"Through Our Lens"
New Sixty Days of Fame Exhibit at the MacNaught History Centre and Archives
The Red Sands Photography Club exhibit, "Through Our Lens", features the many styles of the club membership in capturing with a camera the everyday happenings of Island life. The exhibit will hang in the exhibition space of MacNaught History Centre and Archives in Summerside throughout December and January.
It will be the first exhibit for the club made up of amateur and professional photographers from across Prince and Queens Counties since before COVID-19. The club, formed in 2010, discontinued meeting during the height of the pandemic, but started up again this past fall with members excited to come back together to fulfil the goals of monthly field trips, picture critiquing, and learning new skills that keep the membership engaged and challenged. Betty Lou Frizzell, club member, says when the club comes together, “Knowledge is not hoarded. It is a room of mutual interest and learning”.
The membership is thrilled to be back in a gallery space. Two of the photographers being featured in the exhibit are David Gladstone and Scott Clark. Gladstone’s photographic journey started more than sixty years ago with a Kodak Brownie. For Scott Clark the photography journey began ten years ago when he bought his first entry level DSLR camera with the intent to capture quality photos of his children growing up. Never did he imagine it was the start of the journey to becoming a family photographer.
The exhibit will be open for viewing Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm at the MacNaught History Centre and Archives, 75 Spring Street. Admission is free.
A “Meet the Artist” Night is planned for Tuesday, December 6th from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. Some of the works are for sale.
