The 5th Let Kids Be Kids Camp Trillium Benefit

Camp Trillium, University of Guelph, Canada
May 3, 2014

I'm very happy to have donated a photograph and signed book to Camp Triullium's Let Kids Be Kids silent auction. It's heartening that an organization like Camp Trillium exist in this too often cold and indifferent world. 


Camp Trillium – Childhood Cancer Support Centre


The 5th Let Kids Be Kids Benefit supporting Camp Trillium will be held at the newly renovated Creelman Hall at the University of Guelph. We are expecting over 300 people this year, May 3rd. We will be serving a 4 course dinner, which will include a cash bar and silent auction items valued at over $20,000 including, wine tours, golf passes, gift baskets, autographed paraphernalia, Disney passes, artwork and tickets to multiple entertainment venues to name a few! 100% of proceeds raised will go directly to Camp Trillium. We are excited to announce this year's music entertainment- Black Water Draw (The Black Water Trio)!

Camp Trillium

 

Camp Trillium is an organization that provides year round programs for children living with cancer and their families across the province of Ontario. Since childhood cancer impacts the entire family, Camp Trillium welcomes the entire family to participate in its programs at no cost. Programs range from youth and preschool groups, in clinic programs, residential and family camps, winter camps and many more. This past year we had 3,100 campers and anticipate more through the coming year. With our numbers growing your support becomes imperative.

We receive no government funding. All of our funds are raised through the support of dedicated volunteers throughout the province. It is these special people who help Camp Trillium families and ensure that we can afford to bring them to camp. With over 400 children in Ontario being diagnosed a year, our numbers grow quickly and we need even more support.

Cancer is a very adult disease. Our goal is to make sure that our kids enjoy the fun and friendship of childhood and forget about the burden of cancer even if it is just for a little while. Your help will make so many children smile.

Between Heaven and Earth

Evocative Black & White photographs of Mystical Ireland

May 4 through May 31, 2011

Opening Reception May 7 from 4 to 7 pm
Artist Talk Sunday May 29 from 3 to 5 pm

The photos in this collection were made during my extended stays in Ireland over the past six years while filming the mini-series Camelot and The Tudors. 


The work focuses on the relationship to the "eternal" residents have had going back to the creation of megalithic monuments during the Neolithic period to the 6th century monastery perched 700 feet atop Skellig Michael Island, described by George Bernard Shaw as being "far out of this time and this world", to the mythic landscape that has inevitably shaped its inhabitants.

Evocative and timeless, these lyrical photographs reveal the eternal spirit and beauty of The Island of Saints and Scholars.

Peter Adamson, Bret Culp, John Long & Mira Zdjelar


Leonardo Galleries, Toronto, Canada
April 7 to April 23, 2011

Opening reception and artist talks: Thursday April 7 at 6:30 pm.



Photography and Digital Art

This exhibition is a presentation by four photographers each exploring a different theme.

Adamson’s recent work has focused on the interplay of line, shape, form and colour. While the subjects are secondary and the aesthetics primary, his motive is to pry the viewer away from winter and dream of summer.

Culp's poetic black and white photographs of Italy and Ireland reveal the beauty of impermanence.

Long’s life long passion for photography, both stereo 3D and mono is evident in his work. He is delighted to present this latest exhibition using medium format film with 3D images that possess a sharpness and depth that will captivate the viewer and at the same time his panoramic work exemplifies diversity in many ways.

Zdjelar’s presentation is a collection of urban fragments taken in silent protest against the reductionist spectacle of advertising billboards, hoping to open the doors towards a richer reality that lies beyond.

FOR INTERNATIONAL CHARITY EXHIBITION


More than 60 major works by contemporary photography masters were on exhibition and up for auction at the inaugural Masters of Photography International Charity Exhibition on Saturday, October 28th, in the city of Curitiba, Brazil.


The exhibition was presented by World Photographic Arts and featured Black & White Spider Awards and International Color Awards photographers who have donated their award winning prints to raise money for Art for Disabled Children and benefit the APADEH children's day school in Curitiba.


Basil O’Brien the curator of the exhibition and Creative Director of the award programs said, "To be able to show these stunning works for the first time as one collection is a great privilege. We are grateful to all photographers around the globe who have come together for such a good cause."


Among guests in attendance at this high profile event were state and local government officials, corporate heads and national press. The Brazilian TV personality Maria Pia presented the evenings ceremonies and interviewed guests for her TV and production company.


The exhibition raised money to build an Activity Center for APADEH (Associão Paranaense para o Desenvolvimento do Potencial), a school that provides education in a fully integrated environment for children with and without special needs. The school is based in Curitiba in the south of Brazil.

Bret Culp has recently won a Spider Award for his feature photograph Strength, whose symbolism ties in with his recent personal experiences in life and philosophies about the strength of the human will and fortitude of our fragile bodies.


John Long has a compelling series done in stereo photography, a rare and historic technique of viewing images in three-dimension. John Long is a man of infinite love of historic techniques, methods, equipment and aesthetic. He’s an informative and charismatic individual who enthrals his audience. John will also show a stunning series of large-scale panoramic landscapes that engulf the viewer into detailed scenes.

Opening reception is Thursday February 16, 6-9 pm
Artists present Saturday March 4, 1-3 pm


Terra Incognita exhibition


Terra Incognita
Photographs by Véronique Lehouck and Bret Culp

Véronique Lehouck and Bret Culp are two Canadian landscape photographers.
Their work shows a shared awareness of one of nature’s great paradoxes – its frailty versus its resilience. Terra Incognita is an exploration of this paradox.

Véronique and Bret are drawn to locales that are majestic and magical.
The figureless environments have and abstract quality that evokes a human dimension. Some resemble parts of the body, while others suggest more symbolic aspects of existence.


Both artists work in the Canadian film and television industry. Véronique developed her photographic eye by working as a cinematographer for many years and she now produces educational videos.

CONVERGENCE 43

43rd Annual Juried Exhibition

Tom Thomson Memorial Art Gallery, Owen Sound, Canada
January 23 to March 8, 2006

On view in the North Gallery from February 3 to March 19, 2006.
Opening reception and awards presentation Friday February 10 at 8 pm


Convergence–Tom Thomson Gallery


This exhibition is one of the most popular events on the Tom Thomson Art Gallery calendar. It is an opportunity to survey current visual arts practice by a wide range of artists, from graduating students to senior members of the visual arts community, in all fine art media including the traditional: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and sculpture; as well as the contemporary craft media and time-based formats.


The exhibition aims to reward excellence and innovation in artistic production. Since this annual show "takes the pulse" of art making in the region, we look for work that exemplifies what makers are thinking about- contemporary artists' concerns, working methods, and methods of exploration.


This year the Gallery has assembled a strong jury to select the exhibition from works submitted from all over Ontario. Celebrated painter and visual artist Alan Glicksman had a much-lauded exhibition at Engine Gallery in Toronto in Fall 2005 and recently relocated to Owen Sound. Printmaker and multi-media artist Steven White from Walter's Falls is represented by Edward Day Gallery in Toronto. Dr. Katharine Lochnan, the R. Fraser Elliott Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto recently produced the blockbuster exhibition Turner Whistler Monet and the touring show David Milne Watercolours: "Painting Toward the Light" that opens at the AGO in February.
