Foyer Gallery 2015 – A Little Art

The current show at Foyer Gallery is titled A Little Art. It started today on December 1st, 2015 and continues until January 3, 2016. This show is a group show featuring work by most of the members of the ~30 members of the Foyer Gallery. Each member presents several pieces of work depending on size and the majority of pieces are small for consideration as holiday gifts. I am showing five 8 x 10 framed prints. The top left image in the poster is mine: “Maple Leaf Display”.

El Charco Del Ingenio, San Miguel de Allende

During our February 2015 trip to San Miguel de Allende we visited El Charco Del Ingenio, a renowned botanical gardens important for it’s collection of endemic as well as rescued cacti. There are greenhouses which contain important specimens, outdoor collections in well managed garden beds, and of course a coffee shop, collectibles store and also a display of small cacti for sale in pots. Unfortunately it is illegal to take cacti out of Mexico and the penalties can be severe. So we just had to look. In addition there is a very large nature preserve riddled with hiking trails and wonderful views of canyons, the city of San Miguel de Allende, a hacienda ruins and cactus habitat. The grounds are so extensive and wonderful we spent two days of our 10-day vacation at El Charco Del Ingenio.

San Miguel de Allende

We took a winter vacation early in the year (2015) in San Miguel de Allende. It is a popular travel destination and photographer destination; an enclave of expatriates. In some ways it is not Mexico. In a lot of ways it is Mexico. Be prepared for walking up and down hills with narrow sidewalks and cobblestones.

KAP 2015-8 – Montreal River, Ontario

This kite aerial photography (KAP) session took place about 3 days into my journey west which had been planned as a 30-day photographic trip to the west coast and return to Ottawa via the USA. However, a day or two after this I suffered intense back pain which I sustained while my friend, Ted Welch, drove the rest of the way to Victoria, B.C. Subsequently I had two long stays in hospital, 9 days in Victoria and 8 days in Ottawa following surgery. Needless to say, this was not how my summer had been planned.

Here we were at the Montreal River, near the community of Montreal River Harbour. The river empties into Lake Superior at the Twilight Resort. I thank Dan Miles of Twilight Resort for allowing us access to his property in the off-season in order to take these pictures. Unfortunately the wind dropped not long after I put the kite in the air. Only a few nice shots were captured during this time. I would have liked to get more altitude to get a better perspective of the river entering the lake and to get a shot with the whole resort in a single frame.

KAP 2015-9 – Karen’s Place

My sister, Karen, purchased a home/hobby farm in the country near Spencerville, Ontario this year. Karen owns one horse and currently boards 3 more.

After another long break from Kite Aerial Photography, again due to back issues, I went to my sister’s place for Thanksgiving and decided it was time to get out the kite gear. Having had back surgery this summer it was with some caution that I approached this task. I had my niece, Stephanie, by my side so I could hand over if I needed to. She also helped with setting up the kite and holding the line while I mounted the camera rig. Things went well as far as my back was concerned with squatting to assemble the kite being the most difficult task. It was a gusty day and there were tall trees in the direction I was flying. A few nose-dives had me sweating while taking flight recovery measures. The camera was swinging to and fro but in spite of this I came away with a few good images of Karen’s property.

“As Is” – Presenting my Foyer Gallery Exhibit

As mentioned in my previous post, I’m in the current show at Foyer Gallery: As Is. It continues until October 18th, 2015 and my work consists of photographs made in Havana, Cuba in 2014.

Each artist in the show has had a video prepared presenting their individual work. Mine turned out reasonable well, considering it was unscripted, unrehearsed and ‘almost’ one take.

Thanks go to Liana Voia for preparing the video.

Since my previous post I have sold one image and replaced it with a different Havana image.

View my 17 images in the show.

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

As Is runs from September 29 to October 18, 2015.

Check the Foyer Gallery website for full details of hours and location.
