The exhibit primarily draws from the gallery’s permanent collection, but gives an expanded view of these women’s diverse creative practices. It shows the work of women in this region during the first four decades of the twentieth century.

Presented in conjunction with Carr’s paintings of forest interiors, are works by Indigenous creators such as Amy Cooper (Th’ewá:li), Mary Little (Nuu-chah-nulth), and Placida Wallace (Líl̓wat Nation).

The exhibition also features paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture by Vancouver-based artists such as Irene Hoffar Reid, Vera Weatherbie, Beatrice Lennie and Unity Bainbridge.
