When the Days Get Shorter and the Leaves Begin to Turn…

…Parrsboro prepares for the return of Ten Days in October! After a year of putting everything on hold, cancelling events to prevent the spread of the pandemic our little town is getting busy. The International Plein Air Festival wrapped up only a couple of weeks ago. This weekend sees the return of the Parrsboro Film Festival and Ten Days in October.

So many of the attractions of Ten Days in October include the countless pop up galleries in town and up shore. I have had the privilege of witnessing one of the exhibitions coming to fruition over the past eight months. Our friend and my photography buddy Reggie Tucker has been gathering images since ice covered the beaches, shallow salt marshes and even roadside ditches. It has been wonderful to capture images, talk photography and getting together to select some of these images alongside our friend.

Regige’s exhibition opened on Friday afternoon, October 1st at The Fox Point Inn, a short drive down shore from Parrsboro. His exhibition is the first in the newly completed gallery space on the lower level. Here is the official exhibition statement:

Accompanying our friend while searching for, discovering and gathering the images, discussing the outcomes and assisting in hanging the framed images has been an honour. Here are a few images from the opening…

…and here are some impressions from the day prior when friends came together to lend a helping hand to hang the exhibition.

Should you find yourself in our awe-inspiring area during the first part of October please make sure to take in the many events Parrsboro has to offer. And do take the short drive out to the Fox Point Inn to experience the contemplative imagery of Reggie Tucker.

Best wishes for a peaceful Sunday, Anna
