The Vancouver Art Gallery boasts a permanent collection of more than 10,000 works and features the creations of well-known international and Canadian artists such as Emily Carr and Jeff Wall, alongside a rotating selection of travelling exhibitions. Currently, the gallery hosts the first and only drawing exhibit ever to travel from Paris's illustrious Musée d'Orsay, and the nearly 100-piece collection displays some of the finest 19th-century French art to creep over the borders of Gaul. Titled The Modern Woman, the exhibit features the work of Degas, Manet, Gauguin, and Renoir, among others, and addresses the artistic tides of the late 19th century as they began to migrate away from formal portraits and turned instead to snapshots of everyday life. On display through September 6, these ground-breaking artistic renderings reflect women's rapidly changing role in society at the time, with depictions of women wandering the streets in contemporary dress, casually dining in cafés, jogging on treadmills, and preening in the boudoir.

Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.

The inherent risks in cleaning and restoring windows are no threat to Gabriel Lawson and his team?after all, they've spent more than a decade as recreational rock-climbers. Today, they climb walls in an urban environment, scaling commercial and residential buildings alike to wash windows as the WCB?covered, bonded, and Alberta Construction Safety Association?compliant technicians of Men At Heights Inc. They even channel mountain-climbing skills into their techniques: rather than relying on scaffolding and man lifts, the technicians use durable, lightweight industrial ropes and execute rappelling moves to access high and hard-to-reach places. Once in the air, they eliminate dirt and grime with handheld steam cleaners, rendering windows clean and free of streaks that rags and tongues can leave behind. They tackle additional debris with vacuums and gentle microfibre brushes. Though their window-washing methods often don't require more than water, they call upon biodegradable plant-based cleaning products to make frames and sills sparkle. And the men also power wash homes and walkways, repair signs, and restore glass.
