A showcase of photographic excellence

eighth annual ShowCase, Oct. 20 through Nov. 8

The Comox Valley Photographic Society presents the eighth annual ShowCase, Oct. 20 through Nov. 8 at the Pearl Ellis Gallery of Fine Arts.

The show features a variety of images ranging from traditional landscapes, wildlife, portraits, seascapes, architecture to abstracts, representing a variety of photographic styles.

The Comox Valley Photographic Society began as a handful of camera buffs more than 40 years ago and has grown to more than 150 members. Advances in digital photography, guest speakers, hands-on workshops, and field trip opportunities have all contributed to the growing membership. The club’s education component encourages members to reach beyond their comfort zone to produce exciting images and many photographers in the club are ready and willing to mentor new enthusiasts.

A reception for the show will be held on Tuesday evening, Oct. 20 from 7- 9 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend to meet the photographers, enjoy some light refreshments and be entranced by a stunning display of local talent. Learn how the images were created, what tips the photographers may have, and how their photography has evolved. Throughout the show, artists will be available at the gallery to answer questions. Don’t forget to place your ballot for the “People’s Choice Award” in the golden box before you leave.

The Pearl Ellis Gallery will be open from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. (closed Mondays). Admission is free. The gallery can be found at 1729 Comox Ave. in Comox.
