  • Emily Carr: Fresh Seeing Gallery Tour

    In 1911, Carr visited France, where she charted new ground as a modernist painter. Time spent at her canvas and encounters with international artists changed her forever. When she returned to BC, her painting style had been transformed. This exhibition investigates Carr’s momentous journey to France that broke the bonds of her conservative art training.
