Wildlife photographs Clancy and Jenny Wolpert part of nine artist show

This photo by Clancy Wolpert is one of several pieces that will be on display this weekend at Harrison Hot Springs. The free exhibit features nine Fraser valley artists including Clancy and his wife Jenny

Clancy and Jenny Wolpert will be among nine Fraser Valley photographers taking part in Nature Exposed, a photo  exhibit.

The show is being sponsored by Tourism Harrison and the Harrison Resort and Spa this weekend in Harrison Hot Springs.

The public is invited to the free event in the Canada Room at the Harrison Resort & Spa on Saturday and Sunday, Nov 24-25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Since retirement, the Wolperts have rarely been seen without cameras in their hands.

Clancy is known locally for his love of Thacker Marsh and its inhabitants. He will also be sharing his fascination with grizzly bears.

Jenny is recognized for her wide ranging interests in the visual arts and is an artist with the Hope Arts Gallery.

Both have been amazed by the birds encountered in the last few years. The photography exhibited will be for sale, but this exhibition is also an opportunity for Jenny and Clancy to share some of their wild life sightings and experiences with the community.

Fred Gornall, co-organizer of the show promises a wide range of pictures, both framed and unframed as well as 2013 calendars and greeting cards that depict local scenes which will be available.
