Elkford photographer’s exhibit opens in Cranbrook

Tracey Halladay’s exhibit, ‘Through the Mist’ will be at the 1401 Gallery until November 7

Elkford photographer, Tracey Halladay’s exhibit of photography opened in Cranbrook at the 1401 Gallery on October 7.

“I would like to express my gratitude to all who came out to the Artists Reception at the Cranbrook Arts opening night of my exhibition,” said Halladay.

“It was so nice being able to share my printed photos and words with everyone, even with the tears.”

Those who visit the gallery are encouraged to share their thoughts on Halladay’s exhibit with her, either through her Facebook page or by email at traceyhalladay@gmail.com.

The exhibit, ‘Through the Mist’ is made up of images she took in black and white of mountain tops and scenes around Southeast BC and Southern Alberta while she went through trying times physically and emotionally following kidney failure. While she got a transplant, she was in for years of depression due to complications and losing mobility.

Photography came to be a tool for her to overcome hardship and find things to be happy about in life as she worked towards recovery, and today is getting back to hiking into the backcountry to capture images.

“I’ve started shooting the final chapter of the Through the Mist trilogy and hope to share it with everyone next fall,” said Halladay.

The exhibit will be on at the 1401 Gallery in Cranbrook until November 7. The Gallery is open Fridays 12:30-4:30, Saturdays 10:30-4:30, and Sundays 12:30-4:30.

“Thank you to all for taking the time to come and view my work. I hope that it touches you in some way and encourages you to reach out if you or those around you may be struggling to find the light in the darkness.”
