Vancouver Art Gallery

April 15, 2014

You are invited to join us on an art tour to see:

Lawren Harris: Canadian Visionary | A Terrible Beauty: Edward Burtynsky

The Vancouver Art Gallery is currently showcasing the work of two of Canada’s most celebrated artists - the boldly stylized early 20th century paintings of Group of Seven founding member Lawren Harris, and the stunning 21st century environmental impact photographs of Edward Burtynsky. One of Harris’s sketchbooks, which reflects his transition to a non-representational expression of the spiritual, is also on view for the first time. We will have a one-hour guided tour of the Harris Exhibit, starting at 1pm. There will be 2 - 2.5 hours free time following the tour to visit the Edward Burtynsky exhibition and the rest of the Gallery and browse the excellent gift shop.
