Area photographers capture a day in the life of Qualicum Beach By BRENDA GOUGH

Originally an exhibition of images displayed at The Old School House Arts Centre (TOSH), A day in the Life portrays the folks who live and work in Qualicum Beach going about their day to day business. The exhibition of photography by professionals and amateurs was originally created to celebrate the town’s 70 years of incorporation. TOSH executive director Corrine James said the organization decided to commemorate the town’s anniversary with a special Qualicum Beach calendar and exhibition of photographs taken in the area. She said they chose the Summer Solstice, June 28, 2011 for the day on which the photographs would be taken. “As the first day of summer it was a significant day, and, yet, as another Tuesday in Qualicum Beach it was not a particularly significant day.” James said they asked a wide range of photographers — from well-known artists to hobbyists — to submit their top photos of Qualicum Beach and invitations were sent to Chris Carter, Paul Kyba, Don Emerson, Rick Marotz, Wayne Buhr, Dave Graham, Brian Argyle, Lynn Bieber-Weir, members of the Oceanside Photographers Club, members of the Probus Club, student Geoffrey Campbell as well as all of the members of TOSH. Some of the the photographs published in this photo essay are of local icons that are well known to visitors and others are of the citizens who live and work in the town. James said the images include a little bit of everything. There are animals, artists and ordinary people just going about their business in Qualicum Beach from the beach to the hills. “This exhibition is based on the coffee table books we see about Canada, Australia, Hawaii, Japan, etc., that offer multiple photographic impressions recorded on a single day,” she added.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF QUALICUM BEACH “What makes it interesting is that everybody has a different photograph and when you put them together it gives a great profile of Qualicum Beach.” 2012 is a year of special celebrations for the community of Qualicum Beach and TOSH celebrates 25 years of bringing the best of the arts to the mid-island region and the school house building that is home to the Arts Centre will be 100 years old. Some of the images submitted for the photo essay have been used for the 2012 calendar, which is being sold for $10 a copy as fundraiser for TOSH. All of the photographs published in A Day in the Life are available for purchase through TOSH. TOSH is located at 122 Fern Road West.
