‘On the Curve’ talk at Victoria art gallery

October 4, 2019

Guest Speaker Janet Nicol: “On the Curve:  The Life and Art of Sybil Andrews”

FRIDAY OCT 11 | 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Join the Gallery Associates in the Spencer Mansion and enjoy a lively and informational talk with Janet Nicol about the life and art of British-Canadian artist Sybil Andrews. Known for her bold linocut prints, Sybil Andrews was a professional female artist during the late 20th century, a distinctly male-dominated world. She is now recognized as one of Canada’s most prominent artists of the time.

Inspired by the working-class community of Campbell River where she lived, her art is known for its honest depiction of ordinary people at work and play on Canada’s West Coast.

Books available for sale from the Gallery Shop.

Presented in collaboration with the Associates of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and Caitlin Press.

*Please note that there is limited space available.
