About Canadian Art Junkie:
This blog is a selection of painting, photography, illustration and other visual arts from Canada, about Canada or being exhibited in Canada (with an occasional can’t-be-missed post from elsewhere).
This painting by Emily Carr, which I love, is the quintessential example of the art that many Canadians grew up with. We saw the Group of Seven in school halls and public buildings. But there wasn’t much focus on other movements.
Today, the selection is astounding, and the art of Canada goes well beyond the still-beloved Group of Seven.
Let me know if there’s an artist or gallery or show you think is missing. And see Need to Know for a list of quick hit posts on events across Canada.
