F8 Photography Collective’s Abstracts & Abstractions exhibition is now at Dignam Gallery – Beach Metro Community News
The F8 Photography Collective’s Abstracts & Abstractions exhibition takes place November 2-8.
By CATHERINE MacKINNON
The F8 photography collective was born from the Beach Photo Club. Her heart is still in the beach where the waves of Lake Ontario meet the Toronto shore.
The collective will celebrate its 12th year of creating contemporary photography with an exhibition, Abstracts & Abstractions, at the Dignam Gallery in Toronto’s Annex neighborhood from November 2-8.
F8 members Maureen Littlewood, Catherine MacKinnon, Rod Trider and John Wallace participate in the exhibition with guest artists Kersti Meema, Colleen Pollack and Anthony Schatzky.
Each artist directs his talents to present abstract images or abstractions of things.
In many cases, this leaves the works open to personal interpretation. Images of the ordinary and the extraordinary invite the viewer to reflect on their own understanding.
Some works are figurative with abstract elements, others are all non-figurative. Fragments and various techniques also provoke the minds of the participating photographers.
The show takes place from November 2-8.
Artist receptions are Friday November 5 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday November 6 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The Dignam Gallery is located at 23 Prince Arthur Avenue. Hours of operation are Tuesday to Saturday, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The historic gallery is the work of the Women’s Art Association, one of Toronto’s cultural gems located near the Royal Ontario Museum. To reach
