On September 25 an opening reception will be held at the Kootenay Gallery of Art for two photographic exhibitions.

The East Gallery will feature the work of photographers, Jo Brown and Tom Bradley, who live and work in Winlaw.

They have formed a creative partnership in which they share a passion for their craft, a fascination with the effect of natural light on their subjects and an interest in the natural world. Brown invites the viewer to imagine themselves as part of the landscape and therefore part of the story told by the images.

Bradley brings an historical perspective, a curiosity as to who may have walked on the narrow streets or passed along the country road many years before. Brown and Bradley have created a body of work independent of each other yet found that when exhibited together another dimension is added to the stories they tell.

In the West Gallery is a very timely exhibition of photographs taken by front line forestry firefighters.

After every fire season and especially toward the end of this devastating one, people feel a huge sense of gratitude to those who serve on the fireline.

Karlie Shaughnessy, Communications Officer for this Southeast Fire Centre works with the men and women who fight the fires in our local district and encourages them to capture their stories on camera. The results are incredible photographs that reflect the level of intensity they face in their efforts to control the often powerful and unpredictable fire events. Come to the opening of this exhibition, meet some of these men and women and get a glimpse into their world.

The opening reception for both these exhibitions will be held on Friday, September 25.

The exhibitions will run from September 25 to November 7. The Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10-5 p.m. with admission by donation.

The Gallery is located across from the Castlegar Regional Airport adjacent to the Doukhobor Discovery Center on Heritage Way. For more information visit www.kootenaygallery.com.
