'Beyond the Mists of Magog'

Solo Art Show features ‘Quiet Light’ Photos

Adam Gibb's photography is on display until August 30 at the Ranger Station Art Gallery

The Ranger Station Art Gallery has a solo exhibit on now by photographer Adam Gibbs.

Running until the end of August, Gibb’s show is all about beauty in nature.

“I have presented a body of work that spans across many years of taking images of nature,” writes Gibbs in an email interview. “The common thread would be ‘Quiet Light’. I love soft, sublime light and find it is my favourite time to take images.”

For Gibbs, inspiration is found in just being outdoors. While he has always enjoyed the outdoors, he says, “photographsy is really just an excuse to get outside.”

Of course, featuring nature in photographs puts Gibbs at the mercy of the elements. He says it can take hours, sometimes days to get the light he is looking for and even then it guarantees nothing.

“Having lots of patience is definitely a virtue,” he writes.

He hopes by viewers looking at his work, it will provide some insight into our natural world.

“I do think that as time goes on there seems to be a real disconnect between ourselves and the natural world,” says Gibbs. “Perhaps in a small way my images reconnect people.”

One of Gibb’s favourite images is one called ‘Beyond the mists of Magog’. He says many people do a double take once they discover the reflection of Mt. Assiniboine in the foreground pond.

Gibbs says the artist reception Sunday, Aug. 2 at the gallery was good.

“I was particularly moved by the enthusiasm and help from Aimee, Rosa and the Kent Harrison Arts Committee,” shares Gibbs. “This is my first solo show. I think that the gallery is a great fit for the type of photographs that I have to show.”

Adam Gibb’s photography is on display from now until August 30 at the Ranger Station Art Gallery, located at 98 Rockwell Drive, Harrison Hot Springs.
