The Lethbridge Photography Club is hosting its annual Photo Fusion showcasing club members’ works in a two-day event Monday and Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Sasa community room.

Photo Fusion is a free admission event and will display varying digital slides featuring the talents from Lethbridge Photography Club members. Member Gail Shaw described Friday what spectators can expect for the first show on Monday.

“Our first show is going to be polar bears from Churchill. One of our members has taken a trip to Churchill, Manitoba,just to see the polar bears. So he’s got his show on the polar bears,” said Shaw.

Shaw said local photographer will be displaying wildlife and has also shown his work in the past at the local library.

“We’ve got one of our local photographers who does a lot of wildlife photography, and I think he’s done some shows or done some presentations at the library as well,” she said.

Shaw noted approximately 15 different members of the Lethbridge Photography Club will display their works at the Monday show. The complete show will be around two hours with a 15-to-20-minute intermission.

Some of the photographers in the show are John Anvik, Ralph Arnold, Gord Ayers, George Clayton, Wayne Dwornik, Judy Gundlock, Lorelei Hoffarth, Darcy Ingram, John Krampl, Donna Kroeger, Rhonda Kupsch, Byron Lee, Dominique Liboiron, Denise Nilsson, Doug Petriw, Gail Shaw and Blair Takahashi.

Shaw said during the intermission spectators may be able to meet some of the photographers. She expressed there will also be some abstract works display within the show and, “amazing night photography.”

She voiced the beauty behind some of the abstract photography work. “Photography is top notch. And like I said the (members) do some abstract work. It’s amazing what they can do with photography,” said Shaw.
