The Varley Art Gallery of Unionville, Ontario, presents Scott Canarroe’s By Rail, a touring exhibition organized and circulated by the Art Gallery of Windsor. By Rail will be at the Varley Art Gallery from September 10 through November 6. The opening will be September 11, from 2 to 4 pm, with Scott Conarroe in attendance. On October 16, at 2 pm, the gallery will host a tour and discussion with curator James Patten, on the role and history of the railways and issues in contemporary photography.
In 2007, Scott Conarroe traveled across North America documenting railway structure. This exhibition of contemplative photographs documents that journey and shows train tracks in environments largely devoid of people or trains, evoking a range of responses in viewers. Conarrie was recently awarded the prestigious Duke and Duchess of York Prize in Photography for 2011.
