Just in time for Remembrance Day, visit the North Vancouver City Library tonight between 7 and 8:30 p.m. for a short film and presentation, entitled Gambare: Experiences of Japanese Canadians, about the history of Canadians of Japanese descent prior to and during the Second World War.

This is your last weekend to check out Such Stuff As Dreams at the Ferry Building Gallery in West Vancouver. The exhibition, which showcases the dreamy and surreal works of Bowen Island painter Andrea Klann, will feature more than a dozen paintings that explore her interest in conjuring up worlds that toe the line between the imagined and the real. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
