Ken Ketchum Art Retrospective at
Harbour House Hotel Restaurant and Organic Farm

Ken Ketchum has been actively involved in Salt Spring’s art scene since 2004.He has been a regular participant in the annual Photosynthesis photography show, as well as a represented artist at last year’s Attachments show at Mahon Hall. His sculptural pursuits have given him recognition at the “Chairity” benefit at Mahon Hall and Velo Village “Parts Project”.
Ketchum’s background is in fine art, and for the last 15 years he has been showing photography at galleries in San Francisco, Seattle, Victoria, and Salt Spring Island. Now he is going back to his roots by adding painting and drawing to his gallery offerings.
For the month of September he will be showing paintings drawings, and photography at The Harbour House Hotel, Restaurant and Organic Farm. There will be a reception at the restaurant on Wednesday September 5 at 7:00 pm.
Harbour House is looking forward to having you come and enjoy Ken Ketchum’s art in the hotel lobby and restaurant.

Photosynthesis Opening- Huge Success

They began arriving even before the official opening time of 5:00PM, Monday, the 20th of August. Apparently, 24 photographers have a lot of friends among them, and it seemed like they all showed up for the Photosynthesis opening at ArtSpring, making it one of the most successful ArtSpring openings in recent memory. Some 300 people were estimated to have attended.

They came for the treats, which were terrific, and stayed for the photography, which was even better. The treats, provided by photographers themselves, included everything from fresh fruit skewers to deli platters, fresh vegetables, and a tremendous variety of marvelous desserts.

The photography was universally applauded as the best and most diverse ever shown at a Photosynthesis event. A few prints sold on the spot.

The show – and the sales – continue. Photosynthesis is open daily from 10-5 until Sunday, 9 September. Don’t miss it.
