This is Canada's Game - Our Love of Hockey
Exhibition dates: March 12, 2019, to April 20, 2019
Exhibition opening and artist's talk: Thursday, March 14, at 7:00 p.m.
The sport of hockey has long been a meaningful part of Jodi Maxwell-Lee's life. She practically grew up in a rink, watching her dad and brothers play. In recent years, you would find her cheering in the stands at her boys' hockey games, most often with a camera in hand. When photographing hockey, she captures images that show the spirit of the sport, not just images of her own children. Her images show the community of volunteer coaches, families, and teammates. Her images show the excitement of competition and the exhilaration of outdoor gameplay. Her images celebrate hockey, a sport loved by so many Canadians.
The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
