Rewind: 10 Years of ViewPoint

When: Feb. 3-28 2010

This year marks ViewPoint Gallery's 10th as a photographers' and printmakers' cooperative, and members are marking the anniversary with a retrospective show. Sue Mills, former ViewPoint member, current photographer and  one of the coordinators for *Rewind*, says all ViewPoint alumni and current members were given a chance to be part of the show; with 22 artists listed (including Mills), the gallery's entire ground floor space will be filled with more than 60 works of photography and printmaking. "It's not going to be old work, it's going to be whatever the artist wants to show at this time," says Mills. "So there's a big mixture." Mills, who now lives in Quebec, will be flying into Halifax for Thursday's opening reception---and her last showing with ViewPoint. She remembers becoming a member of the gallery in 2002, when she was walking through an exhibition at Pier 21 and the exhibiting artist told Mills she should walk over to ViewPoint's then Gottingen Street location. "I saw work on the wall that I just loved...and I thought yes, I'd really like to be a part of it." –Holly Gordon
