April 12th Print Group

This month’s Print Group on 12th April at 7.30pm in the small hall at Tangmere will concentrate on the upcoming Print Panel Competition and the Annual Exhibition.  Considering how to combine prints into a successful panel and how to put together a good entry for the exhibition, we will look at which mounts to use, which images complement each other best – and how to make a hanging plan, which you will need for the Print Panel Competition and can supply with your exhibition entry.

Bring along work you are thinking about for these events, even if it is  work in progress. ALL members who submit work for the Annual Exhibition will have at least one image shown – a thought through submission can be even more successful.  Come and find out how.

Print Group 9th February

Print Group tomorrow provides an opportunity to bring along work in progress to share and discuss with other group members.  Perhaps you’re looking ahead to the Spring Exhibition in April or the forthcoming print competitions in March – or even starting to think about the Annual Exhibition?  You’re also welcome to bring along fully worked up images you would just like to share, or – especially if you haven’t tried the Print Group yet – just come along to see what it’s about.  All welcome, 7.30pm in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre.

Print Group 12th January

The first Print Group meeting of 2016 is on Tuesday 12th January – and with the deadline for the next Beginners and Intermediate Print Competition on Thursday, perfect timing to bring along prints you are thinking about entering.  As always, work in progress for discussion, fully developed work for sharing or prints from the ‘archive’ all very welcome.  Or just come along to see what goes on!

7.30pm in the small hall at Tangmere – £3 for members and £4 for visitors.

 

Print Group Tuesday 8th December

We had a lively Print Group meeting this week, with a particular look at different papers and the different effects they gave to the same original image.

Dave Abbott brought along a stack of images by the late Charlie Sayers, some dating from the 1930s .  Among these wonderful action shots and portraits was this handsome young fellow, taken in the mid-70s.  No prizes for recognizing Club stalwart Charlie Roe!

We’ll meet again on the 12th January at 7.30 as usual in the small hall.  That’s conveniently a week before the next Beginner and Intermediate Print Competition deadline, so do bring along work you’re thinking about entering.Charlie Roe portrait

Print Group Tuesday 8th December

First Tuesday in the month as always is Print Group.  We’ll be looking at different papers and the difference they make to images, some images from the archives, and with the 17th December deadline for the Advanced Print Competition looming, no doubt some work being considered for that.  Bring your prints for discussion, whether they are finished or in progress or just come along to see what the group is about.

7.30pm  in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre – all Club Members and visitors welcome!

Print Group Tuesday 10th November

Members enjoyed Tuesday’s Print Group which looked particularly at the idea of ‘competition images’ and the sort of criteria judges look for.  With the deadline for submitting the first print competition entries for Beginner and Intermediate workers only two weeks away (Thursday 26th November), newer members found this especially useful.

Charlie Roe brought along some of the wonderful images by Charlie Simcox, including photographs of Chichester in the 1950s and a superb portrait dating back to 1942, which we greatly enjoyed seeing.

Next month we will be looking at the different types of print papers and how they can affect the look of the image, as well as, as always, images in every state of development that members would welcome comments and advice on.  And, it being the last meeting before Christmas, there will of course be mince pies!

Print Group – Tuesday 10th November

It’s Print Group on Tuesday 10th November  and with the first Beginners and Intermediate Print Competition coming up soon, a good opportunity to bring along prints you are considering entering.

Everyone is welcome, and all kinds of images – whether that first thoughts on new work, pieces in development or final prints you would like to show and discuss with others.

Work doesn’t have to be mounted or full size, but attached to card helps keep prints upright for viewing.  If you’d like to just come along to see what the group does you will also be very welcome.  7.30pm in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre.

 

Print Group 13th October

An enjoyable Print Group last night – with some brave new members who shared their images with us for helpful comments,.  Pete Bamforth brought along his latest print book, a record of his recent visits to Birmingham.  Pete’s images are always stunning, and this latest superb A3 publication from Aperture took advantage of the 50% reduction Aperture offers Club members and friends in the Annual Exhibition catalogue.  You’ll have to be quick to use the voucher code – it expires at the end of the month.

Print Group meets again on 10th November – do join us!

Print Group – 13th October

The Print Group meets again on Tuesday 13th October in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre at 7.30pm  All are welcome – including non-members.  Bring along your work in progress, new work, old work, images you’re pleased with and those you don’t think are quite right for friendly and constructive group comment. No need to mount pictures or produce full size, but stuck to card just to give some support is useful.  If you’d like to just sit in and watch what happens at these meetings you’ll also be very welcome.
