Emily Carr’s 150th BirthdayDec 12 | 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The AGGV’s extensive permanent collection includes a substantial number of pieces by and related to Victorian icon Emily Carr, one of the most beloved Canadian modernist artists. Our current exhibition, Emily Carr: Seeing and Being Seen, coincides with the artist’s 150th birthday on Dec 13.
Emily Carr: Seeing and Being Seen is split into two sections. Half the gallery showing how she documented what was around her, highlighting many of the works she is praised and admired for today. The other half focuses on how artists and historians of various backgrounds and worldviews have, and continue to react to, and interpret her legacy and body of work.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to examine Carr’s legacy, and delve into the Gallery’s collection to explore 13 works by Carr including Odds and Ends, Big Eagle at Skidegate, Above the Gravel Pit, and more.
