Winnipeg, Manitoba, March 18, 2014 – Gurevich Fine Art is excited to announce it has been selected to host the JUNO Photography Exhibition in collaboration with the 2014 JUNO Awards. The exhibit, which will feature classic JUNO photos and exclusive works taken by Canada’s foremost rock and roll photographers, will have an opening reception March 26th at 7:00 pm. The exhibit will be open to the public from March 24th to 30th.

This retrospective photography exhibition showcases the past 40+ years of Canadian music and the JUNO Awards. The exhibition showcases more than 50 stunning photos from the JUNO Awards’ 40th Anniversary book, Music from Far and Wide, as well as exclusive photos taken by Canada’s foremost rock and roll photographers including Barry Roden, Bruce Cole, Grant Martin, Tom Sandler and photographers from iPhoto Inc.

“I have recognized the intersection of music and art all my life,” explains Gurevich Fine Art owner Howard Gurevich. “Since beginning GFA, we have given our space for musical performance in many genres. In those instances, the art and music enhance each other creating a natural fusion of culture.”
