We Are Now Open For The Season!
Emily Carr House, is a National and Provincial Historic Site located at 207 Government Street in Victoria, B.C. Canada. The birthplace of the internationally renowned Emily Carr, we are an interpretive centre dedicated to her art, writings and life.
We welcome you to come and learn more about this famous Canadian artist and writer by touring the beautifully appointed and restored rooms of her childhood home. Throughout the season we will be hosting contemporary art exhibitions- look for details under Events. If you are like Emily and love animals you may be lucky enough to encounter our Carr House Cats! Check out their adventures on our blog posting. Our gift shop is stocked with all of Emily’s beautifully vivid narratives, including her Governor award winning book, Klee Wyck. We also, have a fine selection of her poster and print images.
This season we will be screening film maker and artist, Jill Sharpe’s award winning film
BONE, WIND, FIRE.
This feature film is an intimate and evocative journey into the hearts, minds and eyes of Georgia O’Keeffe, Emily Carr and Frida Kahlo – 3 of the 20th century’s most remarkable artists. The film uses the women’s own words, taken from their letters and diaries, to reveal 3 individual creative processes in all their subtle and fascinating variety.
