This Tuesday marks Gastown’s second year participating in the Capture Photography Festival.
From April 3 to 30, Torrie Groening’s intriguing photographic collage work; Alley View Bouquet, A Delivery for Mrs. Deighton will be displayed in the alley at 321 Water Street.
The images in this installation are adapted from Groening’s still life montage entitled Destiny Bouquet, in which a collection of deco-era vessels are photographed and layered to evoke limitless collecting–the vases are host to a constructed bouquet of drawn and etched flowers and objects.
For Alley View Bouquet, A Delivery for Mrs. Deighton, Groening took her inspiration from the women of Gastown’s history. Mrs. Deighton was Qwa-halia (Madeline) Deighton, a Squamish woman who married the infamous John “Gassy Jack” Deighton.

As lead singer of the legendary R&B group The Ohio Players, Dutch toured for years with highlights such as Soul Train and The Tonight Show. He co-wrote their material, and even performed the Ohio Player version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow requested at Judy Garland’s funeral.
After leaving The Players, Dutch worked with the likes of Tommy Motolla, Daryl Hall, John Oates, Melba Moore, Kid Creole & the Coconuts, and Curtis Mayfield before relocating to Canada. His 5 octave vocal range and undeniable stage presence makes for a classic R&B/Soul spectacle. His show is a mix of Motown classics and well-known originals, none of which are to be missed.
