New name, same quality work for Members’ Photography Show

Vicki Lapp Memorial Award Show and Sale, opens Aug. 11

The Pearl Ellis Gallery opens its fifth annual Members’ Photography Show, newly named the “Vicki Lapp Memorial Award” show and sale on Tuesday, Aug. 11. This exhibition of photography, featuring quality pieces by  local photographers, will run to Sunday, Aug.  30.

Participating photographers include Martin Kaspers (2014 Vicki Lapp Award Winner), Steve Williamson, Claude Dalley, and Bert Badey to mention just a few.

At this show the public, as well as the members, will be encouraged to fill out a ballot selecting their favourite piece of photography in the exhibit.  We are looking forward to the participation of the public as well as the gallery membership. The balloting will go on throughout the first part of the show and the votes will be tabulated on Sunday, Aug. 23 at 4 p.m.  The winners will be posted at the gallery on Tuesday, Aug. 25.

The winning photographer will receive a two-year membership renewal and a plaque to commemorate the event.

There will be a draw made from all the ballots. The winner receives a gift certificate for 20 per cent off on a piece of art that they purchase at the gallery during 2015.

On the first day of the show, Aug. 11, there will be an evening reception held from 7-9 p.m. and all are welcome to attend.  It will be a great opportunity to meet the photographers in the show and to cast your vote for your favourite pieces.

The gallery will be open to the public Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am. to 4 p.m., Sundays 1 to 4 p.m. and will be closed Mondays. The gallery is located in Comox at 1729 Comox Ave.

New memberships are always available for $20.
