SPARK Photo Festival of 2018 marks the first year to be celebrated in the City of Kawartha Lakes and will run from April 1-30, 2018. Photographic exhibits take place at public galleries and in places you least expect.

This is Dianne Lister’s 5th year exhibiting in SPARK Photo Festival.

Dianne Lister has been experimenting with photography and mixed media since 1991. `The Travelling Blue Dress` exhibit uses the technique of intervention — in this series, placing a piece of clothing in unpopulated landscapes, inviting the viewer to complete the story. The same image can evoke different feelings – one person sees freedom, another sees loneliness, one feels wistful, while another viewer may anticipate pleasure. The audience will be encouraged to write down stories and create the narrative.

Kawartha Gallery had a wonderful evening with Dianne Lister’s artist talk & reception with 35 guests participating in the project, writing stories and poems about particular images, reflecting and asking good questions.
