I’m participating in the West End Studio Tour (WEST) again. This is my fourth year (after taking last year off due to family obligations) .
I have primarily focused on three themes for my photography presented at this year’s WEST. The artistic side of derelict property is my main theme largely comprised of works from my trip to Havana earlier this year. I will also be presenting a number of newer aerial photographs, some taken with kite aerial photography, some just taken from high places. The third component of this year’s offering will be a number of abstract images, collected from here and there.
W.E.S.T. is in its 19th year and for 2014 has 16 artists showing a variety of art works. I’m one of two photographers on the Tour. My gallery is in my home at 480 Denbury Ave.
Saturday and Sunday (Sept 6 & 7) between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.
Saturday and Sunday (Sept 13 & 14) between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.
In addition to our annual open house galleries in September, myself and six other W.E.S.T. artists are joining together in a 3 day exhibition at the Spiral Gallery.

The exhibition is over for another year. For the benefit of those who didn’t attend here are a few pictures of my display. Instead of moving all of the furniture from my living room and dining room as was the case in previous years, this year I left the main furniture with a bit of rearranging and included two additional rooms. The net effect was a more open feeling and space for more pictures to hang than last time.
The West End Studio Tour (WEST) 2011 is over for this year but our hard working team keeps plugging away year-round to keep this annual event rolling along. Choleena DiTullio is diligently working on short video clips of each artist to add to the West End Studio Tour YouTube Channel.
It’s my turn to be the featured artist and here is the video with several of the images that were shown in my gallery during this year’s Studio Tour.
Thanks Choleena for a great job putting this together.
The past two weekends have had my home open to visitors as part of the West End Studio Tour 2011 (WEST). This was my second year in the tour which consists of 20 artists (2 photographers) in their various galleries, studios and home settings. Good traffic, good conversation, good leads and good sales. Consequently I hope to participate again in September 2012.
For anyone who missed the Tour and is interested to see what they missed in my portion of the show, the images that I had framed on display are shown in the West End Studio Tour 2011 gallery on my website.
Here is one of the popular images from the show which was also the one included in the WEST brochure and on display at the vernissage site at Wall Space Gallery.
I’m mid-way through participating in the West End Studio Tour 2010 (WEST). There is still the weekend of September 25th and 26th to attend if you are in the Ottawa area. I’m one of 20 artists in the tour so there is much to see. I’m including a few pictures of my setup which includes not just my kite aerial photography but also more traditional landscapes, macro photography and a number of images using post-processing to give a painterly quality or otherwise unique interpretation.
I converted our entrance hall, living room and dining room into a walk-through photo gallery exhibiting framed prints of various dimensions, mostly 16″ x 20″, but also several aerial panoramas of Ottawa scenes framed with dimensions 18″ x 36″.
I also set up a display table with pictures and equipment demonstrating the “art” of kite aerial photography plus a laptop slideshow of a selection of low level aerial photography images. It was invaluable during the first weekend in explaining the technique which is often interpreted in bizarre ways when not enough information has been given. Some imagine that I strap myself and an SLR camera to a hang glider. Others have an image of me tying a camera to a kite and running down a field trying to get the contraption off the ground. The visual presentation helped to convey that the camera is suspended from the “line” at considerable distance below the already stable flying kite.
