About the event
Across the decades Avis Rasmussen has become known as a painter, printmaker, and poet. The selection of works in this sprawling survey will offer everything from sketches done in the 1950s to experimental prints from the 1970s to watercolours of the 1980s through to a linocut finished earlier this year. Gathered for the first time will also be work on loan from the University of Victoria's Legacy Art Gallery and Library's Special Collections, including an important oil on canvas painted at the internationally renowned Emma Lake Workshop in the 1990s. A publication of Rasmussen's new and selected poems and texts, edited by McFadden and co-published with the University of Victoria will be launched during the exhibit. For more information click here!
