Seeking Kindness | Photographs by Robert Pierce Butler
July 30th - August 26th, 2022
We are thrilled to announce a guest exhibition a collection of evocative photography by Robert Pierce Butler!
Having spent most of his life on the family ranch in the foothills of Alberta, Robert has never been far from his cowboy roots or his muse in a camera. Through his photography, he aspires that one may choose to spend time with an image, reflect upon it and consider what is important, what has value, where the future will take us, and what we have learned from the past.
"...ultimately, my heart is held captive by the beauty of our earth and how we journey through life upon her; my hope is that kindness prevails. Every image I share is a little prayer for that hope."
Please join us for the artist's reception on July 30th from 4 - 7 p.m.
Snacks and refreshments will be offered.
As of July 30th you will be able to view the photographs online as well as in the gallery - stay tuned!
Pictured below is 'On My Way', 60 x 40; a fraction of a second that offers endless speculation about the stories of the humans glimpsed in it - one of many thought-provoking images in the show.
