North Mundham 19

The 19th North Mundham Exhibition was an outstanding success and will be remembered as such by all who took part and visited it. Taking part is not exclusive to those with panels but to everyone. If you moved screens, served in the kitchen, sold tombola tickets or were on the meet and greet table, thank you. The credit has been earned and is applicable to all.

Now let us put the same effort into the the New and Aspiring Photographers Exhibition in Tangmere Village Centre on 28th and 29th March. To the Advanced workers at North Mundham I say “They supported you, now it is your turn to play the supporting role.”

This is a set of reminders for the North Mundham Exhibtion being held on 18th and 19th January.

Exhibition evening meal – Margret Preece is taking bookings for this so please get your names down on her list. The meal is a bargain with at least three courses plus wine and coffee at only £13.

Transport of screens and equipment –These will be collected from Tangmere and Ann McDonald on Friday 17th January with all helpers meeting at Tangmere at 2.45 to 3.00 on that date for loading up in the usual manner.  We have use of the North Mundham village hall from 4pm.  Members who  are not involved in the loading and setup of the screens but who are exhibiting work are asked to come to North Mundham after 6pm on the Friday to hang their prints

PDIs – Peter Rocchiccoili will be dealing with these.

Print hanging fees – Will all print exhibitors make sure their hanging fees have been sent to David Harris as my earlier email reminder.

Friday evening timings January 17th – Arrival of equipment at 4pm. Screens etc erected in the New Hall by say 5.30pm and in temporary position in main hall by 6 pm. Those of you exhibiting prints but not involved in the general transportation and installation of screens, please arrive after 6pm. Obviously the entire exhibition has to be in place on the Friday evening ready for opening to the public on Saturday so we will need several helpers on Friday evening after 9pm to move screens to their final location in the main hall after the usual table tennis bookings have finished. Needless to say refreshment will be available throughout the evening to give additional fortification!

Other matters – Don’t forget we will have a sales table for used photographic equipment, books, etc. Please also bring any prizes for the Tombola table.

Chichester Photographers Exhibit in Chartres

An exhibition of photographs of Chichester being held in Chartres from November 2019  to February 2020

Last year I was asked by EPA Chartres International to organise a photography exhibition illustrating Chichester to the people of Chartres. EPA Chartres International is the umbrella organisation that looks after all of Chartres’ international friendships and city twinnings. The exhibition would follow on those that have already taken place for Chartres’ other twinned cities – Sakurai (Japan), Speyer and Ravenna.

What was really interesting about this request was that it was not for a typical photo exhibition.  Rather it would be a genuinely public exhibition taking place in the open air along one of Chartres’ main avenues – the Boulevard Chasles. This boulevard runs from the Place des Epards to the Place St Michel past the Theatre de Chartres, and at present is showing an exhibition about Chartres and UNESCO. The viewers wouldn’t have to visit any building – they could see the photographs as they went about their normal daily life. Furthermore, the brief was that they would like to avoid the well-known portrayals of Chichester beauty spots.

I decided that it would be a better exhibition if it was not limited to one person’s viewpoint. I concluded that the 20 photographs required would be a far better collection if they reflected different viewpoints and styles. What also couldn’t be ignored was the clear need for a high technical standard. These photographs were going to be blown up to over a meter square!  Richard Crossley and Richard Ryder, both Chichester residents, joined me to set about the task.

 Over the year, each of us produced 20 or more pictures that we felt had something to say about Chichester, its people and its environment. A number of sessions of positive criticisms of each other’s work resulted in each of us submitting half a dozen photographs to EPA Chartres. These were accepted and the exhibition opened on Saturday 9th November.  The exhibition will remain open until February 2020.

North Mundham Advanced Workers Exhibition 18th and 19th January 2020


1/ We need prizes for the Tombola to be held on both days of the exhibition. Any unwanted Christmas gifts, bottles of wine or spirits, chocolates etc would be very welcome. Please contact Lyn Owen or Carmel Lynch.
2/. There will be the usual Sales table for photographic equipment and associated items such as books etc. Please bring along any items no longer required. Should there be any queries regarding sales, please get in touch with myself. The amount of money raised for the club from this and the Tombola can amount to a surprising amount. 
3/ There will be the usual Saturday evening dinner at the end of the exhibition’s first day. This is open to ALL club members and helpers. The cost of this will be £13 for a three or four course meal including wine, Margret Preece will be taking bookings for this at club meetings in the new year prior to the exhibition. However it would be appreciated if those of you hoping to come to the dinner could let either Margret or myself know in advance by email etc to give us an idea of demand.
4/ Finally for those of you exhibiting at the exhibition, please send your bios to Stephen Marsh as soon as possible and certainly before Christmas.
Should there be any other queries regarding the exhibition, please contact me on iainmcgowanphoto@gmail.com or 01243 266094
