Wesleys in pic show

Photographs by Hugh Wesley, an award winning former veteran Toronto Sun photographer, and his daughter, Nikki Wesley, are on display at a Camera Works exhibit in Mississauga.

The father and daughter selection, and photographs from dozens of other photographers, can be viewed through Nov. 4 at the Living Arts Centre in Square One.

A Camera Works opening reception will be held this Saturday, Sept. 29, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Photographs by Hugh, Nikki and 40 other photographers can also be viewed at other venues throughout Mississauga through early October.

"Camera Works is not a huge body of work, but a juried show of photographs taken from the Month of Photography, Art in the City exhibition," Hugh, who was the Sun's photo editor when he made his exit in 2000, tells TSF.

"The exhibit will feature an eclectic mix of styles and techniques from established to emerging artists, traditional to modern works, and documentary to inventive practices," says Hugh, who won numerous photo awards in his 27 years at the Sun.

"I was excited that daughter Nikki and I were both selected to be in the group of 42 . . . but then further selected for the Camera Works exhibition."

You can also see Nikki's other selected works at the Enfield Fox Lounge, 285 Enfield Place, Mississauga, and Hugh's work at Abstract Auto Related Images at Mercedes-Benz, 6120 Mavis Road, south of the 401, until Oct 15.
