A look behind the lens with APAC in Chilliwack

Abbotsford Photo Arts Club presents its show ‘From Behind the Lens’ at Art Room Gallery

Gain a glimpse From Behind the Lens with the Abbotsford Photo Arts Club and Chilliwack Community Arts Council this fall. Featuring a collection of evocative works by these passionate artists, this collaborative exhibition will highlight the inspiration behind the finished image.

Showcasing the talents of local photographers, From Behind the Lens offers a fresh visual experience with local scenes, creative compositions, and unexpected views. From architecture and abstracts to wildlife and wildly imaginative perspectives, this collection encompasses the works of many passionate photographers. As creative thinkers, these artists are deeply engaged with both local surroundings and the broader world. They have captured images that unlock the viewer’s imagination, allowing them to find the stories within the photographs.

The unique combination of a camera lens and each photographer’s intuitive eye brings their artistic vision to life. Today’s photographer can harness the power of technology in digital cameras and computer software. The greatest tool, however, is the passion that drives one to pick up the camera and search for images through its lens. Share the joy of photography and experience the creativity and skill of photographers who love to be behind the lens.

Established in 1975, the Abbotsford Photo Arts Club brings together individuals with a collective desire to share and improve their photography skills in an encouraging environment. In addition to providing opportunities for artists to learn new techniques and exhibit their work, the club organizes social gatherings for its members throughout the year. The Abbotsford Photo Arts Club actively invites new members to join the club by attending one of their meetings, held on the first and third Mondays of the month between September and June.
