylor have been installed in the large, backlit display cases at the base of three concrete support columns and will be on view until July 31. This exhibition was produced in partnership with the Richmond Arts Coalition and highlights work by Richmond artists.

Andrew Talbot's paintings at Lansdowne Station present a vibrant celebration of Richmond's wildlife expressed as a harmonious composition of multiple layers converging into a unified whole.

Emily Lau's digital paintings, also at Lansdowne Station, celebrate the diversity and beauty of individual stories and contributions made by Richmond residents' and visitors' day-to-day lives.

Susan Taylor's photographs at Aberdeen Station explore the complexity of lines and nets within the culture of fishing, towing and other water-based activities. The intricate structures of the nets can be transformed into a terrible beauty when, as ghost gear—damaged and abandoned—they can snare marine life.

This exhibition is the first of a two-part, year-long showcase by artists who have created work highlighting Richmond's local culture, history and natural heritage. The next exhibition (Aug. 1 - Jan. 31, 2025) will feature other engaging and place-based work by Richmond artists.

The No. 3 Road Art Columns Program was launched in 2010 as part of the city's commitment to enhance the No. 3 Road streetscape, in partnership with the Appia Group of Companies and InTransit BC. Since then, the program has featured the work of dozens of local artists with two rotating exhibitions a year.
