Sixty Days of Fame Exhibits Resume at MacNaught History Centre and Archives

Now that fall has arrived the Sixty Days of Fame exhibits have resumed in the small gallery of the MacNaught History Centre and Archives in Summerside.

To start off the new season is the exhibit Simply Images by Sue Campbell of Summerside. Campbell has produced acetate film images and mounted them on a silver background. The photos are unique and have an ‘almost’ 3d effect.

The idea for her show came out of the current fashion of taking photos on phones and both viewing and storing them on the device rather than having prints made. Campbell wanted to come up with a new concept, something different for people to preserve their images. 

Campbell is a writer, artist and self-taught professional old fool.  She lives and practices her old foolery in Summerside. She has five books in print and is presently working on a book of poetry which will be finished by the end of 2018.  To her credit, she has two novels, a memoir, a comedy and a book of short stories.

Photo is called Blacksmith Shop.


Photography Exhibit Fills the Walls of MacNaught History Centre and Archives Gallery


“Discover the Island, Discover the Artist” exhibit featuring the works of The Red Sands Photo Club is now hanging at the MacNaught History Centre and Archives Gallery in Summerside as part of the ongoing Sixty Days of Fame series.

Red Sands Photo Club was started back in 2010 in Summerside and has built an impressive membership always eager to show their creative works through exhibit. Spokesperson for the club, Mike Gallant, says the show, as indicated in the name, will offer the viewer a wide scope of creative work as each photographer has their own style. As Gallant says, “It is all about creativity and skill.”

The show can be viewed at the MacNaught History Centre and Archives from December 1 through 21, 2018, and from January 3 to 31, 2019, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm. An open house will be held on Thursday, December 6th from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. All are invited. Admission to view the show is free.  MacNaught is located at 75 Spring Street, Summerside.
