Klee Wyck: Emily Carr and Indigenous People

KleeWyckCover 1941Good thing the Merrickville and District Historical Society does such a great job of getting the word out. I’m so busy working on the third volume of Emily Carr’s BC that I haven’t posted a word about this presentation. As requested by the organizers, I’ll be focusing on Emily’s relationship with Indigenous people as illustrated in her first book, Klee Wyck, and I’ll also be talking a bit about the settler experience she recorded in her second book, The Book of Small. Part of the Merrickville 225 celebrations. June 17, Merrickville Legion, 2 pm.

In Search of Emily Carr: Documentary Images & Photographic Art | Merrickville Public Library

2018-01 Library Show PosterDuring the five summers I traced and retraced the more than 20,000 kilometres of Emily Carr’s West Coast sketching trips, capturing images to include in my trilogy, Emily Carr’s BC, I also found subjects that spoke personally to me of the people and landscapes that so inspired Emily. These I’ve taken beyond the constraints of editorial photography to the realm of photographic art and included a selection with the documentary images on exhibition now at the Merrickville Public Library.

The show continues through January. Click Read More for library details.
