The photographs that constitute George Webber’s extraordinary thirty-five year photographic journey of the Canadian prairies are a rare blend of art and documentation. Focusing on the austere architecture of the small, abandoned, and dying towns of the Canadian prairies, Webber gives us images that speak of the past and the ephemeral. The fleeting quality of life and human endeavor, the cyclical nature of time, and our relationship to place are considered through the lens of a photographer intimately connected to his surroundings and acutely aware of the passage of time.

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 18 1:00pm-3:00pm.
