John Carr was a BC Firefighter who passed away over 15 years ago. His hobby, perhaps an obsession, was collecting art from all kinds of places, including yard sales and estates.
His widow, Betty Carr, donated 1,200 paintings to camp for the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund. The Langley Arts Council was honoured to raise funds for this cause. The campaign, which took place in 2014, was called “Fire & Art”.
