People and Places

Opening Reception

Saturday, March 9, 1-3 pm

Exhibit dates: March 6- April  13, 2019

The exhibition “People and Places” at the O’Connor Group Art Gallery brings together the figurative photography of Graham Dowden and the landscape painting of Jeff Wilson.  Photographs of people in public places aim for a spontaneity that sometimes hints at the private life behind the public persona. In contrast, landscape painting is a more deliberate analysis of light and colour that aims to reflect the broader world.  This exhibition combines these separate traditions in a setting which emphasizes not their differences but what they have in common.

Graham Dowden is a former University of the Fraser Valley English instructor turned photographer whose work has been shown in Vancouver, Surrey, Prince George, Nanaimo, Campbell River, Fort Langley, Chilliwack, Abbotsford, and Mission. His 2007 one-man show at the Mission Art Gallery was held in conjunction with the release of his book “Around Mission”. He lives in Chilliwack.

Jeff Wilson is a Scottish-Canadian artist living and working in Vancouver.  Jeff has exhibited in a wide range of public art galleries in BC, Alberta, and Washington State, including 2018 shows at the Art Gallery of St. Albert and the Port Moody Arts Centre.  Jeff has received a number of awards, including Finalist in the inaugural Saltspring National Art Prize.  Jeff is represented by Hambleton Galleries in Kelowna and Van Dop Gallery in New Westminster.
