The Pearl Ellis Gallery opens its fourth annual Members’ Photography Show, newly named the “Vicki Lapp Memorial Award” show and sale on July 29. This exhibition of photography will run to Sunday, Aug. 17.

The gallery is open to the public Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sundays 1 – 4 p.m. and closed Mondays.

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. The balloting will go on throughout the first part of the show and the votes will be tabulated on Saturday, Aug. 9 at noon.

There will be a reception to announce the winners held that afternoon from 1 – 4 p.m. and all are welcome to attend.

It will be a great opportunity to meet the photographers in the show and to view the winning photos.

The winners will also be posted on the Pearl Ellis website at www.pearlellisgallery.com.

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

You might even win a prize just for voting! There will be a draw made from all the ballots for a gift certificate for 20 per cent off the price of a piece of art that they purchase at the gallery during 2014.

Visitors can expect to see quality pieces by 25 local photographers. You will see work by Ron Coutts (2013 Lens Award Winner), Steve Williamson, Claude Dalley, Martin Kaspers and Bert Badey to mention just a few.

Visitors between July 10 and Aug. 4 will have the added opportunity to enter their names in the draw for an overnight skippered private cruise for two during the month of September 2014, aboard one of Desolation Sound Yacht Charters beautiful yachts. There will be 12 draw boxes located at various locations in Comox. There is no cost for people to enter.
