John and Janet Foster - 'Behind the Camera'
Date:May 10, 2018
Time:7:00pm - 9:00pm
Location:Marble Arts Centre, 13 Bridgewater Road, Actinolite
Join the Tweed & Area Arts Council at the Marble Arts Center in Actinolite (in the ‘Greater Tweed Area’) to enjoy a presentation of the spectacular photography of John and Janet Foster. Long-time residents of the Tweed area, but recognized internationally for their talent, they have a deep appreciation for Hastings County and what it offers in wildlife and natural habitats. For the last 40 years they have brought a love of nature to their television documentaries.
“Behind the Camera” is a blend of video and still images that take you to some of John and Janet’s favourite places for filming and photography. They will share their early discovery of Algonquin Park, their love of canoeing and paddling in the early morning mist. They will take us to the wonderfully clear green waters and soaring limestone cliffs of the Bruce Peninsula, and travel to Nova Scotia in winter to witness hundreds of bald eagles. We’ll see the extraordinary flights of immense flocks of shorebirds that migrate south from the high arctic in mid-summer. And, finally, their local journeys to film winter snow squalls will show us the dramatic icy scenes along the lakeshore of Prince Edward County.
The art of nature photography and film making, and “being in the right place at the right time,” are central themes of the presentation.
Tickets for ‘Behind the Camera’ are available at Bush Furniture, the Tweed News, from Board members, or at the door, $10; $8 for T&AAC members, Children $2.
Admission Fee: $10; $8 for T&AAC members, Children $2.
