At our Baker Street location Cranbrook Arts Presents “Being Wild: A Show of Photographic Works by Aaron Oliveri”. Aaron’s goal as a photographer is to share great images, and get people excited about the world we live in. Aaron is a wildlife photographer from Cranbrook, BC. Taking after his father, Aaron started to learn how to photograph in 2012 when he joined his father on a trip to Alaska. Aaron always enjoyed the outdoors but this is when his passion for photography took off. Aaron never knows what he will photograph on his trips but he tries to capture the life, expression, and intensity of the subject. Aaron’s most recent achievement includes taking his first pictures of a lynx with its kittens. It was said of Aaron’s work that “it invokes emotion of the wild reality that surrounds us.” His images are real and natural and remind us of the raw truth of what lies outside of the city lights.” The opening reception of this breathtaking exhibit is on Saturday, February 8th from 1-3 at 1013 Baker Street. Come and talk with Aaron about his work. Refreshments will be served.

Directed by Garry Keane, Andrew McConnell. In this cinematic journey through Gaza we unfold a portrait of its ordinary people who attempt to lead meaningful lives beyond the rubble of perennial conflict. Gaza brings together an eloquent, resilient and courageous group of souls, whose struggle, resilience and sense of family goes to the very heart of humanity…a people whose lives are shaped by conflict but not defined by it. Whether some people want to accept reality or not, this documentary accurately portrays the hardships of the Palestinians of Gaza. We know who is responsible, but this film (rightly) focuses on the everyday lives of Palestinians to create a powerful and critical message to anyone concerned with humanity.
