Weather forecasts call for uninterrupted rain in the Lower Mainland for the next seven consecutive days. The good news? Fans of fine-art photography can duck out of the wet stuff into Chali-Rosso Art Gallery set to host a free exhibition titled It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere featuring works by Scottish fine-art photographer David Yarrow.
Running from Oct. 17 to Nov. 10, this will be the first time Yarrow’s works are to be shown in Vancouver. Specializing in capturing wildlife, landscapes and indigenous communities, he often uses remote-controlled cameras to capture animals in environmentally sensitive and dangerous areas. For example, one of photographs in the exhibition, The Black Panther Returns (South Africa, 2019) pictured above, features a closeup head-on shot of one of the magnificent large cats.
“I have admired David Yarrow’s fine-art photography for many years, and we were thrilled when we were provided with the opportunity to showcase his work in our gallery,” said Susanna Strem, Chali-Rosso owner and curator, in a news release. “<His> photos have been exhibited in major cities all over the world and he has received worldwide acclaim.”
Guests may purchase anything on display with prices starting at $16,500. In May, one of Yarrow’s works called Mankind, which depicts a scene from South Sudan, fetched $75,000 USD at the Sotheby’s auction in London.
On opening night, guests can meet Yarrow — and special guest Canadian actress Pamela Anderson — who will be doing a book signing onsite between 5:30 and 6 p.m, followed by a short talk. Launch festivities ensue until 10 p.m. Click here to register.
