More info:
The Secret Galerie is pleased to present "Beauty from British Columbia's north, Alaska, Northwest Territories and the Yukon", a collection of photographs by the professional photographers "Ms. V.Ross Johnson & Mr. Shahn Torontow".
After becoming ill, Ross requested that Shahn build a 4x4 RV capable of taking them to remote areas. Ross had a dream "to be able to go to sleep and wake up as often as possible with a view." Traveling while suffering the effects of the Lyme and Babesia has been a challenge and an escape. For more information on the RV go to:  www.Steelwheels4x4.com. This show provides a collection of what they have seen on their latest trip, from the furthest points in British Columbia's north, Alaska, Northwest Territories and the Yukon-beauty you may never have the opportunity to experience in person.
Secret Galerie owner, Susanne Ketelaar is well on her way to interpreting her own sense of purpose into everyday reality.  Her shop, Honestly Teas sells a delicious array of organic, fair trade teas, now specializing in very high quality Indian teas.  Expanding on that vision, Susanne has since created the Secret Galerie, a venue for the community to share in the richness and meaning-making that art can bring to our lives.
Mr. Shahn Torontow was born in Ottawa Ontario in 1961. Completed school there as a welding major in 1978. Worked as a locksmith and residential renovation specialist from 1980 until leaving Ottawa in 1991, relocating to Victoria, British Columbia. Worked as a residential renovation specialist and builder from 1991-1998. In 1998 became a full time Home-care-giver to wife, Ross, who has Lyme disease and Babesia.  Took up photography in 2001. Ross and Shahn work as a team, taking photographs during travels.
Ms. V.Ross Johnson, born in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 1961. Graduated from Florida Tech as a pilot and flew twin engine aircraft. Ross is a certified 737 flight engineer, later in life she became a Certified Public Accountant. Travelled extensively and photographed wildlife in Antarctica, the Northwest Territories and Africa. Ross was looking to get her float plane certification when she became ill in 1998.
Opening November 8, 5-8p.m. at the Secret Galerie - #108 - 561 Johnson Street (the Paperbox Arcade). Show runs until January 2008.  For more info call Susanne at 381-9566.
