UNIVERSITY OF VICTORIA ART COLLECTIONS:
LEGACY ART GALLERY &
THE MALTWOOD PRINTS AND DRAWINGS GALLERY AT THE McPHERSON LIBRARY
Message from the Director
We are excited that renovations are underway at the Legacy Gallery
downtown and look forward to reopening in mid-June. While we haven't
confirmed the opening day at this point, we hope to make an announcement
in the next few weeks and welcome you to our first exhibitions. In the
large gallery we will feature Landscape & Identity, and in the small
gallery we will feature The Victoria Moderns: UVic and a Regional
Aesthetic. Both these exhibits emphasize the importance of place and
creativity in our west coast environment.
As part of our commitment to making the university's collections available to a
broad community audience, we are also moving the University Art
Collections staff to the Legacy Gallery and opening a classroom that
enables students to work with collections. We will be posting our opening
days and hours online, along with information on regular times at which
UVAC staff will also be working on-campus to install art and to provide
faculty and students with access to collections. We are particularly
pleased that Cindy Vance is joining our team as Collections Coordinator.

Gallery closed for construction.
Convergence/Divergence: Landscape and Identity on the West Coast
The depiction of the Canadian landscape has always been central to our national and
regional identities. This exhibit will explore how a selection of west coast Canadian
artists from diverse cultural backgrounds have used landscape painting as a means of
defining a sense of self, a sense of community or collective identity and a sense
of place. The selected works will show contrasting cultural beliefs and ways of
relating to the land on the west coast, focusing particularly on First Nations'
relationship to the land and that of settlers on the west coast of Canada.

In Her Own Words: Emily Carr, Myfanwy Pavelic, Katharine Maltwood
