February 2022 News

After a somewhat dry start to the year, the weather is now balancing it’s books. Many rainy days of recent have not been conducive to getting out with our cameras, however…….the old adage of “no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing “ holds good.

We began the month with Jim Cunningham judging our entries in the Humanity Cup.  These judges put an inordinate amount of time in preparing for these nights and do it with our grateful thanks in spite of our differences of opinion with our personal entries ! As you read this and wonder just what the judge has picked out of many, many entries, go onto the Club’s comprehensive website, click onto the Competitions link, you may be surprised ! All results from this year ,to date are there, thanks to our dedicated team who deal with such things.

Our first meeting on March 2nd is the judging of our final Competition of this year’s programme the title of which is  ANYTHING GOES ( as previously mentioned in February’s Mag ) . March 9th is a workshop evening  7 Images in 7 days and on March16th  David Bibby presents My Way with Audio Visual.

Now , a date (s) for your diary. Our first exhibition for 2022 takes place from April 9th through May 7th. Do come along and take the weight off your feet and possibly have a drink and a light snack, you will be most welcome. The opening times are on the Arts Centre website. The prints and images on display are submitted by members on an anything you want to show  basis.  Our exhibition in September will display prints and images which have been awarded a place ie. 1st/2cnd /3rd  ..Highly Commended/Commended.

Finally , as we break into spring,  keep those shutters pressed.
