Photographs from Glencoe, Ontario, Canada at St. Lawrence Market - Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival

An Open Invitation to View by Andrew Blake McGill

I am pleased to announce an exhibition of 22 photographs from an ongoing series focusing on rural life and the community of Glencoe, this summer at the St. Lawrence Market, in downtown Toronto.

The exhibit, presented by the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, is a Public Installation featuring 11 double sided prints at 110" square, hanging from the ceiling of the market, above vendors where fish, produce and meat, are sold.

I would like to invite you to attend the exhibit this summer in downtown Toronto, admission is free.
The exhibition runs from April 25th until August 26, 2017 - please note the market is closed Sunday and Monday.

The photographs feature scenes of farming and rural life, as well as community gatherings and celebrations from the Fall Fair, the Tractor Pull, and more.
