The gallery is pleased to present “CANADA & To Be a Dancer”, our first solo exhibition of work by Peter Varley (b. 1921, Toronto, ON; d. 2000, Nanaimo, BC). Varley’s career as a professional photographer is emblematic of leading photographers of his generation, mastering various techniques of the medium to become, and remain, a photographer in demand. By the 1950s, skilled photographers were key contributors to the magazine, newspaper and advertising industries. “Canada & To Be a Dancer” celebrates aspects of Varley’s contributions made over four decades through a selection of vintage B&W photographs, as well as newly printed colour photographs from vintage colour slides.
