Under the guidance of Alexandra Morrison, “TRESPASSING” is a show of images as seen Through Her Eyes (T.H.E.) photography collective — a group of adventurous women photographers who are presenting their first showing together from Saturday, February 1 to Wednesday, February 26 at the Wayne Arthur Gallery, 186 Provencher Boulevard.
The public can meet the artists at the opening reception on Sunday, February 2, from 1 to 4 pm.
Over the past year, these women have come together to take pictures at various locations, including a ghost town setting and other intriguing places where they brought their images and ideas together, sharing thoughts and challenging each other in a safe environment while having fun at the same time.
They surpass, or one could say trespass, the boundaries in all ways with their magnificent works of art. These women have exceeded the limitations of what some think women can do in society. The images you will see are unlike any other, evoking emotions you may thought you never had.
Those who think women only take pictures of flowers and babies will think twice once they see and experience these new and adventurous works of art created by this group of local women photographers. The images will challenge visitors, perhaps even shift people’s expectations about what women’s photography is all about.
The talent this collective group of women share is phenomenal. They are true pioneers exploring beyond the borders of what anyone imagines about women and art.
The artists presented in this show are Alexandra Morrison, Barbara Cantley, Kristen Homenuik, Barbara Lynn Read, Laurie Harper-Winning, Carole O’Brien, Maureen Miller, Christen Winning, Pierrette Boily, Gail Marchessault and Sharon Jenkins.
The public is invited to come and share the experiences, adventures and visions of this wonderful group of women photographers who possess such excellent artistic and thought provoking talent.
