Artist notes: Standing defiantly alone, whipped by wind and rain and then sun bleached in the Southern Gulf Island’s summer sun, this small red and white building breaks the horizon with purpose.

In one of Canada’s National Park Reserves sits the Fog Alarm Building at East Point on Saturna Island. Built in 1938 as part of the East Point Light Station, the Fog Alarm Building housed the engine to blow the fog horn. This tiny white-and-red building has been restored and now holds a museum run by community volunteers in the summer. In 2013, the Fog Alarm Building was designated under the Heritage Lighthouse Protection Act.
