Enchanted: A Photo Art Exhibition
A solo exhibition by local chiropractor, Dr. Janis Guthy, will be on display at the Tidemark Art Gallery from April 2-25th. Enchanted: A Photo Art Exhibition is a continuation of her phantasmagorical photo art, with this years show centering around the Enchanted Forest. The backgrounds come from photographs she has taken of the natural temperate rain forests, swamps and waters of Vancouver Island. These forests, however, are far from ordinary. Hunched on a tree stump you will meet the Scribe who rules with wisdom and understanding. Bold knights, ogres, princesses, magical horses, mermaids and mystical fish complete the story.
Being a multi-media artist, Dr. Guthy integrates skills of fashion design, sculpture, painting and set design. Debuting at the exhibit is Our Lady of Light, a seven-foot sculpture, her head and body totally covered in gems. She wears a three-tiered skirt in which three hundred crystals hang. Her reflection illuminates a path where you will find the rarest of all treasures. Journey with us to where one moves beyond the boundaries of the senses and the mind leaps beyond time and space.
Dr. Guthy holds two photo shoots per year – the next shoot is coming up May 19th -28th. Please visit her website for further information. www.guthygalleries.ca
