Ella Donnelly completed the staging today for this amazing room. My photographs really complement her styling well. CBC French Television came over to our booth (# 56) for an interview as they documented some of the exhibits.
Tomorrow morning, the lights come down and DAAX begins in earnest.

Ella Donnelly (Infinite Interiors) and I continued to work on our set for the Design-Art-Architecture Expo (DAAX) which begins Friday morning. Ella completed the layout and placed all the furnishings while I hung a selection of photographs from The Canadian Gallery to work with Ella's decor. Tomorrow we will put the final touches before the media tour that will take place around 4 PM. Almost done!

The area that stretches from Kenora south to Morson in Northwest Ontario is sparsely populated and not a popular destination for travelers as they mostly confine themselves to the TransCanada Highway from Winnipeg to Thunder Bay. This area is however very scenic as cottage owners know only too well. While Rushing River Provincial Park is clearly the most popular destination in the area, the landscape in and around beautiful Lake of The Woods is second to none in terms of beauty. From fog blanketed lakes at sunrise to blazing red maples in autumn, there is plenty to explore here. You are sure to hear the haunting cry of the loon and, if you are truly lucky, you may just witness a timber wolf cross Dryberry Creek as I did last weekend while photographing red maple trees reflecting in the creek.

Just three more days before the inaugural launch of DAAX - Design Art Architecture Expo - happening this very weekend from Friday October 4 through Sunday October 6. It takes place at the Red River Exhibition Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
I will be collaborating with Ella Donnelly of Infinite Interiors, an award-winning interrior designer who combines sound design principles with aesthetics, client taste and personality to create infinite interiors, whether in a residential or a commercial setting. Ella, Kevin and I have been very busy building a set that Ella will furnish as per her design and which will incorporate a selection of my fine art photographs.
Photographs of the natural world provide inspirational and meditative interludes from the occasionally charged and energized atmosphere of corporate offices, and my intimate views of the natural world and exquisite landscapes provide the perfect compliment to structured architectural environments. In addition, photographs from The Canadian Gallery will enhance the tranquil and peaceful atmosphere of any home. 'Lake Huron Sunset', printed at 60x40 inches, is a fine example of the fine art photographs available though 'The Canadian Gallery'.
Ella and I are very excited about this event and we very much look forward to meeting you this weekend at DAAX !
