Fern Helfand’s About Looking ~ A Photo Essay

Recently our newest oook.ca contributor Hanss Lujan, took some great photos of at the opening of Fern Helfand’s show called “About Looking” at the Vernon Public Art Gallery. We  present them here to you as a photo essay, to give you a glimpse of just what a terrific show this is.

All the images are of various museum installations in Canada, China and Paris, France that recreate the outdoors and their animal inhabitants within a museum environment. The portraits of the individual taxidermied animal portraits come largely from local collectors and museums.  Fern’s show is up at the Vernon Public Art Gallery until Dec 21st, if you decide to take in the show in person. Also, Fern will be giving a talk about her work Nov 19th at 1pm at the Vernon Public Art Gallery.
