Of the exhibition, Castle says:
[It’s] a sampling from a project to create one complete collage per day for 365 days, each pertaining to a random thought or anything literal that sparks an idea. Currently falling behind on project due to circumstances in the real world…
Gary Castle has been a professional photographer/artist since 1968. Graduating with a diploma in Photographic Theory in 1967, he began his photographic career at Dalhousie University as a bio-medical photographer until 1981 when he opened his own custom photo-service lab. He has had numerous one-man shows of his photographic images and his photos have been published extensively in journals and books. His painting/ photo collage works have been included in many group exhibits and, along with his photographs, are in the permanent collections of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Art Bank of Nova Scotia as well as private collections.
Located inside the Visual Arts Nova Scotia office at the Halifax Seaport since 2000, the Corridor Gallery is complimented by a historical legacy of Nova Scotia culture, simple yet modern architectural elements and an array of current cultural activity in the Cultural Federations of Nova Scotia office.
