Submitted by Fran Fowler–Naikoon shows -upcoming?The Naikoon Photo Show Phase 1 was held in Queen Charlotte at October’s monthly coffee house. The full house had a chance to see and vote for their three favorite? photos. This show represented all the photos, over 100, emailed in as part of your Arts Council’s celebration of 100 Years of Canadian Parks.Phase 2 will be a drop-in showing at the The Ground in Masset on Friday, Nov. 18 between noon and closing, weather permitting, in consideration of black ice and snow potential. So come on in, take a look and vote for your favorite three.Phase 3. We are hoping to post the photos to the internet, accessible through the Haida Gwaii Arts Council website. There are several entries from off island.?The deadline for voting will be December 15 with prizes out before Christmas.This has been a fun project and we especially want to thank our instructor/guides Jason Shafto and Jack Litrell; also Caroline Shooner and Carey Newell for the show location support, and certainly Beng Favreau and Pat Smith for their technical support!? Not to be forgotten both Naikoon and Gwaii Haanas and the staff of our wonderful island parks.Another show takes us from Photos to Plain Aire. Earlier there was a call to artists who wanted to go into Naikoon to paint/sketch on site. Now there is a show which will display those works and is open to other pieces inspired inspired by Naikoon! This show organized by Judy Hilgemann will open on Sunday Nov. 13 between 2-4 at Queen B’s in QC. Let’s come out and support the “arts” and enjoy our local parks. We have some of the best in the world!
