Ellen Vaughan Grayson, Cousen’s Bay, Kalamalka Lake, Okanagan Valley, BC (detail), n.d., oil on canvas board, 24 x 30 in. Collection of the Kelowna Art Gallery. Gift of David and Carolyn Grayson, 1999.
Through Her Eyes presents works by female artists that focus on landscape and the environment. Created between the 1930s and the present, and representative of the collecting practices of the Kelowna Art Gallery, the exhibition examines the particular perspective that women bring to painting and drawing. Most of the works shown were created in and around Kelowna, demonstrating the rich history of landscape painting in the region, and the contribution that female artists made to the genre of historical and contemporary landscape painting in British Columbia.
Through Her Eyes: Works from Our Permanent Collection is guest curated by Corinna Ghaznavi, a freelance curator and writer based in Durham, Ontario.
