22 Apr 2017 – 9 Jul 2017

Organized and circulated by the Art Gallery of Windsor the exhibition includes nine bodies of work by the nationally recognized photographic artist Brenda Francis Pelkey, dating from 1988 through 2015. Pelkey lives in Windsor and has made major photographic series in Ontario, Saskatchewan and rural Nova Scotia, where she has resided in the past.

Place and landscape are central to Pelkey’s subject matter, as were people until 1994. Many of her photographs of landscapes and architectural interiors are consciously staged, by means of lighting effects, protracted exposure, mirroring, and the addition of text and auditory components. The exhibition will appear partly in MSVU Art Gallery and partly in MSVU Library, which is in a linked, adjacent building.

ARTIST’S TALK Saturday 22 April at 2pm
Pelkey will present an illustrated talk about her work followed by a tour of the MSVU Library portion of the installation, and a reception in the gallery.

PANEL DISCUSSION Saturday 27 May at 2pm
Halifax-based artists Susan McEachern and Wilma Needham will discuss how their studio practices intersect with Pelkey’s photography over the course of her career, particularly the feminist aspects.
