F8 Photography Collective, ‘Openings’ Exhibit

F8 Photography Collective, ‘Openings’ Exhibit


Showing Oct 18 – Oct 31, 2022 at Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street


F8 Photography Collective (‘F8’) celebrates its fourteenth year of creating contemporary photography, with an exhibition in Toronto’s lively West Queen West area. The show ‘Openings’ is on at Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street, October 18 to 31, 2022.  F8 members Maureen Littlewood, Catherine MacKinnon, Rod Trider, John Wallace are participating with guest artists Lily Markovic, Colleen Pollack, Anthony Schatzky and Jonathan Ward.

F8’s in-person photo exhibits like ‘Abstracts & Abstractions’ in Nov 2021 seem like distant stars in the galaxy during pandemic lockdown. But after strong response to ‘Abstracts & Abstractions’ at Dignam Gallery, F8 looks forward to its ‘Openings’ photo exhibit at Artscape Youngplace in Oct 2022. ‘Openings’ suggests transition between environments and states. Each of the 8 photographers has a unique perspective so you will see images with a diverse interpretation, subject matter, or representation. Images could be architectural. They could be from nature – a flower unfurling, a break in the clouds, a crack in the ice, the beak of a bird call. They could show how we emerge from lockdown to enjoy a street scene or recreation, and how our lives may have changed.

You are invited to tour the F8 exhibit in the Artscape Youngplace 2nd floor hallway gallery from Oct 18 to 31, Monday to Saturday, 9 to 5 pm and Sunday, 12 to 5 pm.  Visiting hours are extended when the artists are in attendance. The artists will be present Fri Oct 21, 5 to 8 pm; Sat Oct 22, 2 to 5 pm; Fri Oct 28, 5 to 8 pm; and Sat Oct 29, 2 to 5 pm. Join us in this heritage building, Doors Open site & former school repurposed for community programming and cultural events. COVID-19 guidelines re masks, distancing and vaccinations may apply for safety of all. Reach Artscape Youngplace via Queen St 501 streetcar, on foot, or by road.
