‘Meet the artist’ behind 14 Gold

Photojournalist Jenna Hauck will be hosting two 'meet the artist' days for her Olympic photo exhibition. The first one is this Friday.


If you missed the opening reception for photojournalist Jenna Hauck’s solo exhibition, 14 Gold, here’s your chance to meet her in person.

She will be hosting two ‘meet the artist’ days this month at the Chilliwack Museum. The first one takes place this Friday (Feb. 7), the same day that the Opening Ceremony will be underway in Sochi, kicking off the start of the 2014 Olympics.

The other is on Friday, Feb. 21. On both days, Hauck will be in the Chambers Gallery (upstairs in the Chilliwack Museum) from 1 to 4 p.m.

“These two Fridays will be a great chance for me to chat one-on-one with people who were unable to attend the opening reception, and to tell them more about my Olympic journey and the stories behind the photos,” says Hauck.

There were more than 150 people who came out to the opening reception on Jan. 18.

“I’ve had a lot of wonderful feedback from people who saw the show, plus I’ve had several inquiries from others who would like to see the exhibition. That’s why I’m having these two ‘meet the artist’ days.”

She thought it would be a nice gesture to be available to talk with gallery visitors on some of the Fridays that the museum is open.

Hauck’s exhibition, 14 Gold: Images from the 2010 Olympics, is on display at the Chilliwack Museum until Feb. 27. Hours are Mondays to Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for seniors and students.

Hauck will be at the museum on Feb. 7 and 21, from 1 to 4 p.m.
