Foyer Gallery 2014 – Dreams of Spring

I’m participating in the next exhibition at the Foyer Gallery. It is a group show with the theme Dreams of Spring and features work by most or all of the 24 artists of the Foyer Gallery. Each member presents several pieces of work depending on size and I will be showing four spring related photographs. The poster shows one of my images called Bachelor’s Buttons Over Creeping Jenny (2nd row, 1st image). This image was taken in our front garden in early spring. Just when the tulips are finishing the Bachelor’s Buttons take over. The yellow background is caused by the ground cover called Creeping Jenny which is yellow in the spring and turns green later in the year. Throwing the Creeping Jenny out of focus gives a dreamy effect to this Dreams of Spring image.

Foyer Gallery 2014 – Colour of Cold

Foyer Gallery 2014 – Beyond Limits

I’ll be showing again at the Foyer Gallery in the Nepean Sportsplex. This time it is a focus show titled “Beyond Limits”, with only 4 artists exhibiting work. That means that I will be displaying work in about 1/4 of the gallery. All of my work will consist of aerial views, most of which were taken with Kite Aerial Photography (a remote-controlled camera suspended below a kite).

Other artwork in this show includes architectural photography by Mario Cerroni and paintings by Jess Fleury and Ray Piesina.

We would love it if you could attend the vernissage on Sunday, February 2, 2014 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.

Beyond Limits. January 28 to February 16, 2014 exhibition by members of the Foyer Gallery. Nepean Sportsplex, Woodroffe Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Foyer Gallery 2014 – Child’s Play

Starting with the 2014 calendar year, I am a member of a cooperative of artists running the Foyer Gallery. Situated just inside the front entrance of the Nepean Sportsplex, the Foyer Gallery showcases original works of art created by a select group of visual artists from the Ottawa area. Gallery members work in a wide variety of media, ranging from oils, watercolours, acrylics, fibre art and photography to sculptural works in wood, metal, clay, marble and glass.

The first show in which I am involved starts this coming week. It is a group show with the theme Child’s Play and features work by the 7 new artists (3 pieces each) including me, plus a single work by each of the longer standing members of the gallery. I will be showing three images from my “Kites on White” series. The poster shows one of my images with the tail of the kite running across the whole poster. I’m really pleased to have my image shown that way in the advertisement.

Child’s Play. January 2014 exhibition by members of the Foyer Gallery. Nepean Sportsplex, Woodroffe Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

A selection of greeting cards and matted prints by several members is also available for purchase.

Child’s Play runs from January 7 to 26.

Back to the land of snow and ice after a wonderful month of February in Australia. Recently I have made a couple of attempts to KAP the Wakefield bridge without any success so a couple of weeks have elapsed without succeeding with any kite aerial photography. Finally a nice day arrived to do some work with the Parliament buildings and the still frozen landscape. Here are some of the shots from this session.

Pugwash is a small village on the Northumberland Strait shore of Nova Scotia. Many years ago our family had a short holiday at a friend’s cottage not too far from Pugwash and this town was the local hub for essential supplies. It is also the home of one of the Windsor Salt salt mines.

These photographs were taken using a remote-controlled camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).

KAP 2013-9 – Prospect, Nova Scotia – April 1, 2013

Aerial photograph of Prospect, Nova Scotia

I love the setting of this village. Winter has just left the area making the much of the terrain look dead. I’m sure a much different picture can be obtained in the summer and the winter. I hope to return at other times of year.

A big thank-you goes out to Bill Wilson, a Halifax area Flickr contact, for helping me resolve equipment issues in order to get this session done. Two days earlier I had been to Peggy’s Cove and here to Prospect. The winds were very strong that day but with the attitude “You don’t get if you don’t try” I boldly set up to fly at both places. At Peggy’s Cove I regretted the move in having a major fight to bring the kite back down. Later, at Prospect, thinking the wind had dropped a bit, I proceeded to snap the horizontal spar of my FLED while in the process of setting up when a gust set the kite out of control with only a metre of line out. I almost always carry spare spars when travelling, but not on this occasion when I was only in Halifax for a few days. Bill responded to my pleas and helped me out with what I needed. Thus, here I was back at Prospect with a repaired kite and ideal KAP conditions.
