OFFA-Oakville Festivals of Film & Art: June 26-28th

   June 26th -28th



And, JOIN US at the GALA - Saturday, June 27 at 8pm

Photo Art Fête is an exclusive celebration for VIP OFFA supporters to meet, hear, and celebrate the works of curated local and international photographers. This portion of OFFA 2015 is what sets us apart from any other film festival in the region. But more importantly it follows OFFA’s mission to “Breath new life into the Oakville Community.”

Photo Art Fête begins Saturday June 27th at 8pm with drinks and hors d’oeuvres. The night continues with live art, live music and live performances throughout before a riveting discussion with a few of the 16 featured artists - including yours truly :)  I will speak about my evolving photo-collages, and about a new MLH film project in the works .... 

Finally, the first ever Oakville Festivals of Film & Art’s People Choice Award: Best Photograph will be presented preceding a great night of socializing and fêting. The event will be hosted by SavvyArt Market, one of Oakville’s leading art distributors.

If you are on Instagram, you can vote, if you like, (and I would appreciate it if you did!) for either one of my two favourite photos collages in the exhibit: 'Wolf Eye' - here, or  'Apple Sleeping' here

PHOTO ART Fête 2015 will take place at Aroma Espresso Cafe in Downtown Oakville,
 at 321 Lakeshore Road E, (Lakeshore and Reynolds, one East of Trafalgar.) and remain 'up' throughout the month of June.

Join the Photo Art Fête! 
See you there! - 8pm, Saturday, June 27th.

Update: A great occasion - albeit the weather was TERRIBLE. Kudos to all who braved the elements!

 A loooong winter has passed, and a delightful,

I'm shifting into a 'Canadada' kind of mood ...

Re-post: The Scenic Journey of Edgar Payne (1883-1947)

InCollect has done a great profile of Edgar Payne, the man and his works, aptly entitled, 'The Scenic Journey' (2013). When I discovered it, I loved it. So, I'm reposting that direct LINK .

I mean, really, LOOK at THIS. ....  It's bleedin' FANTASTIC!
