Our Exhibits

The Vancouver Art Gallery presents exhibitions of work by artists ranging from historic masters to leading-edge contemporaries. These include major thematic exhibitions, presentations of solo artists and smaller, more focused showcases. In a typical year, 2 to 3 exhibitions are borrowed from other institutions and 10 to 12 exhibitions are developed in-house, drawing on our permanent collection and loans of works from around the world. In addition, the Gallery tours a few of its exhibitions each year.

With works by some of the greatest names in European art, Of Heaven and Earth examines the thematic and stylistic developments in Italian art–from the religious paintings of the late Middle Ages and Renaissance to the secular neoclassical and genre paintings of the 19th century. The remarkable breadth of the exhibition showcases the outstanding quality of works by figures such as Giovanni Bellini, Sandro Botticelli, Domenichino, Francesco Guardi and Titian alongside other lesser-known masters.
