Every spring and summer, the Squamish Arts Council (SAC) hosts an art exhibit showcasing local creativity, and this year the group is seeking to ignite locals’ passion for their home region with a uniquely inclusive photography display.
Beginning Saturday, May 26, amateur and professional photographers and IPhoneographers are invited to bring their favourite photos “of all the positive things you love about Squamish” to the SAC building in Pavilion Park for the “I Love Squamish” exhibit, SAC officials said in a statement.
On May 26 and subsequent Saturdays, photographers may bring their photos between noon and 2 p.m. to be put on display.
To be eligible, photos must depict something in the area between Britannia Beach and the Callaghan Valley including events, viewscapes, wonderful volunteer groups and even that special garden planter box. The prints should not be framed but because they will be pinned, they should either be printed with a border or attached to a piece of paper, on which photographers may put their names and details about why the image is special to them.
Photos must be the photographer’s own work. Each person may submit up to 10 shots. Copyright and all other rights will remain with the photographer, but may be published on the SAC website with the photographer’s credit line.
