Expanding Horizons: Painting and Photography of American and Canadian Landscapes exhibition
The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts' exhibition Expanding Horizons: Painting and Photography of American and Canadian Landscape 1860-1918, which will be travelling to the Vancouver Art Gallery, is a spectacular assemblage of some of the best landscape art and photography of its period. Except for Emily Carr whose earliest explorations of Northwest Coast First Nations villages are included, none of the Canadian photographers or artists lived west of Ontario. The Museum's Web site includes every artwork and photograph in the show, so it's well worth exploring. The Museum is also encouraging on-site and remote visitors to share their own comments and photographs of American and Canadian landscapes.
