Over 50 Emily Carr works in Whistler this fall!

September 21, 2019 – January 19, 2020 | Audain Art Museum

We’re in for a rare treat this fall as the Audain Art Museum welcomes Emily Carr: Fresh Seeing – French Modernism and the West Coast

“A bold undertaking by the Audain Art Museum focuses on the dramatic changes in Emily Carr’s approach to painting over the course of three critical years: 1910 to 1912. Emily Carr: Fresh Seeing – French Modernism and the West Coast investigates Carr’s momentous journey to France (1910-1911) that broke the bonds of her conservative art training.

The exhibition showcases the paintings, drawings, and watercolours that she produced in France, as well as the works she created upon her return to the West Coast of Canada in 1912. Drawn from national and international public, private and corporate collections, this exhibition provides a rare opportunity for AAM visitors to view over 50 paintings, watercolours, and drawings by Carr, along with a selection of works by Carr’s instructors whose work directly influenced her artistic development.” Find out more.
