Located in the alley behind 2848 E 8th Ave, Vancouver
On Friendship: An Exhibition of Portraits by Children is curated by local community leader and artist Amelia Guimarin. Guimarin led more than twenty children aged five to twelve from the Frog Hollow Nootka School Age Care program in a series of photography workshops in late March and early April. These workshops culminated with the children creating the studio-quality portraits of each other included in On Friendship.
The exhibition aims to explore how children perceive and relate to each other through the medium of photography and features one portrait from each child artist. Children have been paired so that each child has the opportunity to act as both subject and photographer. This public reception in a residential back alley shares their work with their families, friends, and the general public in a celebration that includes a community potluck.
