Holiday Window at Lonsdale Gallery courtesy of George Boileau
Lonsdale Gallery closed for approximately two weeks over the holiday season. During this time, we wanted to leave on display a piece which would incite conversation about art. George Boileau’s sculpture “A History of Discourse” certainly did that.
In response to the questions we have received since its installation: Yes- the gun is a real .44 calibre, cap and ball, black powder revolver for its historical reference. The revolver has been officially deactivated and approved by the R.C.M.P.
