10am to Noon

Print reviews are the first Saturday each month.

Print reviews are open to the public! Bring your prints (any size, framed or not) for a review led by a Gallery Member. If you've ever wondered what others think of your work but were too shy to ask or always received the dreaded "It's nice" response, this is your opportunity. We hope to see you there!

Artist Statement

Speed and noise dominate the street, leaving little time for reflection. The buildings that line the street are not immune, albeit the pace and volume are lower. There is a blur to life where details, special and tawdry, are lost. The pedestrian and the photographer can briefly halt and create memories, but at their peril.


Richard Purcell is an amateur photographer living in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He has trained as an architect, animator, and computer scientist. Most of his photographs are taken on familiar streets while he is trying to get somewhere.


Price: $250
