The Scream of the Forest, by Robin Rowland Photography, showing in the Upstairs Gallery at the Kitimat Museum & Archives from January 10 to February 29, 2020.
The forest is screaming, a symbol of environmental catastrophe.
A few years ago, Robin Rowland noticed a knot on an old stump that bore a remarkable resemblance to Edward Munch’s famous paintings collectively known as “The Scream.”
Since then he has been photographing the old knot in all four seasons, winter, spring, summer and fall and in all weather conditions, rain, snow, mist, and summer sun.
Rowland states, “As the world hurtles toward climate catastrophe, species extinction and destruction of biodiversity, the trees and plants have no voice in the polarized political debates—but make no mistake the forest IS screaming.”
This exhibition will continue until February 29th, 2020

‘Local Lens, an exhibition of Northwest Photographers’ will show in the Upstairs Gallery of the Kitimat Museum from August 9th to September 21st, 2019.
‘Local Lens’ invites the public to explore local photography by northern photographers. With no theme, Photographers were encouraged to share through their local lenses what they see in their local lives. Home, town activities and street views, family, friends, wildlife, and the outdoors are only a few examples. This exhibition encompasses works that range in skill levels – from amateur to professional – and techniques that emphasize the individuality of what “local” means to each photographer.
The opening reception will be happening Friday, August 9, 2019, at 7:30 p.m. in the Upstairs Gallery of the Kitimat Museum & Archives. Refreshments will be served.
