Astrom and Myers sharing space in the Fireside Room at the AGB - rare to see two significant Burlington talents in the same room.

Two of the better known photographers are hosting a  little reception for our exhibition and we’re hoping many friends will be there to see the show and visit. There will be coffee, tea and the famous AGB cookies!

Those AGB cookies might be a reason to avoid this opportunity but take a chance – Frank Myers and Rolly Astrom have consistently produced first class photography – each in their own niches.

Astrom did a superb series of photographs of male and female dancers.  His ability to catch that poetic moment is to be appreciated and admired.  Convincing the dancer to work with him is a superb example of two artists working together.

Frank Meyers travels the country looking for those scenes that few were ever going to see – the grain elevator in Herbert that will never again see as much as a bushel basket of grain gets captured showing its strength and dominance over thousands of prairie grain fields.

Event takes place between 2 and 4 p.m. in the Fireside Room at the Art Gallery of Burlington on Sunday the 15th of October.

A chance to view the work these two men have done is a treat.  But take a pass on those cookies.
