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.
My latest 'Discovering Canada' feature, 'The Lure of Lake Winnipeg' was just published in the latest issue of Outdoor Photography Canada magazine. For each of these features, it is always a struggle to choose which images will accompany the article as it is never possible to publish more than a few. It just occurred to me that the Blog is a wonderful vehicle to show additional imagery of some of these special Canadian destinations.
Over the years, I have donated prints for fundraising efforts to a variety of non-profit organizations. Recently, I made two such contributions.
I donated 'Prairie Crocus At Sunset' to the CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) for their 12th Annual Eye on the Arts Benefit Art Auction which was held on March 17 at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. Proceeds are used to help Manitobans living with vision loss.
I look forward to returning this summer to conduct another workshop at the Niagara School of Imaging in Ste. Catharines, Ontario. 'Making A Living As A Nature Photographer' runs from August 21 to August 25 and will explore the 'ins and outs' of a working nature photographer's life.
