Exhibition: April 6 – April 30, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 6, 6-8pm
Artist’s Talk: Sunday, April 16th, 2pm

As Roxanne describes the exhibit:

“In this new series of work I have been responding to media representations of people and places.

With this body of work I am asking the viewer to consider the ordinary world that surrounds them. To do this I am presenting a figure, to stand-in for the viewer. She inhabits rooms and places that are ordinary. The audience upon viewing this quiet reality may find that upon consideration the ordinary that they inhabit is extraordinary.

There are stories here. Among them a quiet story of a life lived in private”.

ViewPoint’s 2016 Int’l Photo Competition – November winner

gary-cummins-save-me-from-the-cold-2-96-titled

Gary Cummins – Canada

 “Save me from the cold”

The piece is currently on display and offered for sale at ViewPoint Gallery.

From the artist’s statement:
I was lucky to get this photograph the day after the last major snow storm of the season. Off work for the day I decided to venture over to the Toronto Islands. It was so quiet there it felt like I was the only person on the island.
Walking along the southern boardwalk I came across the frozen life saver which was lit so well from the sun above. I set up my tripod and shot a long exposure to get some movement in the clouds. It was a venture worthwhile. A perfect example of getting out when the moment is right.
