An opening reception takes place Saturday, Oct. 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. for a new exhibition at Kariton Art Gallery (2387 Ware St.).

Photographer Len Jellicoe and environmentalist painter Tracie Stewart will share their work and love of the environment in their joint show, Our Environment as We See it.

Stewart was born in Terrace, B.C. She has been an environmental artist in B.C. and abroad for 30 years.

In her work (pictured at left), she builds layers using graphite, composition, translucent acrylics, texture and topographical maps.

Using maps, she draws on the context of a location and creates historical references, allowing people to identify with a location and inspire them with adventure.

Jellicoe is a photographer fascinated by birds and mammals. He enjoys the challenge of capturing an image that may never be captured again.

He spends countless hours in post-production, editing his photographs, mounting, framing and sorting through his collection for the perfect shot.

Both Stewart and Jellicoe will attend the opening reception. The exhibition continues until Nov. 10. For more information, visit abbotsfordartscouncil.com.
