Selections from summer exhibit remain on display

The Blockhouse Light, PEI by Wayne BarrettWayne Barrett and Anne MacKay have published numerous books of their photography, and this past summer their images were featured in an exhibition at Ellen’s Creek Gallery in Charlottetown called A New Vision. A new vision because the works displayed were not traditional photographic prints but used the giclée process of printing. This process uses high quality pigmented inks printed on high quality fine art paper.

Another new aspect of this work is that the original photographs have been digitally modified or enhanced before printing. The original compositions are similar to what Barrett & MacKay are known for—landscapes and maritime scenes—but are now enhanced in a way which heightens colours and adds effects. 

The finished results are “painterly,” especially when printed on the archive paper, or, in some cases archival canvas.

The exhibit is over but a number of images are still on display in the gallery, Many of the images are of PEI, but some Newfoundland seascapes are included. 

In 2017 Wayne Barrett’s image of Mistaken Point in Newfoundland was selected as one of the Canadian World Heritage collector’s stamps.
