words+pictures, originally uploaded by Michael Mitchener.

A while back, I submitted an Art Exhibits application to the Toronto Public Library and was accepted to display photographs at the Leaside Branch for the month of September.

I've always been a library freak. As a kid, it was a magical place to spend time and throughout my adult life I've always held and used a library card. These days, I try to get down to the local Beaches branch once a week to borrow books, CDs, DVDs and/or magazines.

In case you didn't know, the Toronto Public Library is the largest public library system in North America with over 11,000,000 items in its collection. I feel fortunate to have access to this well managed system and I'm pleased to be exhibiting at the Leaside Branch.

All images in the exhibit are available for sale as displayed which includes a professionally printed 11" x 14" matte-finished, signed photograph with white mat in a 16" x 20" black gallery frame for $120. Please visit my GALLERY COLLECTION for a complete selection of photographs available and contact me if you would like to purchase a print. I'm happy to provide pricing for additional sizes or formats as well.

Join me between the stacks from September 4th to the 30th for words+pictures, a collection of never before exhibited images and a few previously exhibited favourites. The library will provide the words and I'll provide the pictures.


  1. Yay you! And I'm gone the entire month of September. It'd be lovely if you just kept on having exhibitions so I could catch one eventually ;)

  2. That works for me Erin :) Thanks for the comment.

  3. loved the library. grew up steps away from Yorkwoods library in Jane and Finch [Downsview] - I used to max out the 12 book limit weekly, i remember when i outgrew the 'children's' section and moving into the 'teen' section. Those were the days...
