Art BC presents -- in full colour -- 100 outstanding works by 84 of British Columbiaís foremost artists. Finally, we have the much-needed history of the visual arts in British Columbia, one that also properly integrates our great heritage of First Nations art into the mainstream. In the introduction, Ian M. Thom outlines the art history of the province over the past century. He also writes clearly and thoughtfully about each work individually, setting it in context to reflect the times in which it was made, describing the artistís achievements, and placing the artist and the work into the art history of British Columbia.
