Edith Heath and Emily Carr : From the Earth

Contributors:  Bruce Grenville, Jay Stewart and Jennifer M. Volland

Edith Heath and Emily Carr: From the Earth brings together the work of two artists who had a mutual understanding of the land as the source and meaning of their art. Both found a deep inspiration in the landscape—its colours, light, materials—returning again and again to sites that inspired their creativity and defined their practices.
