Tour of Vancouver Art Gallery exhibit Uninvited: Canadian Women Artists in the Modern Moment
November 23, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Members & Guests Welcome
Do you love the Art Gallery, but sometimes feel you need a little more information about the exhibits to truly appreciate them? If so, the Education Committee is inviting you to join us for a private guided tour of the exhibit Uninvited: Canadian Women Artists in the Modern Moment.
Join us at the Vancouver Art Gallery for a tour of this major exhibition, which includes more than 200 works of art by a generation of extraordinary painters, photographers, weavers, bead workers and sculptors. Focusing on the period from 1920 to 1940 and organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, we will see the work of women from all parts of our nation as they respond to a period of dramatic and sometimes traumatic change. While settler women artists in this group did create landscape paintings — similar to their male counterparts like the Group of Seven—they were also interested in the human experience and psychology, industrialization, urbanization, indigenous culture and displacement and the immigrant experience. They often captured the dramatic changes of their era, such as shifting female roles and freedoms.
