Emily Carr in Dialogue with Mattie Gunterman

Students will explore the Vancouver Art Gallery’s extensive holdings of Emily Carr’s paintings in relationship to the photographs of Mattie Gunterman, both of whom showed their great affection for British Columbia’s landscape. Like Carr, Mattie Gunterman’s oeuvre reflected her direct engagement with the wilderness around her, which she documented with images of friends, campsites, trappers, prospectors, miners and day-to-day pioneer life.
