To celebrate the Vancouver Art Gallery’s enormously popular exhibition Emily Carr: Deep Forest, the Gallery is pleased to introduce a special $10 admission throughout the month of February.

Featuring thirty remarkable forest-themed paintings from the Gallery’s permanent collection, Deep Forest has received an abundance of enthusiastic feedback from the public since it opened four weeks ago. Painted around the 1930s, these works of art were so profoundly radical at the time that they reshaped how the forest was perceived in British Columbia.

Regular visitors will receive a complimentary exclusive Emily Carr print, regularly retailed at $35, with admission. Gallery members will receive 40% off select Emily Carr merchandise in the Gallery Store during the same period.

The Month of Emily Carr at the Gallery will be enriched by a special artist talk to showcase the remarkable legacies of Emily Carr in relation to the exhibition Deep Forest.

Talk by artist Philippe Raphanel
February 18, 7pm, In the Gallery
