Ask many visitors to Eastern Prince Edward Island what drew them here, and chances are it will be the images of beaches, lighthouses and other iconic scenes captured by Innkeeper Glenn Saunders, guest speaker at the February 15 public meeting of Southern Kings Arts Council, in Montague.
Glenn and his wife Joan operate Country Charm B&B and Forest & Stream Cottages in Murray Harbour. As part of his contribution to fellow tourism operators in the Island East Tourism Group, Glenn has donated hundreds of photographs over the past ten years for use in promotional literature distributed world-wide in print and electronic versions.
In addition, his web site, glennsaundersphotography.com , is a repository of scores of images, each dated, described, and categorized by the artist, as a source for commercial buyers and licensees.
Southern Kings Arts Council is one of seven regional organizations supporting artists with Professional Development grants and working to promote awareness and appreciation of the arts on Prince Edward Island. The public is invited to “meet our artists” at evening meetings held on the third Tuesday of each month, commencing at 7:30 pm in the main floor boardroom of Active Communities, Inc., Main Street, Montague. Admission is free. For more information, contact SKAC President Fran Feher at 583-2888
