The Photography 11/12 Semester End Show is this Thursday at the Leza Macdonald Gallery (located on Main street in the same building as Beyond Bliss Spa) from 6-8 pm.
This year our show was heavily influenced by a visit to the Penticton art gallery where we were able to view the photography of Brad McMurray. Our final show represents an exploration of how students feel about growing up in a small town. This show is full of dichotomies - there is ugliness and beauty, as well as loneliness and connection. The work the students produced is very honest and raw. Flanking the sides of the town pictures are photos from our collaborative unit with Kim Chenier's kindergarten class at OES.
