Photographer featured in MAC exhibit

Arts centre announces October exhibit lineup including Wednesday Painters, Arrowsmith Artist's Group

The work of photographer Randy Hall will be highlighted in October’s exhibits at the McMillan Arts Centre, with an opening reception and sale Saturday, Oct. 3 from 1–3 p.m.  The public is welcome to meet the artist and enjoy complimentary refreshments at the MAC, 133 McMillan Street, Parksville.

Hall is a Vancouver Island photographer specializing in nature photography, whether it is capturing natural settings such as seascapes or forest landscapes or the plants and animals that inhabit this part of British Columbia. 
Randy considers himself a landscape photographer first, but also an opportunistic wildlife photographer. “My photos are my interpretation of works by a true master… Mother Nature,” he says. 
Randy has developed a style that shows enhanced colours and contrast. When many people think of contrast, they think colours and tones, but his work shows there can also be contrast in content.

You can find more of Randy’s work on his website, www.RandyHallPhotography.com. He also promotes his work on Facebook  www.facebook.com/RandyHallPhotography.

Also on exhibit at the MAC throughout October will be works from the Wednesday Painters and the Arrowsmith Artist’s Group.

The Wednesday Painters are a group that has been painting together for many years from September to June. They paint in various media in Studio B at the MAC and always welcome new members.

The Arrowsmith Artist’s Group was formulated in 1998. For many years its exhibits were held primarily in Wembly Mall then, more recently, at the McMillan Arts Centre. The membership consists of artists and photographers.

This year, they have eight members participating, some who have been with the group for 15 years.

The  exhibiting artists include: Penny Marshall, Margorie Dunlop, Helen Binns, Luke Downs, Olivia Mennie, Margery Blom, and Nic Bosma.
