Comox Valley Photographic Society’s Showcase opens at the Pearl Ellis Gallery on March 10, with 40 prints by 25 CVPS members.
“This year’s exhibit has been crafted to tell a story through the print, that’s the reason for printing an image… to tell a story to the viewer,” says CVPS Showcase co-ordinator Norm Prince.
This year’s exhibit will showcase both the technical and creative skills of the photographers, and images range from landscapes/wildlife to cityscapes and multiple exposed abstracts, printed in both colour and black and white.
An opening reception will be held Friday, March 13 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Many of the photographers will be in attendance.
“Anyone who shoots with a phone should come and see what local photographers are doing. When you view prints made by others, you can make your own prints better. I would encourage you to check out the reception and talk to the photographers,” says CVPS member Wink Richardson.
“It’s important to share your work; local artists are important to the community and I enjoy seeing prints on exhibit… we don’t often have the opportunity to see each other’s prints,” says Mason Laver. “And it’s a local gallery in Comox… what could be easier.”
The Pearl Ellis Gallery is located at 1729 Comox Avenue in Comox. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free admission.
