The Artists’ Co-Op is a not-for-profit society that serves artists ranging form emerging to established. Its mission is to provide opportunities for artists to meet, learn and teach each other, all within an environment that is supportive and inclusive. Featuring work by twelve members of the Artist’s Co-Op, All Things New brings together a selection of paintings that are inspired by nature, and honour the beauty inherent in the natural world. Be it a newly sprung mushroom, a fast flowing river, or a mighty grizzly bear defending its territory, these paintings represent the return of new life and vitality after a long winter.

Canadian Visionary

Lawren Harris

A member of the Group of Seven, Lawren Stewart Harris (1885–1970) was one of the most important figures in the history of Canadian art. After settling in Vancouver in 1940, he was a central figure in the artistic life of British Columbia. Through both his life and work, Harris helped establish an identity for Canadian art and was a driving force in the development of modernist painting. This exhibition focuses on artwork from between 1906 and 1960 and includes artwork on paper, oil sketches and paintings.

Lawren Harris: Canadian Visionary is organized and circulated by the Vancouver Art Gallery with the generous support of the Killy Foundation and is curated by Ian M. Thom, Senior Curator-Historical, Vancouver Art Gallery.

Kim Stewart: Indian Chief, 2017. Digital print on paper.

INJUN-uity, or Growing Up Pop

Kim Stewart

Métis artist Kim Stewart from Prince George explores stereotypes of Indigeneity and examines how representations of it in popular media influenced her own sense of self. Using a broad range of media including video, digital prints, beadwork and installation work, Stewart reconciles childhood stories and memories of play alongside pop cultural references of Indigenous culture. Her work considers the depth to which stereotypes can permeate ones identity and influence a sense of self.

Standing Split

Standing Split

David Jacob Harder

A circle of logs standing on their ends, pointed towards the sky, recalls the forests that surround the city of Prince George. David Jacob Harder constructed this sculptural-installation using a single fir tree that has been sectioned and sawed in half. The interior of the logs face outward, exposed, while the rounded-bark-covered side faces inward, hidden from initial view. At the center of artwork is a wooden bench that can be accessed through an opening in the circle. From the vantage point of the bench, the work appears to shield one from the surrounding urban environment. As much as Standing Split may function as a space for solitude, it also represents an investigation into the relationship between the forest and the city.
