The Comox Valley Camera Club is pleased to present the seventh annual ShowCase, running from Oct. 21 through Nov. 9 at the Pearl Ellis Gallery of Fine Arts.

You will be treated to a variety of images ranging from traditional landscapes, wildlife, portraits, seascapes, architecture to abstracts, representing a variety of photographic styles.

The CV Camera Club began as a handful of camera buffs over 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.

Many photographers in the club are ready and willing to mentor new enthusiasts.

A reception for the show will be held  Tuesday, Oct. 21 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 gallery will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday, and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. It is closed Mondays. Admission is free.

The gallery is at 1729 Comox Ave. in Comox.  Tour the virtual gallery at www.pearlellisgallery.com.
