Fine Art Photography in Memorial Hall ~ Memorial Hall will be the new home for a collection of stretched canvas prints that are the work of our Minister of Faith, Rev. Roger There are scenes from Truro & area and such locations as Peggy’s Cove, Lower Economy and Halifax Public Gardens. Roger creates his prints by employing a photo-painting process that is unique to his understanding of light and colour in Photographic Art. Roger is interested in the school of Contemplative Photography, moving beyond the mere technical aspects to reflecting on how the eye, mind and imagination work together to produce fine works of artistic prints that expand your vision of the world around you. The prints are all for sale, for a suggested donation. All funds received go directly to the work of First United Church. See Tracy in the Office.
