Image showing construction at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery near the end of the 1987 expansion.
Notes:
The gallery was incorporated in 1969 with name of Robert, founder of The McLaughlin Carriage Company, grandfather of Ewart, and father of Col. R.S.(Sam) McLaughlin (General Motors of Canada).
The original gallery was built in 1969 on its present location under the guidance of architect Hugh Allward of Allward & Gouinlock.

In 1987, a $5.4 million dollar expansion was commissioned and Arthur Erickson. Erickson built his design around the existing structure, incorporating the original stone façade into the dramatic lobby design which is flooded with natural light, skylights and soaring 35 foot ceilings.
