What’s on at Cranbrook Arts for the month of October

New exhibits, classes and workshops

For The Townsman

Ethereal images from Elkford photographer Tracey Halladay will be on display in the Cranbrook Arts 1401 Gallery for the month of October.

The exhibit opens Friday, Oct. 7 with a reception from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00p.m. From then on, opening hours will be every Friday 12:30 – 4:30 p.m., Saturdays, 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sundays 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., until the end of the month.

Tracey Halladay has battled major health issues in the last few years but that hasn’t stopped this courageous woman from following her dreams – turning to professional photography for inspiration and solace. She hikes in the mountains gathering up-close and personal images of wildlife. Her ‘Through the Mist’ black and white series of opposing dark and stormy, light and soothing images reflect some of the many emotions Tracey has grappled with over the last few years.

Tracey would like people to view this exhibit as a source of inspiration to never give up no matter what life throws at you. We hope to see many of you there.
