At the Kitimat Museum and Archives, a new display by Margaret Trenn is open to the public in the upstairs gallery from April 3rd to June 5.
Trenn’s photographic images known as the Monochrome Musings are a selection of 20 images that serve to transport the viewer to another dimension of seeing.
“The images take you on a journey where shadow, contrast, tones, shapes, and composition combine to convey the emotion of the subject in the absence of colour,” said the Kitimat Museum and Archives in a press release to the Northern Sentinel.
Making photos has always been a meditative experience for Trenn; since being gifted a film camera as a child, she found ways to observe and record her wonders and appreciation of the natural world. According to the Kitimat Museum and Archives, Trenn’s art form allows her to be immersed in nature and feel connected to the environment.
Due to covid, The museum is only open for limited hours from 10 am to 2 pm and remains closed Saturdays until July. There is no reception for this event and gallery capacity is limited to three people and masks are required upon entry to the building.
The upstairs gallery is wheelchair accessible.
