Photosynthesis Dazzles Again at ArtSpring
For the 17th consecutive year, the Photosynthesis show will provide Salt Spring Island with a look at what some of our top photographic talent is producing.
Photosynthesis is a group of accomplished Salt Spring Island photographers founded in 1995. Membership has fluctuated over the years but it currently comprises 18 photographers, chosen for the quality and originality of their work.
This year’s theme is “Pretty Pictures?” which encourages each photographer to explore and express their attitude about the current state of photography – whether to indulge the decorative aspect prominently featured on social media or attempt to go beyond it through imaginative and creative expression. All works are new; none have previously been shown. This ensures that the show will be fresh, vibrant and exciting.
Participants in Photosynthesis2017 include Alane Lalonde, Seth Berkowitz, Shari Macdonald, Chris Stackhouse, Alan Bibby, Brigit Freybe Bateman, Tamar Griggs, Greg Klassen, Michael Wall, Jen Holmes, Avril Kirby, Grace Sevy, Bernadette Merten-MacAllister, Timmy Gibbons, Judy McPhee, Jana Zachariou, and Sam Lightman.
The opening reception is on August 23th from 5 – 7:30 pm at ArtSpring. The show runs daily from August 24th until September 5th with at least one photographer in attendance at all times to meet visitors and discuss the group’s works.
Artspring Gallery is open 10-5 daily. For more information about Photosynthesis2017, go to: http://www.photosyn.ca. Facebook: Photosynthesis – Salt Spring Island Photographers
