Beginning this month, the District of Sechelt will host rotating displays of photography to celebrate and promote visual arts in our community. This new Community Photography Display is located on the 2nd floor of the municipal hall/library building at 5797 Cowrie St.
After an open call to photographers on the Coast, the work of Sechelt-based Alysha Frizzell was selected for the first exhibit. Born and raised in Sechelt, Frizzell developed her love of photography in her high school art classes. After high school, she travelled around North America taking photographs for a team of competitive skateboarders in the International Downhill Federation Circuit. Frizzell said she now takes photographs just for fun, “on weekends, you can probably find me wandering the local beaches and trails with my camera in hand.”
The Sechelt Community Photo Display is an opportunity for local photographers at all stages of their career to have their work showcased to the public. Selected photographs are displayed for three months inside the municipal hall lobby where they are viewable Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Photographers from Sechelt are given priority, but applicants from across the Sunshine Coast will be considered.
