GORDON SMITH GALLERY
ARTISTS FOR KIDS
The Gallery is open Wednesdays - Saturdays from noon to 5:00 p.m. The Gallery is closed on the weekends of Statutory Holidays.
Each year, select secondary students participate in a 3-day intensive photography program. Students work with a variety of industry professionals culminating in publication in the North Shore News.
This year students had the opportunity to work with Michael Love and to visit both the Brittania Mine and the Stave Lake Hydro Electric plant. Students researched the sites and made work that really captured the atmosphere of a specific place.
In 2017, Artists for Kids had the pleasure of working with Mike Wakefield from the North Shore News. They were able to gain access to the Seaspan Shipyards, as well as photograph at 1000 Parker Street in Vancouver, and Function Junction in Whitler. The students were encouraged to look at these industrial spaces and think about how humanity impacts and is impacted by nature.
In 2016, the focus was on landscape and environmental photography, with noted professional photographer Jess Findlay.
