Scott Conarroe 'By Sea' exhibition article in Metro News


Photo exhibit captures N. American coastline


"TORONTO - North America's coastline, like ocean shores around the world, could be transformed dramatically by climate change. Edmonton-born photographer Scott Conarroe has trained his lens on the continent's perimeter to capture scenes before that happens.

His exhibition "By Sea" appears at the Stephen Bulger Gallery from March 3 to April 2.

Conarroe began photographing Quebec's Gaspe Peninsula, Newfoundland and the Maritimes in summer 2009. He worked his way south to the Florida Keys by December and then up the Pacific coast to Alaska in spring 2010...." - The Canadian Press

THE SILENT PARTNER

Dir. Daryl Duke (Canada: 1978), 106 mins

The Silent Partner is a Canadian crime film directed by Canadian Daryl Duke. Miles Cullen, played by Elliot Gould, plays a bank teller in a small Toronto mall. He learns that the bank he works at is about to be robbed and knows who is going to commit the crime. With this previous knowledge he puts the money he received that day into his lunchbox instead of the bank’s till. The robber, played by Christopher Plummer, ends up stealing much less money than the theft or the bank expected. Once the burglar realizes he has been outsmarted by Miles, a battle of wits begins for the hidden money and involves more people than either expected.

In 1978 The Silent Partner won 2 Canadian Film Awards for best picture and best director. The Silent Partner is also one of the few films to have a score composed by Oscar Peterson and features an early big-screen appearance by John Candy.

LAST NIGHT

Dir Don McKellar (Canada: 1998), 95 mins

Last Night is a film that looks at the notion of knowing the exact minute the world is going to end. Set in Toronto, the film follows interconnecting characters during their last moments on Earth. Patrick Wheeler, played by the films director Don McKellar, plays a grieving widow hoping to spend his last hours alone, drink and remembering his deceased wife. Other characters in the film have different ideas of how they would like to spend their last night; whether it is being with family, dedicating their last moments to their personal business, living out sexual fantasies or committing suicide. In all the chaos and anarchy some find their wishes maybe impossible to fulfill.

The film has an almost entirely Canadian cast including Don McKellar, Sandra Oh, David Cronenberg and Sarah Polley.

Torontoist article about The Toronto Show


Seeing the City in The Toronto Show

Anyone who grew up in the periphery of this city and took photography in high school might remember taking a class trip to Toronto. It was a way to shake us out of relentlessly photographing our friends leaning on cars and our parents’ dog sitting in front of that semi-privacy, pressure-treated, backyard fence. Simple idea—change of scenery, change of scale, change of pace. The results certainly weren’t earth shattering, but they were eye opening. Buildings were form and contrast, street corners were urban compositions. Maybe it’s the unfamiliarity that makes a place seem extra visible....
