Painting celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday

A painting by an Abbotsford resident is among those being showcased this weekend at western Canada’s largest art show, Art Vancouver.

Jeff Stackhouse’s piece is titled True Patriot Love and was created in honour of Canada 150 celebrations in 2017.

The painting premiered Thursday night during the Art Vancouver red carpet gala event at Canada Place. The show runs until Sunday at 5 p.m.

Stackhouse graduated from the University of the Fraser Valley with a bachelor of fine arts degree in 2014.

In addition to Art Vancouver, Stackhouse has been in several films, including Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, and has created artwork for Expo 86 and the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
