Explore Winter on the West Coast with art-making inspired by Carr and her contemporaries. Family Sundays occur on the third Sunday of the month, October through April. Hands-on activities and special guided tours give children and their families opportunities to engage with art, and tools for ongoing discussion and appreciation of art in a fun and informal environment.
On the Edge of Nowhere includes a historical survey of Carr’s artistic career, featuring pieces in all the media and styles she explored and perfected. It will also focus on Carr’s influences and inspirations, such as European modern art, members of the Group of Seven artists, First Nations artists, Carr’s spirituality, and her interest in developing an art that speaks of her personal experience and her connection to the West Coast landscape.
Even though she described herself as an “isolated little old woman on the edge of nowhere” her work has an appeal that is universal in its expressive messages. With this exhibition, the AGGV is now the premiere destination on Vancouver Island to visit and learn about Emily Carr through her paintings.
