Zooming in on Chilliwack photographs

The show is by the Cornerstone Print Group, with photographers across the Lower Mainland, and the Chilliwack Photography Club.

A photography exhibit, Light and Shape, zooms in on the work of two local groups in the art gallery in the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The new show unites the Cornerstone Print Group, founded by the late Jim Britton, with photographers from all over the Lower Mainland, and the Chilliwack Photography Club.

Many of the members of the Cornerstone group were taught about light by Jim Britton, said CVAA spokesperson Mary Chalmers Main. They worked on applying those skills and some have gone on to become professional, she says.

The show runs until October 13, and kicks off with the Opening Reception, open to the public, on Saturday Sept. 8 from noon to 2 p.m.

An ‘adult content’ advisory will be posted on-site, as the exhibit does include some nudes, she said.

“They are in no way exploitative, but are art works from the various artists.”
