Conclusion of our “In Focus” exhibition

I am writing this as our club photographic exhibition draws to a close. And how good did it look! We received many compliments on the presentation and professionalism. The things that helped get these comments? Consistency of framing and mounting, labels and the very professional looking material that was handed out, not to mention the quality of the images. Many of our visitors had real problems choosing their “peoples choice” image due to the wonderful work submitted by our members.

While the increasing concerns about coronavirus kept the numbers down and meant modifications to our opening night I think the size of the gallery made it a reasonably safe space for visitors- drawn mainly from other camera clubs and the local community. We were also privileged to have Dr Gareth Syvret – associate curator from the MGA open the exhibition.

My thanks in particular to the members who committed to getting images onto the walls- and delivered 74 prints for us to hang! The opening and closing and roster to sit the gallery was staffed by members- thanks again. And in particular to the small group who put this together and those who turned up on the day to assist with the hanging. We have discovered John Noble is very talented in terms of framing and hanging, Ken Barnett is very good at putting wires onto the back of the prints (among other things) and Dave Sumner has a good eye for aligning the images!

And to the “committee”- Jen Fawkes, Rosie Hughes and the very talented Trace O’Rourke (labels) and Anthony Pearsall (marketing material, catalogues etc)- my special thanks. We have learned a lot and perhaps when we recover we could do it all again (in a year or two!!)

A count of the visitor’s votes for the most popular gallery image revealed our winner to be new member Daren Fawkes with “Mother and Child”.
