Venetian Pink is one of Kat Wahamaa's favourite pieces in her upcoming show at the Mission Arts Centre gallery.

Find Openings at Mission art gallery

Kat Wahamaa's photograph exhibit will be on display from Nov. 6 to Nov. 24

A well-known local musician is putting on a different kind of show at the Mission Arts Centre this month.

Kat Wahamaa’s photograph exhibition, Openings, will be on display from Nov. 6 to Nov. 24 with an artist reception on Nov. 9 at 7 p.m.

The photographs in this show reflect these themes with “openings” from such disparate locales as England, Crete, Japan, Key West, Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. Of the images many are represented directly from eye to camera to print, as she uses the camera simply as an artist’s  tool.  Others, she has digitally transformed into abstract paintings on giclée canvas.

One of Wahamaa’s favourite pieces is Venetian Pink from Reythmnon, a city in Crete. It features a segment of the Rimondi fountain and a building with bright colours, textures, archways, and of course openings.

Wahamaa says she has always been fascinated by openings.

“Doors, windows or archways, manifest architectural detail, give history lessons and become works of art at the hand of the elements.  Those openings found in nature, and those within us suggest another way of being or perceiving.  All offer an invitation.”

The opening for the exhibit will feature live music and refreshments. The Mission Arts Centre is located at 33529 First Avenue.
