Winter at the Whyte: January 15 – March 20, 2005

The Whyte Museum is in Banff, Alberta, Canada.

There are four parts to this show: from the website:

Folio Gallery: Revisted
Main Gallery


Folio Gallery of Calgary was a commercial exhibition space that specialized in exhibiting and promoting fine art photography. Folio opened its doors in 1983 and, after over 100 successful exhibitions, closed its exhibit space in 1995. For those 12 years, Folio was a unique exhibition space in Western Canada featuring excellent Canadian and International Photography. Folio Gallery cultivated an appreciation and awareness in the art of photography in the Province of Alberta and Western Canada.

Folio Gallery: Revisited traces the significance of its exhibitions by photographers that exhibited there. It also highlights recent work by a selection of these photographers who have continued to pursue the art of photography.

Through the Lens: A Retrospective
Main Gallery


This exhibition has been selected from over 650 photographs in the Whyte Museum’s “Through the Lens” permanent collection. For the past seven years, over 200 grade 7 – 12 students from Canmore’s Lawrence Grassi Middle School, Canmore Collegiate High School, Banff Community High School, and Morley Community School, participated in this photographic outreach program. This program encourages the students to experiment, to learn about themselves and their community, and to explore visual communication through the exciting medium of photography.

Sound and Light: Dianne Bos
Elizabeth Rummel Room


Dianne’s work challenges the view of photography as a tool to capture an instant in time. By using pinhole cameras and long exposure times she records not an instant, but rather a passage of time at a site. The inclusion of recorded sound taken during these long exposures allows the viewer to experience that passage.

Temporal Traces: Myles Zarowny
Swiss Guides Room


Ambiguously preoccupied with the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, Myles “stalks” Banff, his tourist hometown, armed with a “Kodak Pocket Jr.” folding bellows camera. It is not unsullied splendour he desires to capture, but humanity within nature and the ever-present intervention between them. Using extended exposures and paper negatives, an altered landscape in presented.
-----------------

Show opens this Friday at 7:30pm. All are welcome.

There will close to 200 photographs as part of this exhibition.
