Stone & Sky Canada's Mountain Landscape showcases over 100 important Canadian artworks that were on display at the Audain Art Museum in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada November 11, 2017 – February 26, 2018.
Through photographs, watercolours, drawings, paintings and prints, this exhibition highlights our Nation’s most celebrated artists, including Lawren Harris and members of the Group of Seven, Emily Carr, Toni Onley, Edward Burtynsky, John Hartman, Takao Tanabe and Ann Kipling. With over 100 works of art spanning 150 years of artistic production (1867–2017), this Canada 150 project by the Audain Art Museum explores how our artists have interacted with the monumentality and vastness of mountain vistas over time. Questioning and reflecting on humanity’s engagement with these icons of the Canadian psyche provides a unique opportunity in which to consider the idea of nationhood and how physical landmarks define us as a people.
