Exhibition Invitation - 100 Views of Canberra - Thursday 1 August @ 6pm

  

Hello again,

This is an invitation to come to a group exhibition I'm participating in.  As part of the Centenary of Canberra festivities (aka Canberra 100), celebrating 100 years since construction officially commenced on this great planned city, PhotoAccess has coordinated a major project showcasing 110 photographs of Canberra, from 110 Canberra photographers.  The project presents these images at a month long exhibition and curated book, available for purchase.

 

I'm proud to live in the beautiful city of Canberra and be a part of this project.  The print I will be exhibiting is Lone Carillon, Canberra, ACT.

 

Exhibition details:

 

 

Book launch and exhibition opening: 6pm Thursday 1 August 2013

Exhibition open times: 10am-4pm Tesday to Friday, 12-4pm Weekends

Quotes on 100 Views of Canberra exhibition and book:

 

ACT Chief Minister Katy Gallagher MLA in her introduction on 100 Views of Canberra said:

"The evocative images contained in this wonderful publication tell a compelling story of our city, and of the people who call Canberra home... 100 Views of Canberra provides a unique record of the nation's capital as it is now."

 

Centenary of Canberra Creative Director Robyn Archer AO:

"This publication now produces evidence of the variety and splendour of Canberra's natural and built environment and, most importantly, some of the people who live here."

 

Doctor Denise Ferris, Chair, PhotoAccess:

"The 100 Views of Canberra book and the exhibition in the Huw Davies Gallery are both valuable social documents, surveying the Canberra only locals know.  We hope the project will give people outside Canberra a greater, more realistic understanding of their national capital."

  

Marion Halligan AM, a distinguished writer and passionate Canberran:

"One of the effects, as it was certainly one of the intentions, of this centenary year is to show how far our actual Canberra is from the many stereotypes that patronise and dismiss it.

This book is a wonderful correction of such a view, showing that unconsidered banalities have no role here.  It is a collection of marvellous potential conversations."

 

 

Aside from all that, it's a great chance to come and say hi over refreshments and a drink, though there will be a lot of people squeezing into a small space!  I hope to see you there.

 

 

Best regards,
Chris
