Fernie photographer Rob Plato is getting ready to hold his first solo exhibition at The Arts Station later this month.

Focusing on fine art photography, Plato has created an exhibition seeking to display the best of a decade of photos.

Working with both digital and 35mm formats, Plato also uses a new hanging system that involves developing the photos as transparencies which are then shown in a new LED wall mounted backlit framing system that allows for the displayed images to be extremely colourful as well as visually stimulating.

Plato has lived in Fernie for 12 years and has a formal education in visual arts behind him.

He won an art competition held through The Arts Station with his image, “Salvador Side Street” many years ago.

“The Arts Station is so pleased to be able to welcome Rob back and is proud to be hosting his amazing exhibition of photographs spanning his years of extensive travelling both domestic and international,” said Courtney Baker at The Arts Station.

There will be an opening reception March 31 from 7 to 9 p.m. where Plato will be showing a real “slide show” as well as a digital presentation of the images that have inspired and created the last 10 years. By revisiting his roots and focusing on fine art and travel photography Plato has developed an amazing show that is not to be missed.

The show will run from Thursday, March 31 to Tuesday, April 26 at The Arts Station, Fernie.
