It’s under six weeks now to the opening of the Annual Exhibition, so a few reminders about key dates.
Thursday 2nd August is the Club Members’ Pre Exhibition meeting, at 7.30pm at Tangmere as usual. The Exhibition Catalogue will be available then (still only £1!), plus posters and flyers for general distribution.
Stewarding, volunteers for stewarding are still needed for various dates throughout the week – watch out for a post from Phil Shaw, the Exhibition Secretary, with slots still needing to be filled.
Friday 10th August is set up day, all Members should attend to set up their own exhibit. There will be plenty of help on hand for those who haven’t done this before – from about 9am please and all done by midday.
That is also the Preview Evening to which all Members, family, friends and invited guests are very welcome. That’s a 7pm for 7.30 start. After the awards there will be our traditional buffet (Sheila Tester will be looking for helpers) and a chance to see the exhibition before it opens to the public the following day. This is a really enjoyable evening, so even if you didn’t submit anything for exhibiting this year, do come along
Saturday 11th to Saturday 18th August (closed Sunday) the Exhibition is open from 10am to 5pm each day, with coffee, tea and cake available. The are over 200 images in print form and some 150 projected images on show. members who wish to have their own greetings cards on sale can do so – with a 15% commission to the Club. Please bring these along on the Friday.
Saturday 18th August is take down day at 5pm. Again ALL Members should be on hand to take away their prints – although do please note that the Selection Committee will set some aside for consideration for external competitions next season.
AND ALSO! Don’t forget the exhibition that follows this is at the Novium Museum where images inspired by the Chichester district will be featured. Images from around the district – new and old – will be required, so watch out for information on submitting those.
