Exhibition: Garden of Earthly Delights

Thursday, September 15 - Friday, December 16

For over a decade, Vancouver’s en plein air group have painted together outdoors in the city’s most beautiful locations from Iona Beach, to Stanley Park, to the Cleveland Dam. Their favourite spot from which to glean inspiration is VanDusen Botanical Garden, beloved for its worldliness, enchantment, colours, textures and forms.

From September 15th to December 16th 2022, their new exhibition ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’, which features paintings of different areas and seasons at VanDusen, will be on display in the Yosef Wosk Library & Resource Centre. Come and view these gorgeous works in oil, watercolour, acrylic and mixed media from artists Susanne Kestner; Elahe Nour Bakhsh; Susan Morson; Riitta Peirone; Toni Ludski; Graham Good; Elizabeth Austin; and Margaret Lawther.

See these artworks at Roberta Mickelson Gallery in the Yosef Wosk Library (in the VanDusen Visitor Centre) 10.00am -3.00pm Monday – Wednesday until December 16.
