Exploring the Art of the Canadian Rockies
For the last twenty years, Lisa Christensen has been following in the footsteps of Canada’s finest artists. Some of these adventures have been chronicled in her published trail guides, others are still part of an unfolding life’s work. Join her for an illustrated talk discussing the art of A.Y. Jackson and Lawren Harris that depicts the mountains of Jasper National Park. These two iconic painters visited the region in 1924 and have left a legacy of on-the-spot and studio paintings that take us back with them on their historic trip. Christensen will also discuss images from other artists depicting other parks, as well as highlights from some of Canada’s finest beauty spots as captured by our most revered Canadian artists.
