A valuable art history guide to the in-depth Unheralded Artists of BC series.

This small attractive full-colour book, will gather thirteen forgotten and accomplished artists from the acclaimed Unheralded Artists of BC series (ten books), in one place, for the first time. A summary of each artist’s life and art from the early 1900’s to the 1980s, will tempt art and history lovers to investigate the in-depth series more fully. In British Columbia between 1900 and the 1960s over 16,000 artists worked and lived. It was the height of an immense creative surge in the province. Beyond the handful of names of successful artists there is little documented evidence of the other artists of those times. Art was made invisible by socioeconomic or political forces and also by a lack of public galleries. “Those artists that worked the system got recognition and those that didn’t, disappeared from view.”–Lorna Farrell-Ward, former curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery
