Photography by Lionel Stevenson at Watermark Theatre 

Until August 31
Watermark Gallery

Lionel Stevenson (photo: Terry Dunton Stevenson)Works by the distinguished Canadian photographer from New Glasgow, PEI, Lionel F. Stevenson, will be on display at Watermark Theatre’s gallery this summer. 

Mr. Stevenson studied photography in Toronto and was awarded Canadian Photographer of the Year in 1967. In 1977 he founded a commercial photography and design studio, Camera Art in Charlottetown which he operated until his death in 2017.

Lionel embarked on a great number of photographic projects, including “Elders of Island” which is a collection of 30 portraits of Island elders purchased by the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, a series of architectural books with Scott Smith and “Document of Our Times” a 1978 exhibition at The Confederation Centre that recorded Island life.

In 2012-13 Lionel had a retrospective, “50 Years of Photographs” at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery, which revealed to the viewer the range and dedication of his talent. To quote Pan Wendt, curator of Lionel’s retrospective, “If the photograph has always been a matter of evidence, Lionel Stevenson’s photographs are evidence not only of moments in the past but the lasting strength of the attentive hand and eye.”

The Watermark Gallery in North Rustico is open daily except Sundays until August 31. Call the theatre for operating hours at 902-963-3963.
