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.
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.

Maureen Faulkner. December 364, 2016. Watercolour on paper.
On January 1st, 2016, Prince George artist Maureen Faulkner committed to paint an artwork per day for the duration of the year. She determined the size of her paintings would increase by an inch in both height and length each month and that she would compose a piece of automatic writing to accompany each work. Faulkner shared her paintings digitally through her social media channels and invited followers of the project to mail her objects that she could feature in her paintings. This multidimensional body of work has been an exercise in commitment, daily reflection, and communication.
