July 1, 2016 - November 13, 2016
12:00 am - 12:00 am at Vancouver Art Gallery, 750 Hornby Street, Vancouver, BC

The Vancouver Art Gallery's upcoming exhibit, I Had an Interesting French Artist to See Me This Summer: Emily Carr and Wolfgang Paalen in British Columbia, will be on display between July 1 to November 13, 2016.

This first pairing of the Modernist painters Wolfgang Paalen (1905–1959) and Emily Carr (1871–1945) will tell the story of how the artists met in Victoria, British Columbia, in 1939, and how the creative vision of each expanded in reaction to the majestic landscape of British Columbia and the monumental art of the Northwest Coast First Nations. With artworks assembled from public and private collections internationally, the exhibition will present early works, ancillary archival materials and the audacious later work of both artists as they moved toward their transcendent visions. 

Please visit the Vancouver Art Gallery's website here for more information.

On exhibit until September 2016: Emily Carr and the Young Generation at
September 11, 2016
Featured Titles: From the Forest to the Sea
12:00 am at Graham Gallery, 1040 Moss Street, Victoria, BC

As one of Canada’s most renowned artists, Carr is famous not only for her stunning landscapes, but also for her reputation as a nomadic, solitary artist. Emily Carr and the Young Generation celebrates a new vision of the iconic Victoria artist as both mentor and teacher, lending ideas and influence to a new generation of local artists.

During the 1930s and 1940s, Carr’s studio became a destination for young Victoria artists who sought her for instruction, mentorship and conversation. While the older artist’s relationships were often complex and sometimes tense, Carr’s impact on their work is undeniable.

Experience the revered painter’s work alongside the work of this new generation, including work from Ina D.D. Uhthoff, Edythe Hembroff-Schleicher, Max Maynard, Myfanwy Pavelic and Jack Shadbolt. Held at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's Graham Gallery, curated by Michelle Jacques
