This trip to the Vancouver Art Gallery is the first of a series planned by the Gallery Associates to view new exhibitions shortly after they open. A large selection of Carr’s work will be presented, along with some of her lesser-known female contemporaries—including Beatrice Lennie, Nan Lawson Cheney, Irene Hoffer Reid, Grace Wilson Melvin, and Vera Weatherbie—together with baskets, cedar hats and cradle boards made at this time by Indigenous women—such as Amy Cooper, Mary Little and Gertrude Dick.
The exhibition was organized by VAG and curated by Grant Arnold, Audain Curator of British Columbia art.
The Emily Carr paintings, mostly from the 1930s, on exhibit and are primarily from the VAG Emily Carr Trust.
