A Series of Lectures by Robert Amos

Robert Amos, Victoria's beloved art historian, presents a
lavishly-illustrated series of Sunday afternoon lectures on some
of our most important artists.

Fully Booked! September 16 - Emily Carr. This unique insight into the work of Carr presents her as a painter of Victoria. From her childhood pen sketches to her last work at Mt. Douglas, you’ll see her paintings in a new light.

Fully Booked! September 23 - Margaret Peterson. This artist is not well-known, yet through her years teaching at Berkeley and after 1951 when she lived in Victoria, Peterson created some of the most powerful work ever painted here. Extensively collected by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and the University of Victoria, Peterson’s work is a revelation.

A few remaining seats available! September 30 - Elza Mayhew. Mayhew was the leading sculptor of her generation and her monumental bronzes grace the University of Victoria, the Provincial Archives and the sculpture court at Winchester Galleries in Oak Bay. Her position as one of the Limners group of artists will be considered.

Fully Booked! Saturday, October 13 - Walter J. Phillips. Phillips brought the technique of the Japanese colour woodcut print to Canada and made an extensive and well-loved series of views of Canada’s west. Amos will provide background on colour woodcuts of Japan, and trace Phillips’ career during his years in Britain, Winnipeg, Banff and, in the end, Victoria
