An exhibition of works from the Vancouver Art Gallery’s permanent collection places Emily Carr’s paintings in conversation with Edward Burtynsky’s photographs to explore both artists’ depictions of changing natural and industrial landscapes. A Terrible Beauty: Edward Burtynsky in Dialogue with Emily Carr is curated by Bruce Grenville at The Kelowna Art Gallery.
