Through the Looking Glass: F.H.Varley in British Columbia
January 31, 2015 – January 10, 2016
Frederick Horsman Varley (1881-1969) was a founding member of the Group of Seven and one of Canada’s foremost portrait painters. Through the Looking Glass explores the rich landscapes of Varley’s British Columbia period; a productive time in Varley’s life during which his own individual style flourished. Also on view is a rotating selection of works from our permanent collection representing Western Canada.
