The Corre Alice Gallery in Cumberland invites you to the opening reception of Ron Pogue photographs Nov. 4 from 7 until 11 p.m. Attendance is free of charge, and everyone is welcome. Complimentary refreshments will be provided by Global Girls Gourmet, with aural ambiance courtesy of Miss Christina. The exhibit will run for the month of November.
This selection of photographs deals with vacant spaces, abandoned areas on the brink of change or the edge of society, and the ways in which we show the division between these places, and each other. They are metaphorical stories of the ways in which we’ve lost our way, told from the empty corners of the valley we call home.
Presented in large format black and white photographic prints on canvas, the images are visual narrative of the search for personal freedom and understanding of our place in the order of the world, and symbols of the impending change on the horizon.
Pogue has practised the art of photography since childhood and holds a bachelors degree in photography from Emily Carr University. He is looking for new avenues of exposure for his personal and professional work, and continually contributing to many local projects and causes, as well as expanding a massive archive of images of the life and times of the Comox Valley shared on a popular social networking site.
