Dramatic fine photography exhibition at Nakusp’s Studio Connexion Gallery


NAKUSP — Only once a year, Studio Connexion Gallery offers a photography exhibition. This year Nakusp photographer Suzanne Schneider has been invited to showcase her work. That series, Variant Vision, is on display in the fine art space until July 13.

Suzanne graduated from Kootenay School of Art in 1982. She is classically trained in film and the chemical darkroom and mostly self-taught her way through the transition to digital photographic formats. She spends part of the year in La Penita in Mexico and in Nakusp, both places that nourish her creative spirit with their charm and beauty even if they are culturally different. When she has free time, she likes to spend it on the local trails and paddling with her camera close at hands.

Curator Anne Béliveau said fine photography by Patrizia Menton, K.O. Grunther, Deb Booth have been exhibited at the gallery.

“It is always a challenge to choose whose work will be shown with so many photographers around,” says Curator Anne Béliveau.

She has been deeply impressed by Schneider’s work since she saw her first exhibition at the late ALFA Guild in 2010.

Studio Connexion Gallery is located at 203 Fifth Avenue in downtown Nakusp. Regular hours are 11 am to 4 pm, Tuesday to Saturday. Private viewings can be booked by calling 250-265-8888 for an appointment.
