Exhibit showcases B.C.’s history

New show at the Hope Arts Gallery features Delphine and Fred Gornall

Delphine and Fred Gornall will highlight some of B.C.’s rich and diversified heritage in October’s Back Room show at the Hope Arts Gallery.

The October Back Room show at the Hope Arts Gallery will feature the work of photographers Delphine and Fred Gornall.

They have highlighted some preserved and some not so preserved reminders of B.C.’s rich and diversified history in an exhibit called B.C.’s Heritage Through Our Lens: A tribute to those who came before.

Delphine is a long-time student of art, having completed a number of art courses in universities across Canada.

She has worked in many media and recently added photography to her repertoire. She quickly proved her ability by winning several awards.

Fred’s mother, an accomplished painter, home-schooled Fred in art basics from an early age.

He started photography as a teenager and by the age of 25, he had developed his own style and won a number of important photography awards. Even though a career in business took first place, he continued to win awards, publish works and teach classes in photography.

With retirement, Fred and Delphine now have the time to further pursue their photography interest.

They started Select Images in Agassiz, which offers a wide range of images in a selection of framed and frame-ready prints as well as greeting cards. To view their work, visit selectimagesbc.ca.

An artist’s reception will be held on Oct. 14 from 2-4 p.m.

Hope Arts Gallery is located is 349 Fort St.
