The Whitby Station Gallery has closed its gallery doors because of the Pandemic lock-down. However, that doesn’t mean that the non-profit public art gallery has forgotten about the Black History Month, in fact last week the Station Gallery opened, albeit virtually, Beyond the Carnival 4 a new photographic exhibition.

“ This photographic exhibition brings together a group of photographers whose mission is to capture and present images that focus on the Pan-Caribbean culture and to create a legacy that highlights the excellent work of Canadian Caribbean photographers,” said gallery curator Olex Wlasenko.

In lieu of the shut-down, Wlasenko has filmed a half-hour walk through the exhibition. This video is available on Facebook at

Beyond the Carnival 4 features the works of seven seasoned professionals who are members of the Canadian Caribbean Photographic Arts Collective (CCPAC) has been active for several years – this is the fourth group showing for CCAP. Photographers taking part in the Whitby show are: Jenny Baboolal, Anthony Berot, Peter Faure, Ian P. Grant, Gilbert Medina, Maq Sealy and Horace Thorne.

The Station Gallery has physically hung the CCPAC in their art gallery.  Depending on the length of Covid shut-down patrons when the gallery is allowed to open. Right now, the best way to see the exhibition is via Wiasenko’s Facebook walk through.
