Photographers showing at Pearl Ellis Gallery

Annual Comox Valley Photographic Society exhibit opens March 13

With spring finally knocking on winter’s door, members of the Comox Valley Photographic Society (CVPS) have been busy creating images for their upcoming exhibition, which runs March 13-31 at the Pearl Ellis Gallery in Comox.

More than 40 photographic images will be on display, showcasing the work of 25 CVPS members. Visitors can expect to see powerful colour and black and white images that cover subjects ranging from landscapes, to wildlife, cityscapes, portraits and abstracts.

Many of the images were taken on local club field trips, but many others were shot across Canada and from as far away as Italy and Japan.

“Showcase 2018 raises the bar in the quality of work by CVPS members,” said CVPS Showcase co-ordinator, Norm Prince. “This year we’ve worked harder at improving the quality and range of the images on display at the Pearl Ellis Gallery.”

An opening reception will be held Saturday, March 17 from 1-4 p.m. Everyone is invited to meet the photographers, enjoy light refreshments and view the fine display of local talent. Learn how the images were created, what advice the photographers may have, and how their photographic skills have evolved. Photographers will be available throughout the show to answer questions.

The Pearl Ellis Gallery is located at 1729 Comox Avenue in Comox. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., closed Sunday/Monday. Free admission.
