Saviours in This Little Space for Now brings together two greats artists — Emily Carr (1871 – 1945) and Vincent van Gogh (1853 – 1890). Their spiritual yearnings and frustrations with societies that did not understand them seem to find a home together. Saviours in This Little Space for Now suggests that true salvation can be found in the greatest paintings and creations of our time.
