Descend the grand staircase of the Vancouver Art Gallery and enter Monet's Secret Garden of Giverny for an unforgettable evening.
Proudly sponsored by CBC Vancouver and hosted by Andrew Chang, Monet's Secret Garden Summer Gala will include cocktails, an exclusive preview of Claude Monet's Secret Garden, as well as fine dining, special performances and fundraising auction.
Claude Monet's Secret Garden will present thirty-eight paintings spanning the course of Monet's long career from the unparalleled collection of the Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris. It will survey the diversity of subjects in his art, from the portrayal of modern life in his early figure studies to the inventive treatment of light in his scenes of the Parisian countryside and views of the River Thames. This series reveals Monet's astute and sustained visual exploration of plants and water. The Vancouver showing will be the only presentation of the exhibition in North America and will run June 24 to October 1, 2017 at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
