An exhibit featuring the work of members from the Abbotsford Photo Arts Club opens this week at the Kariton Art Gallery (2387 Ware St.).

The Abbotsford Arts Council presents an opening reception for the show on Saturday, Feb. 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the gallery. Refreshments will be provided and the artists will be in attendance.

The show continues until March 14.

The exhibit offers a fresh visual experience of local scenes, creative compositions, and unexpected views.

From architecture to abstracts, from wildlife to wildly imaginative perspectives, this collection encompasses the works of many passionate photographers.

Creative thinkers, these artists have captured images that unlock the viewer’s imagination, allowing them to find the stories within the photographs.

Formed in 1975, the Abbotsford Photo Arts Club grew from the desire of a handful of people to continue to share their experiences and improve their photography.

The club’s main objective has always been to help amateur photographers develop and improve their proficiency.

The club organizes photo walks, exhibition nights, guest speakers, seminars, and mentoring. The club also exhibits its members’ work at community events and in local galleries.
