The Vancouver Sun: Tracy McMenemy's 'Songs of the Smoke'

SEAFORTHS SEEN: Bagpipes skirled in 1917 when Seaforth Highlanders of Canada troops fought and died in the Battle of Vimy Ridge. They sounded again recently when piper and South Main Gallery owner Don MacMillan opened Tracy McMenemy’s Songs of The Smoke exhibition. Its works couple past battlegrounds with details of the regiment’s Burrard Street armoury. The latter were derived from technical blueprints, as were those in McMenemy’s 2016 Maritime Museum exhibition, Ghost Passages of the McKenzie Shipyard. Some from that series enhance lobbies at Cates Landing, a condo development that art collector-gallerist-philanthropist Michael Audain’s Polygon firm built on the 85-year-old North Vancouver industrial facility’s waterfront site.
