After delays due to postponed residencies and travel restrictions, I'm so happy to finally see this new body of work come to life on the walls of Smokestack Gallery in Hamilton this spring.  From their website:

What Time is This Place? A solo-exhibition of photographs by Sylvia Galbraith.

Using camera obscura and pinhole techniques in historic outport buildings, Galbraith’s projections interweave the contemporary state of built environments with exterior views of the surrounding coastal landscapes that have remained constant. Drawing the title from a book of the same name by Kevin Lynch, What Time is This Place?  presents an examination of deep-rooted connections between people and their places of origin within the context of displacement, resettlement and renewal.

Smokestack Gallery is located in Hamilton, at The Cotton Factory on Sherman Street.  Exhibition and opening reception details can be found here.

Winter 2023 - I've been sitting on this email since last August, but now that the magazine is coming out, I can finally share the news...

"Dear Sylvia, 
I am so pleased to tell you that your submission, CATALINA COAST, has won this year’s Riddle Fence Visual Art Grand Prize! Our editors loved the piece, and we’re so excited that you submitted it to us. "Catalina Coast" will run in Issue 50, which is a doubly exciting anniversary issue, packed with truly amazing writers and artists. The issue will be out in early December 2023." 

Riddle Fence is a hub for fast-paced literature from Newfoundland & Labrador, across Canada, and around the world, unearthing the best contemporary writing and art.  The magazine is published four times per year, and is full of poetry, fiction, features and reviews alongside visual art.  I'm completely blown away by this award.  Wow.

Winter 2023 - After some procrastinating, a lot of sorting, and tons of help from Digital Main Street, I'm happy to let you know that my online store is now live.  You can shop for photographs - limited editions, framed work, or some of my latest alternative process photographs, some of which are one-of-a-kind unique prints, and some that are reprinted on fine art paper, depending on the process used to create the original work. I have also included options for purchasing gift certificates which can be used for lessons, artwork or custom printing of your own photographs. You can check it out here:
