Although Emily Carr described herself as an â€śisolated little old woman on the edge of nowhereâ€ť her work has an appeal that is universal in its expressive messages.
With this exhibition, the AGGV will become the premiere destination on Vancouver Island to visit and learn about Emily Carr through her paintings. On the Edge of Nowhere will include an historical survey of Carrâ€™s artistic career, featuring pieces in all the media and styles she explored and perfected. It will also focus on Carrâ€™s influences and inspirations, such as European modern art, members of the Group of Seven artists, First Nations artists, Carrâ€™s spirituality, and her interest in developing an art that speaks of her personal experience and her connection to the West Coast landscape.
