When world-famous artist Robert Bateman found time in his hectic schedule to attend the opening of the Westside Gallery in Vancouver, it was an opportunity the gallery owner couldn’t pass up. But it also meant pulling together a gala party on short notice. Bright Ideas Event Coordinators was up for the challenge, highlighting the gallery’s luxurious, flexible event space.
Ever gracious, the acclaimed naturalist and painter spent most of the evening signing the complimentary calendars each guest received upon arrival, taking a moment to chat with each person, and pose for a photograph. Delicious appetizers and wine were also well-received by one and all, but the highlight of the evening, was the short talk Mr. Bateman gave, explaining his creative process, the highlights of his career, and the motivation behind his passion.
”Most children can identify over a thousand corporate logos,” said Bateman, noting most young people don’t have the same expertise when it comes to understanding the world’s endangered species. While the loss of species might seem a depressing topic, Bateman delivered a hopeful message nonetheless, helping the audience to understand how individuals can have a positive impact.
