HOPE AT DAWN
Watercolours by Emily Carr and Charles John Collings

November 10, 2012 to May 26, 2013
Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery
Curated by Ian Thom, Senior Curator-Historical


Featuring a breathtaking collection of watercolours by eminent painters Emily Carr and Charles John Collings,
Hope at Dawn offered two distinct views of the captivating British Columbia landscape. While the artists’ works
are remarkably different — Carr’s work is firmly rooted in the real, while Collings’ images are largely from the
realm of imagination — both twentieth-century artists chose their home province as their subject matter and
used the watercolour medium as a vital part of their work.
Over the last forty years, Vancouver collector and gallery owner Uno Langmann has assembled a major
collection of work by Charles John Collings. This exhibition marked an opportunity to present a large selection
of donated works from this significant collection.
ARTISTS: Emily Carr, Charles John Collings


Visionary Partner: Michael O’Brian Family Foundation
