“Colours of Autumn” is the theme of my new photography display at The Art Gallery Osoyoos Christmas Artisan Market. The market features the work of about 25 local artists and artisans and it runs until December 20, 2021.

The gallery is located at 8713 Main Street, Osoyoos, BC — just up the street from town hall — next to the quail sculpture.

The gallery is now on non-summer hours and is open from noon to 4 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday. On Saturdays when the Market on Main is open at the Legion Hall — November 13, December 4 and December 11 — the Christmas Artisan Market is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition, the market will be open on Sunday, December 19 and Monday, December 20 for those wanting to do some last-chance viewing and shopping. Covid precautions are in effect.

Colours of Autumn

“Colours of Autumn” is my own show within the Christmas Artisan Market. Due to limited wall space, only a few of these photographs will be shown on the wall framed. Most of the rest should be available at the gallery either as prints or photo greeting cards. Any sales must be handled by The Art Gallery Osoyoos during the show.

These photos were mostly taken this autumn in the Osoyoos and Similkameen areas. There are, however, two photos taken around Hope, B.C. when I was there in late October.

Those familiar with my landscape photography know that it is often about changing seasons, weather and light.

Some of my other popular photos are also available as matted prints or cards, and some may be shown on the wall at times during the market.

Aspens transition from green to yellow in early October around a waterhole where cattle graze. Afternoon sunlight highlights the blend of grasslands and coniferous trees — some of which have burned in past wildfires. (304) (Richard McGuire Photo)

Cumulus clouds start to darken as they drift high over the South Okanangan Grassland. Patches of yellow aspens grow in the gullies and add a touch of colour to the dry sagebrush. (305) (Richard McGuire Photo)
