Emily Carr monument ‘appalling’

Alison MacKenzie says the proposed Emily Carr monument in Chemainus reminds her of a tacky black velvet painting from the 1970s.


I think the proposed Emily Carr monument is appalling, a disgrace to Emily Carr and a slap in the face to local carvers.

It reminds me of the tacky black velvet paintings of the 1970s.

A tourist draw? I don’t think so.

Oh well, maybe it won’t matter. With the library taking up the main Chemainus parking lot, there won’t be any tourists looking at the thing.
