Ten Years of Bat Shit Crazy
A guest exhibition by Steve Richard
Exhibition: April 4 - 28, 2019

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 4, 6-8pm
Artist's talk: Sunday, April 14 at 2 pm

​Open to the Public - Free to Attend

The show will feature Steve Richard’s favorite images from his last three books – Cloud Busting, Obscuro and Aerial. For ten years these three projects have involved the development of techniques and processes that go far beyond what would be considered normal. Where most people end with the creation of an image is usually where Steve begins and many have made the observation that the dedication and commitment of not only the artist but also the subjects for these projects can only be described as “bat shit crazy”.

​​The Captive Rain Forest

A member exhibition by Ford Doolittle

In March I attended a meeting held in Biosphere 2, Arizona. Now the site is a research facility and tourist destination, and its rain forest biome looks very much like it is trying to escape from the enclosing glass. I took many pictures of leaves desperately plastered against the windows and will show some of them.

Third Thursday Series

Social Justice Photography in the Digital Age
Kathleen Flanagan

Thursday, May 16, 2019, 7pm

Open to the public • Free to attend • An excellent way to strengthen your photography!

Documentary photography is based on the assumption that the photograph has the capacity to be an authentic representation of reality.  Social justice photography – which is a type of documentary photography that is explicitly associated with social reform – is built on this assumption.  Social justice photography flourished in the reformist climate of early-to-mid 20th century, as exemplified by photographers such as Lewis Hine and Dorothea Lange.  But what has happened to social justice photography in the age of photo manipulation and ‘fake news’?  This question will be considered by Kathleen Flanagan.

Artist's Biography
Garry Woodcock was a commercial photographer in Toronto for many decades before moving to Nova Scotia in 2000. A Ryerson Photo Arts (now called Image Arts) Graduate, he has been an enthusiastic photographer since childhood. In Nova Scotia, he has photographed Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival every year, providing images for their use. Garry was Festival Chair in 2003-5, and was Chair of Lunenburg Art Gallery for 5 years. Sheila and Garry have travelled to Japan 

Artist's Statement

Upon entering the gates of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, I found this moving scene to be unforgettable. The Japanese people will always remind themselves and the world of this horrible event. School children such as these learn first-hand about the horrors of war, and the many exhibits in the Memorial area are a lasting testament to the destruction caused in time of war. Peace is the positive message seen throughout. The building seen here was at the epicentre of the blast, but partly survived . It has been structurally preserved in this state as a shocking reminder of the devastation that the explosion of the world`s first atomic bomb caused on August 6, 1945.
