Sun Peaks resident Bill Fell will have his work on display March 8 to 16 in the Art Exposed Regional Exhibition at the Old Courthouse in Kamloops.

He will enter two images in the Established Artist category. Each image was taken in Sun Peaks on the ski run Back in Time.

“I created a series of four photographs of the patterns created by the frost on the fallen leaves and have selected two of the images to enter,” Fell said.

“This will be my fifth year entering the exhibition,” he added. “In 2015 one of my photographs was awarded third place in the established artist category and another of my images was judged second last year, 2018, again in the established artist category. It is an honour to receive awards from the jurors but the feedback from the public who attend the exhibition is the most rewarding. ”

Bill Fell has lived in Sun Peaks since 2013. Photo supplied

Fell began his photography career in the 1980s and has since designed and taught courses and impressed people across the country with his landscape and nature shots.

Since moving to Sun Peaks in 2013 he’s focused on capturing nature scenes in black and white, hand processing each negative and print in his own darkroom to archival standards.

The opening reception takes place March 8 from 6 to 8 p.m. and the show will be open daily March 8 to 16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The exhibition is focused on community arts and Thompson Nicola Regional District residents can submit work from any medium. More than 200 pieces will fill the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre to be viewed or purchased.
