Dufferin News Contributor’s Photographs Accepted into DVSA Art Auction

Driven to Create© – DVSA 50th Golden Anniversary Annual Art Auction

Local photographer and member of Latow Photography Guild, ecmunson, has had three of her photographs accepted into the Dundas Valley School of Art’s (DVSA) Golden Anniversary [50th] Annual Art Auction, which is on from April 12 – April 17 online.  With 1200 pieces of art in this juried online event, local photographers and artists will have their work going “on the block” for several days alongside work from acclaimed artists such as Norval Morriseau.

Her pieces are Old Apple Trees, Hoary Frost, and Dry Stack Stone Fence, lots 1036, 1037, 1038, respectively.  Old Apple Trees, circa 1982, is a Limited Edition Giclee print from ecmunson’s Archival Collection: Analogue Meets Digital World.  Her original hand-pulled print of Old Apple Trees hung for six months in 2018 at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario’s In-Camera dining room at Queen’s Park. The other two are digital captures rendered as canvas prints.

ecmunson joins several Latow Photography Guild members in their traditional support of the DVSA event as a major fundraiser for its programming. The stature of this annual auction, with its draw of bidders from across Canada and internationally, makes it an equally important venue for showcasing and marketing local and regional artists and artisans.  

Along with Monique Campbell and Frank Myers, two other Latow members, ecmunson has work currently hanging in the Everything Beaux show at Beaux Arts Gallery of Brampton. Several Latow photographers frequently show at this gem of a gallery in downtown Brampton which offers themed exhibits, open calls, and has been a participant exhibition site for the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival.
