ImageFest 2015 at the Sid

Photography exhibit Saturday, March 21

Aliens on Comox Avenue will be part of this year's CVPS Imagefest Show.

The Comox Valley Photographic Society (formerly the Comox Valley Camera Club) and its 180 members are excited to present an exciting and inspirational photographic gala featuring a collection of short slideshow presentations, set to music, of some of the finest work of club members.

The fifth annual Imagefest Photography Gala takes place Saturday, March 21, 7:30 p.m. at the Sid Williams Theatre. It will feature stunning images that feature diverse photographic techniques including light painting, portraiture, abstract composition, time lapse photography, as well as nature, wildlife and travel photography from exotic locales such as Paris, Chicago, Tibet and Qatar. There will be some video components to the show as well.

“This show is definitely the best collection we’ve presented yet,” says Kerry Dawson, Imagefest 2015 co-ordinator with the CVPS. “People are going to be blown away by these images. We’ve even got photographers taking pictures of aliens – it’s not to be missed!”

In addition there will be a print display of photographic art in the lower foyer of the theatre that can be viewed before the show and during the intermission.  The event is an annual fundraiser for the non-profit photographic society and a great way for the public to learn about the society and learn about the possibilities that the art of photography can offer. Fabulous door prizes from a variety of local businesses including Twisted Dishes, the Beachwood Café, Benino Gelato, Ginger 9 Gallery, Blue Heron Books, and Roots Salon will be given away during the evening event.

Tickets are only $15 and can be purchased at the Sid Williams theatre box office or online at sidwilliams.com.  For more information contact Kerry Dawson at 339-1029.
