Double Exposure creates a platform for creating dialogue between photography and poetry.
Opening Reception: March 31, 2016 7pm-9pm.
Featuring a reading by Governor General’s Award winning poet E.D Blodgett accompanied by musician Paul Nash.
This interdisciplinary event showcases the talent of our community, and honours two popular annual events: Capture Photography Festival as well as Canada’s National Poetry Month. It not only celebrates talented community-based artists, but also generates opportunities for their connection and growth.
The purpose of the exhibition is to showcase a wide range of photography while forging ekphrastic poetry throughout the exhibition by local writers and poets.
