As you plan your next trip through the immense province of Ontario, you will undoubtedly find 'A Photographer's Guide To The Ontario Landscape' an indispensible guide to countless photographic locations. My friend and colleague, Andrew McLachlan, has produced an outstanding e-book to direct you to these wonderful locations. I had the pleasure of traveling and photographing with Andrew during some of these excursions. Throughout the book, Andrew has interspersed many tips about making fine images.
'Pixels - The Exhibition' is held over for another week. It will end on Saturday July 2nd. This exhibition is the latest to be held at the new Pixels2Point1 Gallery in the historic 'Exchange District' in downtown Winnipeg. Pixels2Point1, also affectionately known as Pixels 2.1, is a gallery dedicated to displaying the works created by Manitoba photographers.
Pixels 2.1, a gallery dedicated to photography and the photographers of Manitoba, now features a group exhibition of its finest. 'Pixel Fusion', which runs from June 3 to 26, will feature 6 prints by each of the 12 photographers. Photographers exhibiting include Alexandra Morrison, Chris Brown, Chris Gray, Dennis Fast, Geoff Lussier, Hans Arnold, Mike Grandmaison, Mike Karakas, Keith Levit, Tami Reynolds, Rodney Brown and Anil Sud. June 3 will feature a 'Special Gala Opening' where folks can meet the artists beginning at 7:30 PM.
On Friday, April 1 Winnipeg's own Chris Gray delighted the 'full house' at Pixels 2.1 Gallery with his entertaining images of a recent trip to Africa. 'Dreams of Africa' was no April fool's joke either! It was an evening filled with information about getting to Africa, what to watch out for when booking a tour or photo workshop and, of course, it was about seeing a beautiful collection of Chris' images. One of 'humble Chris' images was voted a 'fan' favorite in a past National Geographic photo contest! The presentation was another in a series of 'First Friday Speakeasy' events held at Pixels 2.1 Gallery where photographers are gathering to meet, talk and breath PHOTOGRAPHY!
