    Spanning gap between form and function - review By Peter Birnie, Vancouver Sun
    CONNEXIONS
    Ferry Building Gallery, West Vancouver to Oct. 19
    Arnt Arntzen's furniture art spans the gap between form and function. Richard Tetrault is enjoying another banner year as a popular painter and perhaps our region's best-known muralist. Together they're building bridges.

    Connexions is a show about those enormous structures we stitch together in steel to carry us over waters, troubled or otherwise. The exhibition at the Ferry Building Gallery in West Vancouver, opening today and running to Oct. 19, also pays tribute to the people who build our bridges, and especially the men who lost their lives in the Second Narrows Bridge disaster.

    Today we call it the Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Bridge because on June 17, 1958, 19 people were killed during construction of the cantilever structure. When sections of the bridge suddenly collapsed and threw dozens of workers into the water, 18 men drowned. Later a diver also died during the rescue attempt.
