November 3, 2015.

by Michelle Sproule | The main objective of this website is to scout out and promote the things that make Vancouver such a sweet place to be. We do this with an emphasis on the city’s independent spirit to foster a sense of connectedness within and between our communities, and to introduce our readers to the people who grow and cook our food, play the raddest tunes in our better venues, create our most interesting art, and design everything from what we wear to the spaces we inhabit. The Scout List is our carefully considered, first rate agenda of super awesome things that we’re either doing, wishing that we could do, or conspiring to do this week. You can also check it out in the Globe & Mail, from our calendar to theirs…and yours!

PHOTOGRAPHY | Dig the look of artist Wade Comer’s ‘Time Passages’ photography series. Opening at Make Gallery this Thursday night, the shots are fluid, long-exposure beauties split into two series: “Mountains” and “Cities”. From Make: “Taken from the decks of passenger ferries in motion as they pass along their routes, Comer essentially paints with the camera. ‘Mountains’ is a series compiled from a year and a half of travelling aboard the various BC Ferries; contrastingly, ‘Cities’ is a series that includes images from Istanbul, New York, Toronto, and Vancouver.” Like watching the world spin by from the window of a car or the deck of a boat, the movement in these images allows your mind to open and become part of a journey — sometimes it’s the artist’s, and sometimes it’s your own. This show continues at Make through December 3.
Opening Nov 5 | 7pm | Make (257 E 7th Ave) | DETAILS

WATCH | The National Film Board of Canada presents Hadwin’s Judgement at Vancity Theatre, November 6-12. Through interviews and dramatized reenactments, the viewer is led to wonder whether or not Hadwin was emotionally or physiologically stable when he carried out his one-man crusade against the organized destruction of great temperate rainforests of BC. The film also hints at the possibility that Hadwin might have been one of the few who understood with appropriate clarity the critical importance of maintaining a connection to the natural world through conservation. Based on the award-winning book The Golden Spruce by local author John Vaillant. John will be present at the screenings on November 9th and 10th for a post show Q&A. A beautiful film with an impactful message. Don’t miss it.
Nov 6-12 | Various times | Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour St) | $11 | DETAILS

EAT LOCAL | Although the last of the 2015 Summer Farmers Markets has come and gone, some of the bravest of the food producers gather their goods at Winter Farmers Markets to keep us well fed through the colder months. There are two markets to choose from this weekend. Head to the Nat Bailey Stadium parking lot on Saturday or skip over to the skatepark at the PNE on Sunday and load up on locally grown fruits and veggies as well as fresh bread, honey, dried fruits, and scores of other goodies. Bonus: farmers are awesome people and awesome people tend to make weekends better.
Sat, Nov 7 | 10am-2pm | Nat Bailey Stadium (4601 Ontario St) | DETAILS
Sun, Nov 8 | 10am-2pm | Hastings Skatepark, PNE (Renfrew and Hastings) | DETAILS

HOT TALKS | The Eastside Culture Crawl is just around the corner (November 19-22), but if you can’t stand the anticipation or are concerned that you won’t be able to fit in a visit to each of the over 400 artists participating in the crawl this year, you can hit two birds with one stone this Thursday night with a pre-crawl event at Hot Art Wet City Gallery. The Main Street gallery has assembled a cross-section of eight East Side artists (en Z Cooper, Jacqueline Robins, Renée MacDonald, M.A.Tateishi, Ross den Otter, Simone Richmond, Toby Barratt / Propellor Design, and Christina Norberg) to share bits of their creative processes in short “Show & Tell” talks, giving art enthusiasts a hint of what’s to come during the Crawl’s studio visits.
Thu, Nov 5 | 7pm | Hot Art Wet City Gallery (2206 Main St.) | $5 | DETAILS

