Drawing on her book, Art Inspired by the Canadian Rockies, Purcell Mountains and Selkirk Mountains, 1809-2012 (2012), Art historian Nancy Townshend will give an illustrated talk highlighting the many artists—from explorer David Thompson to Lawren Harris, A.C. Leighton, Peter Whyte, Maureen Enns and others-- who have been inspired by these majestic mountain ranges.

Speaker: Nancy Townshend

Nancy Townshend has an M.A. in Art History from the University of Toronto.
