BRIEFS: Kamloops photographer's work on display
A Kamloops photographer’s work is on display for the next three weeks at the Wilson House Gallery.
Kelly Pape’s show, titled Inside the Imagination of Kelly Pape: Starting with a Photograph, began on Feb. 13 and runs through March 14.
Pape’s work has appeared in magazines and calendars. She has also done commercial work.
She describes her focus as “pushing the limits of photography.”

Symphony on campus
The Kamloops Symphony’s Daily New Chamber Series continues this weekend with a performance on the campus of Thompson Rivers University.
Violinists Cvetozar Vutev and Annette Dominik, as well as cellist Martin Kratky and violist Veronique Saucier, will play a show titled Light and Darkness at TRU’s Alumni Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23.
The chamber events are intended to give audiences a chance to take in music in a much more intimate atmosphere than would be provided at a typical symphony performance.
Tickets are available at the Kamloops Live Box Office, 250-374-5483, or at the door.

Stars in your kid’s eyes?
Does your kid have what it takes to be the next big thing?
New York talent scout Peter Sklar will be in the Tournament Capital next month presenting a workshop and looking to meet potential young actors.
Sklar’s list of former clients includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon and Mischa Barton.
The workshop, titled Getting Started in the Arts, is for aspiring teen dancers, singers and actors and their parents.
Sklar said a career in the arts is dependent on two things — self-image and health.
“If you don’t feel good mentally and physically, you won’t open up and show us who you really are,” he said.
“When that happens — no matter how good you are, how pretty or who you know — we’ve already lost interest.”
Getting Started in the Arts is slated to be held at The Academy of Dance, 910 Camosun Cresc., at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 23.
It is open to teenagers, young adults, older children and parents. No one under seven will be admitted, and no one under 18 will be admitted without a parent or legal guardian.
There is no cost to attend, but reservations are required by calling 250-314-9974.