FUSE | The Vancouver Art Gallery offers occasional breaks from the usual. These evenings – dubbed FUSE – offer music, live performance, DJs and art. Such a break happens this Friday night. The theme this time around is Transformation. Take in current exhibitions like Between Object and Action: Transforming Media in the 1960s and 70s; Embracing Canada: Landscapes from Krieghoff to the Group of Seven; the works of Korean artist Lee Bul; Jerry Pethick’s Shooting the Sun/Splitting the Pie; as well as photographs by the always charming and exceedingly talented Christos Dikeakos). Bonus: you can also check out the Herzog & de Meuron conceptual design for the new VAG. Basically, it’s a crash course in art appreciation with a glass of wine in hand, plus there’s something immeasurably magical about wandering an art gallery after hours.
Fri, Nov 6 | 8pm–1am | Vancouver Art Gallery (750 Hornby St.) | $20 | DETAILS

LEARN | This is mushroom season. Specimens are popping up everywhere – on lawns, in forests, near buildings, and in fields. If you’re curious about what you are seeing, consider taking an exploratory walk through UBC’s campus with some of the mushroom-savvy staff of the Beaty Biodiversity Museum. Learn about the characteristics that identify some of our regions most common fungi and get schooled on the critically important differences between poisonous and edible species. This walk is appropriate for adults and families with kids, but everyone should wear appropriate clothing as it can get wet and muddy out there.
Sat, Nov 7 | 1pm | Beaty Biodiversity Museum (2212 Main Mall, UBC) | DETAILS

FRAUD | From paintings and drawings to Greek statues and Buddhist bronzes, counterfeit works of art are not uncommon among the legitimate collections of museums and galleries. With craftsmanship so fine that some objects may remain falsely validated to this day, the science and practice of determining provenance and detecting fakes is critical. Head to SFU on Saturday afternoon to hear Asian art expert Dr. Donald M. Stadtner speak about some of the most notorious cases of “Fakes, Fortunes and Fraudsters.” This illustrated presentation examines a handful of unresolved cases from India, Burma, and Cambodia, and suggests ways to spot fakes and practical steps to form a collection.
Sat, Nov 7 | 2pm | SFU Harbour Centre (515 West Hastings St)| Free | DETAILS

RENDER | The Vancouver International Music Video Festival takes place this weekend. While Render has plenty of respect for music, the focus of the festival is nevertheless on the visuals of the music video genre. From event organizers: “The music video is often seen as a supplement to the music in the video: Render turns this understanding upside-down, championing the videos, the work that goes into them and the people who make them.” Expect art, innovation, talent, and 25 music videos from 11 countries including Japan, Germany, UK, France, Hungary, Norway, Portugal, USA and Canada. The opening gala goes down Friday night, followed by screenings and live music. Saturday brings an artist’s talk with a panel of four directors.
Nov 6,7 | Various times | Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour St) | $11 | DETAILS

INDULGE | Cornucopia 2015 kicks off this week and carries through until the 15th. With a sweet line up of educational wine seminars, multi-course dinners, huge tasting events, after-parties and some wellness workshops to balance all of the indulgence out, there is more than enough to keep you busy for a weekend, a full week or – if you’re super keen – a really amazing 10 days. While some events are free, most are ticketed and have the annoying habit of selling out, so book yours on the quick. Whistler throws a heck of a food and wine festival and we don’t want you to miss out!
Nov 5-15 | Various locations throughout Whistler | DETAILS

TASTE | Finish your weekend on a low-key and tasty note with a four-course Discovery Dinner at South Granville’s Grapes & Soda. With a reputation for celebrating the freshest of local ingredients, theses dinners take it a step further by not only incorporating a theme designed to showcase the best of what’s available, but also by broadening “the horizons and palates” of diners by narrowing the focus on a “unique ingredient, wine, spirit or geographical region.” This Sunday, the theme is farmhouse cheese. Expect Executive Chef Ron Shaw, Sommelier Hao-Yang Wang, and Bar Manager Satoshi Yonemori to deliver a flavourful and inspiring evening. Tickets are $35. Drink pairings of wine, beer, cocktails, cider or spirits available for each course are an optional and highly encouraged add on.
Sun, Nov 8 | 6:30pm | Grapes & Soda (1541 West 6th) | DETAILS
