Pearl Ellis showcasing Valley photographers

Vicki Lapp Memorial Photography Awards Show

The Pearl Ellis Gallery opens its sixth annual Vicki Lapp Memorial Photography Awards Show and sale, on Tuesday, March 15. This exhibition of photography will run to Sunday, April 3.

Visitors can expect to see quality pieces by local photographers.

You will see work by Norm Prince, Steve Williamson, Claude Dalley, and Ingrid Mayer, to mention a few.

On Saturday, March 19 there will be an afternoon reception held from 1-4 p.m. It will be a great opportunity to meet the photographers in the show. Photographer Steve Williamson will give a presentation, and Q and A at the Lions’ Den, downstairs of the Pearl Ellis, at the same time.

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, April 3 at 4 p.m.  The winners will be posted at the gallery on April 5.  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 for a gift certificate for 20 per cent off on a piece of art that they purchase at the gallery during 2016.

The Pearl Ellis Gallery is located in Comox at 1729 Comox Ave.
