Satisfy your thirst for visual arts

Variety of exhibitions ending Feb. 23 at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria

Visual art lovers looking to make a worthwhile gallery visit this month have a chance to experience a variety of exhibits, all ending Feb. 23 at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.

Here’s what you can see at each one:

Unformable Things: Emily Carr and Some Canadian Modernists

A presentation of work from the AGGV collection by legendary artist Emily Carr, along with Canadian peers such as Florence Helena McGillivray and David Milne. This exhibition explores the emergence of a form of art-making that Carr described as “the unformable things one wants to paint.”

Throw, Slip, Spin: Studio Ceramics from the AGGV Collection

An exploration of pottery, sculpture and other ceramic work that dates back to the Gallery’s early years, along with new acquisitions from exhibitions such as “Back to the Land and Life with Clay.”

Tender Works

Video works exploring the theme of tenderness through personal narratives: community activism and advocacy, the complexity and intimacy of family relationships, continuity of traditions and culture and honouring of peers and elders.

To Talk With Others

An exhibit by Yukon artists exploring and responding to an archival document: the minutes of a meeting in 1977 between Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and five Yukon First Nations leaders regarding the then-approved MacKenzie Pipeline. This work continues the conversation surrounding self-determination in the face of federal and corporate agendas.

Admission to the AGGV is $13 for adults, discounts for seniors, students, and youths aged 6-17.
