The Kitimat Hospital Foundation is holding a fundraiser at the Kitimat Museum and Archives. Luminous Canvas: The Photographs of Doug Thomson is on display at the Museum. The opening was well attended by the community.
“It’s a photo show, the profits of which, if there are any, will go to the Hospital Foundation,” said Thompson. “It’s a collection of canvas prints of photos I’ve taken over the past 40 years.”
The exhibit opened with a wine and cheese on Friday, April 25th. The event will run until the 10th of May.
Thompson wanted to do a show of his photography at the museum and decided to use it to raise money for the hospital foundation. There is a raffle taking place as a part of the show.
Most of the photos are taken in Western Canada, from BC to the Yukon. A number of photos have been taken in the region including pictures of the 7 Sisters.
