Paƛšiʔaƛma (The Fire is Just Starting)
is a new work by Port Alberni artists Rodney Sayers and Emily Luce. Constructed from local, rough-cut cedar and fir from two Port Alberni mills, the artists re-sawed and dressed their material before incorporating it into their beautifully considered and executed design.
Recent Asian Art Acquisitions
Patronage of the arts is a very noble act. Throughout its history, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria has received a remarkable number of Asian art donations, which in terms of numbers is now approximately 43-44% of the entire collection.
Case Studies: Decorative Art from the Collection
Case Studies provides an opportunity to examine some of the remarkable objects of material culture in the Gallery’s collection. An exhibition in the form of an experiment, a wide range of decorative art will be displayed, and in each display case, a different element – such as artist or maker, colour, form, geography or function – will serve as the organizing device.
Emily Carr and the Young Generation
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.
