    Our largest sponsorship EVER kicks off The Show at Emily Carr 2014

    The Emily Carr community, and those who enjoy the exciting cultural events we host, received an incredibly generous sponsorship gift recently from RBC Wealth Management. This gift means that not only will this year’s graduation exhibition be delivered and brilliantly supported (on from May 4th through 18th), but for the next five years all Emily Carr events will be backed by this presenting sponsorship.

    In 1981, Kate Bush and David Bowie rented a secluded mansion in a remote part of England to work on an album together. Over the course of one month, these two iconic figures lived and worked together, away from the limelight and pressures of their lives. Little is known of what became of this collaboration. Neither of them has ever spoken publicly about what happened during this time. Any recordings they made have never been heard.

    What's The Big Idea?

  • 2014-05-14 10:11

    Internationally acclaimed visual artist Etienne Zack graduated from the painting program in 2000. His work uses fictitious possibilities and historical moments that are staged into paintings reminiscent of fabricated environments.

    The annual Emily Award program is a celebration of the outstanding achievements of a member of the University alumni whose endeavours in the arts, media and design fields have brought honour to the University.

    A recipient of the prestigious RBC Painting Competition (2005), Etienne received the 2008 City of Montreal's Pierre-Ayot prize, and had his inaugural solo exhibition at Museum of Contemporary Art of Montreal, Canada in 2010.

    Polychrome Fine Art is presenting the second solo show of Canadian artist Ingrid Mary Percy ('95).

    Colourful, abstract, painted wood and paper surfaces are dissected and sliced into micro-stripes and reconstituted into cropped and ordered, hard-edge two dimensional and sculptural emblems. Pushed together to live with each other, the painterly bands are coerced into visual interplay that are charming and lush as well as awkward and discordant: characteristics that are allegorical of most beautiful relationships.
