Beautiful Destruction - Alberta Tar Sands Aerial Photographs
Ottawa Public Art Gallery
July 23 - September 26, 2010
A few images of the 2010 exhibition at Ottawa City Hall Art Gallery. The exhibition was organized into several 'rooms' to create themed spaces for tar ponds, open pit mining and such people scaled things as camps and machinery. An enclave was also established for viewers to sit and reflect, read the artist statement & image captions, and write down their thoughts and comments.
Over 10,000 visited the exhibition. Five hundred people left comments some filling entire pages.
