Polygon Gallery Now Open - North Vancouvers Best Event Space


Coast Mountain Photography partners with The Polygon Gallery – just opened.

North Vancouver’s waterfront has been partially industrial place in years gone by.  With recent redevelopments including new hotels, condominiums, shops and more, the bottom of Lonsdale is becoming the place to be on the North Shore.  And now a real game changer – The Polygon Gallery.  

The Polygon Gallery is the new home of Presentation House Gallery.  PHG has had an illustrious 40 year history that has led up to this new beginning.  PHG was an art gallery in an older home on Chesterfield – far too small and run down to support an immense and growing collection.  With the vision of a renewed lower Lonsdale business area and waterfront upgrades, the new Polygon Gallery has just opened its doors.

The Polygon Gallery will expand on the organizations long history of presenting the work of artists who respond to the transformations taking place in the world.  It is a public cultural facility operated by the BC Photography and Media Arts Society, a federally registered charity.

Designed by renowned Patkow Architects (also of Audain Art gallery fame in Whistler), this modern transformation along North Vancouver’s waterfront completes the space between Tap & Barrel’s ‘The Shipyards’ Restaurant and Lonsdale Quay.  With an impressive view over the water of downtown Vancouver and a clean modern event space available for rentals, this Gallery is sure to be the best place in North Vancouver for a special event.

And Coast Mountain Photography is pleased to announce our role a ‘Preferred Event Photographers’ for the new Polygon Gallery.  Working close with Event rentals manager Faye Bednarczyk, we’ve been helping cover the Grand opening events and helping build their business and event promotional image file.  
Events shot so far at Polygon Gallery include their annual Art Auction Gala (this year ceremoniously named First Night), an event we have covered for years but always in a different location. We also shot the VIP Grand Opening, the Cedar Rope Cutting event and ceremony, and their Events Industry night, where they introduced the new Gallery to the primary tour and travel planners from Vancouver and beyond.  

It has been my pleasure getting to know the team at Coast Mountain Photography during our series of opening events at The Polygon Gallery. We have a complete bank of images celebrating our opening events, donors and special guests and facility features thanks to Brad and his professional colleagues. We are delighted to have Coast Mountain Photography as a preferred photographer of the Gallery’s Venue Rental Program for corporate events and know they will busy into 2018!

Here is a photographic introduction to the dynamic art and architectural space from these recent events.
