A former co-tenant at the Gore Bay Harbour Centre, Helen Siksek, has opened up her Fish Point Studio in the newly renovated, The Inn at Gore Bay (formerly Gordon's Lodge). Helen is an enthusiastic promoter of the arts and has decided to host several exhibitions this year out of her new location. The first exhibition is showcasing the love and beauty of Gore Bay five local individuals have captured with their cameras. Helen organized, processed the images and has curated a wonderful sampling of just how incredible Gore Bay and nearby areas are.
Having followed my blog over the years, Helen thought it would be nice to have some of the photos of the horses and Kevin in the exhibition. Though I have been madly focused on getting ready for my upcoming large scale exhibition of new artworks that will be opening at the Gore Bay Museum's gallery later this month, I was able to say "yes" to Helen's request for images for her photography exhibition because all I had to do was send her the digital files and she handled the rest.
My photos all measure 11 x 17 inches and are processed and mounted on sturdy foam core and can be hung with or without a frame, no glass necessary. I decided I did not want to sell these images for personal gain, so Helen agreed to allow me to offer them up in a silent auction, with bids started at $30 each, and proceeds going to the Gore Bay Museum. The silent auction will run for the duration of the show, from June 8 to July 8. For more details please contact Helen at: email@example.com
Long time followers of the Journal of Ravenseyrie may remember some of these images, for all of them were published at one time in various articles of this blog. If you are in Gore Bay, stop by Helen's shop to see them hanging in their printed format. If you want to purchase one of these photographic prints, you can participate in the silent auction - you don't need to be there in person, just register with Helen before the end of the exhibition.
Being a bit socially challenged (anxiety in crowds) I did not attend the reception, but was delighted to learn that it was extremely well attended and all the photos from the other participants charmed viewers. It was so nice that Helen wanted to include images from Ravenseyrie. I think she did a super job and I am hoping people will enjoy seeing images from in and around Gore Bay that have great meaning for many of us.
