EXHIBITIONS

 

VAG-2000wp

 
Until November 30, 2017
Presented at the Nanaimo Museum in partnership with Nanaimo Art Gallery
 
The travelling exhibition Lawren Harris: Canadian Visionary comes to Nanaimo on loan from Vancouver Art Gallery and presents key works from the Gallery's collection that follow Harris' artistic evolution from the early 1900s to the early 1960s, including paintings from the groundbreaking Group of Seven period and later experiments in abstraction that reflect his efforts to root his work in a universal language rather than a specific national landscape. 
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.

Nanaimo Art Gallery presents Spectral Tides, a solo exhibition of new work by renowned Korean born Canadian artist Jin-me Yoon. Through video, photography, and installation, Spectral Tides features projects set on two islands that are important to the artist's life and work: Vancouver Island, focusing on the complex histories of the Pacific Rim National Park, and Jeju-do, the largest South Korean island and a strategic US military outpost.
This project is presented as a part of Nanaimo Art Gallery’s celebration of our 40th anniversary in 2017. All year, through exhibitions, special projects, education programs and events, we explore the question “What does it mean to live on an Island?”
