Art Gallery of Greater Victoria - Field Trips in British Columbia
On the same day as going to Craigdarroch Castle, we visited the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria with our Pass it Around Victoria passes.
The main reason for going to the art gallery was to see the Emily Carr exhibit. We didn't know that several of her paintings had been removed and are now in London. Emily Carr seems to be taking London by storm right now in the world of art!
What was interesting was, they replaced the missing paintings with ones of her students and her contemporaries including Lawren Harris and several others.
We didn't have a docent for the whole gallery, but she did introduce us to Emily Carr and her life which was very interesting. She asked questions of the students and she gave information about how the paintings in the gallery reflected Emily Carr's life.
The rest of the gallery housed a video art exhibit and a wide range of Chinese and Japanese art.
