Work from the late South Surrey artist will be displayed.

Four galleries set to honour late artist

Robert Genn’s pieces to be featured at White Rock Gallery

Four galleries across the country will honour Robert Genn with an exhibition and sale of selected works from the internationally-acclaimed Canadian painter’s archives.

White Rock Gallery, Hambleton Gallery in Kelowna, Canada House in Banff, Alta., and Mayberry Fine Art in Toronto, Ont. will showcase the selected works from the late artist.

The four-gallery exhibit opens on Oct. 25 at 10 a.m. at White Rock Gallery and will include Genn’s widow, Carol Genn, as a special guest.

The South Surrey painter, best known for his works featuring the West Coast and the Rocky Mountains, passed away May 27 in his home, at the age of 78.

He had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October 2013.

Genn is survived by his wife and their children, Sara, David and James.
