Mountains and Water: Visions of the Land in Canada and China

Every nation’s artists view their natural landscape as a source of inspiration to capture the spirit of their home. The rich traditions of landscape paintings by artists in Canada and China come together in Mountains and Water: Visions of the Land in Canada and China and illustrate how mountains and water have universally captured the imaginations of artists for centuries. All of the artworks presented in this exhibition belong to the University of Alberta Art Collection and the Mactaggart Art Collection of the University of Alberta Museums.

Mountains and Water: Visions of the Land in Canada and China is a special exhibition developed by the University of Alberta Museums and Collections dedicated to commemorate the opening of the Jonathan KS Choi Cultural Centre of Canada and honour the contributions made by Dr. Jonathan KS Choi to advance peace and prosperity between cultures and nations.
