Photographer and Arctic veteran Martin Lipman, who has worked for years with our partners at the Canadian Museum of Nature, has been photographing winners of the Governor General’s Award for visual arts since 2005.
A Sight Better: Governor General’s Award Winners in Visual and Media Arts, 2005-2013 collects those portraits for public display. The show opens June 14th at the School of Photographic Arts Redwall Gallery in Ottawa. A complimentary exhibition opens June 17th at Exposure Gallery.
Martin Lipman will also present an artist talk at Exposure Gallery on Thursday June 20th at 6:30 pm. Martin will discuss his experiences travelling around Canada and photographing some of this country’s most influential artists.
(We hope Martin will tell the story of being present for the discovery of the Arctic camel on Ellesmere Island.)
