Past Events

Sunrise at the ‘ole Ranche, Saturday, March 18, 7:00 – 10:00am

  • Location: Historic Cochrane Ranche Site
  • League Hosts: Darwin Wiggett & Samantha Chrysanthou
  • Theme: them nooks & crannies!
  • Description: Darwin and Sam love exploring their local parks. A park that has fascinated them over the years is just in their backyard – the site of the old Cochrane Ranch. Although many changes have come to Darwin and Sam’s community over the years, there is still a bit of wildness tucked away in the little valley that shelters Big Hill Springs creek’s journey to the beautiful Bow River. Explore the ledges and hollows of this little park for the morning, then join the group at a local coffee house to talk shop, meet League members and learn more about the production of League.

To Print or not to Print… Sunday, March 19, 2:00 – 6:00pm

  • Location: Deja Brew in Cochrane/Darwin & Sam’s house
  • League Hosts: Darwin Wiggett and Samantha Chrysanthou
  • Theme: Should the print just die already?
  • Description: We kick off this spirited event with a field trip to Departed, a print exhibit by photographer Catherine Byram. After we drink in the luscious hues and dreamy abstracts of Catherine’s ICM (intentional camera movement) prints, it’s time to get serious. Head to Darwin and Sam’s house for refreshments and a lively discussion on whether photographers should print their work – or not?

Art in the Park, Saturday, March 25, 7:30 – 10:00am

  • Location: Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park
  • League Hosts: Darwin Wiggett and Samantha Chrysanthou
  • Theme: ghosts of the land
  • Description: Alberta’s newest park, Glenbow Ranch is a historian’s dream and a photographer’s heaven! Evidence dating back 4000 years of native peoples using the area suggest the importance of the rolling slopes for bison hunting. A colourful past that includes a failed ranching endeavour and once-thriving town sustained by a local sandstone quarry suggest there are plenty of ghosts hanging around these beautiful, windswept hills! We’re going to brave the spring weather in hopes of catching an echo of that past in our landscape images…

Spring at the Springs, Sunday, March 26, 3:00 – 9:00pm

  • Location: Big Hill Springs Provincial Park /Darwin & Sam’s house
  • League Hosts: Darwin Wiggett and Samantha Chrysanthou
  • Theme: shore/lines
  • Description: Big Hill Springs is a popular park loved by a variety of visitors. From deep in a hillside, a warm spring gurgles to the surface, trickling down over ancient rock, feeding green water plants and drinking mammals all winter long. As Canada celebrates its sesquicentennial this summer, let’s visit a nearby fave natural area and photograph our personal encounters with it. Warm up with pizza back at Darwin and Sam’s house as you prep the day’s take for an in-house image critique up on the big screen!
