Longtime local photographer will hold pop-up exhibit in Ormstown

A local artist will have a collection of their works on display for two weeks this month. Over two hundred photographs will be showcased depicting scenes of nature, flowers, and the occasional Chateauguay Valley landmark. An otherwise empty storefront on Ormstown’s main street is currently being reshaped to accommodate the art and will be open to the public for the latter half of April.

With this past winter making many feel like spring would never come, it will be a nice escape to walk into a space filled with the vivid colours of summer and the familiar flowers that seem so far from reach this time of year. Every photo in this collection is entirely unedited; they are shown exactly as you would witness them with the naked eye.

The artist, who wishes to remain unnamed for the time being, is a longtime resident of Ormstown with a passion for nature and the outdoors. They have over forty years of experience with photography, and their exhibit showcases pieces pulled from decades of photos. Although this artist has displayed the occasional piece in the Valley, this is the first time a collection of this size has been put together. If you care about art and have taken the time to visit the many local photography exhibitions, you may recognize some of these prints.

This ever-evolving exhibition will open to the public on Sunday, April 14, at 4 p.m. Both prints and some small works showcasing the photographs will be available for sale, and some light refreshments will be served throughout the evening. The pieces on display will vary as the month progresses to make room for different collections in other styles.

The store building at 55 Lambton Street in Ormstown will host this collection from April 14-30. The full schedule will be announced at a later date. There will be a chance to see works by other local artists during the last few days of the exhibition. If you or someone you know is interested in putting a piece on display, please visit the gallery and you may have the opportunity to have your art featured.
