This exhibition of photography will run to Sunday, August 30th. The Gallery will be open to the public Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm, Sundays 1 – 4pm and will be closed Mondays. On the first day of the show, August 11th, there will be an evening reception held from 7 to 9 pm. and all are welcome to attend. It will be a great opportunity to meet the photographers in the show and to cast your vote for your favourite pieces.
At this show the public, as well as the members, will be encouraged to fill out a ballot selecting their favorite piece of photography in the exhibit. We are looking forward to the participation of the public as well as the gallery membership. The balloting will go on throughout the first part of the show and the votes will be tabulated on Sunday, August 23rd at 4pm. The winners will be posted at the gallery on the 25th.
The winning photographer will receive a 2 year membership renewal and a plaque to commemorate the event. There will be a draw made from all the ballots. The winner receives a gift certificate for 20% off on a piece of art that they purchase at the gallery during 2015.
Visitors can expect to see quality pieces by local photographers. You will see work by Martin Kaspers (2014 Vicki Lapp Award Winner), Steve Williamson, Claude Dalley, and Bert Badey to mention just a few. The Pearl Ellis Gallery is always a great place to visit and to shop for that unique new piece of art for one's home, business or as a gift. Members receive a 10% discount on purchases of art at the opening 'reception' or 'meet and greet'. New memberships are always available for $20.00.
