"Inspiring, engaging, educating, & promoting the Art of Photography"
Presentification of Paradise- Jean Rene Leblanc - a guest solo show
Exhibition Running: Wednesday, March 4 to Sunday, March 29, 2015
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 5, 6 - 8 pm
Artist Talk: Sunday, March 8, 2 pm
This body of work explores the conceptual use of digital infrared photography as a means to investigate new ways of looking at the world we live in. Shot on the Big Island of Hawaii, diptychs composed of colour images of abandon vehicles juxtapose to pristine black and white landscapes shot in digital infrared attempt to address the paradoxes of beauty, capitalism and notions of paradise.
SECOND FRIDAY SERIES

Susan McEachern Working Thematically
Although most work done by an individual artist is connected compositionally, stylistically, or technically, McEachern has, in the production of many projects, made a number of very different works that approach the same theme using different photographic approaches - different tools. McEachern will discuss this method of working.
Farther/Further Afield - Ford Doolittle
Exhibition Running: Wednesday, April 1 to Sunday, May 3, 2015
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 2, 6 - 8 pm
Artist Talk: Sunday, April 12, 2 pm
This show follows from Ford Doolittle's 2012 "Closer to Home" at ViewPoint, in which all photographs were taken within two blocks of the Gallery. Ford has ranged farther in his shooting, geographically, and is trying to get further into the aesthetic of the mundane, aesthetically. As an unregenerate modernist, Ford thinks there is some truth out there, or some truth about the relationship of the camera to what is out there, that can only be approached. Ford's heroes, William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, John Gossage, have gotten closer to this truth than he ever could, but he likes to think that he is on their trail.
