The book is available at the Busby Centre for a gift of $75. All proceeds will support the centre’s vital programs and services.

The exhibit, a documentary series, features images of the many faces of our community, taken by fourth-semester students from Georgian’s Digital Photography and Imaging program over the past three years. Its goal is to humanize poverty and homelessness and draw attention to local social challenges. The show is on display in the Innisfil IdeaLab at the Innisfil Public Library until mid-February. It will travel to other local galleries over the next few months.

If you miss Visibly Unseen, but would like to check out the work of budding artists, visit the annual Digital Photography and Imaging Show at the Barrie Campus Gallery in the Helen and Arch Brown Centre for the Visual Arts. It starts March 6 at 7 p.m. and runs until March 23. It is curated by a team of local artists, organized by students, and features student work.
