Awards Night – 16 August 7pm
(NB: This is the third Thursday of August – NO club meeting on 2nd Thursday, August 9th)
This year, we are holding our Awards Night at the Millennium Gallery on Seymour Street. Commencing 7pm with the AGM followed by wine/fruit juice and platters of food and the opportunity to view the latest exhibition which is New Perspectives on Landscape – A group exhibition of five recent Masters of Fine Arts graduates from the Dunedin School of Art, Fiona Van Oyen, Sue Pearce, Robyn Bardas, Miranda Joseph, and Hannah Joynt. Capturing landscapes and the natural world has a long tradition of inspiring artists throughout art history and the five artists in this exhibition continue to be drawn to this subject and provide us with a fresh approach about the places we inhabit.
Our speaker for the evening is Bryce McQuillan, an esteemed macro/wildlife photographer from Rotorua whom the Club were able to tempt to Marlborough thanks to your committee.
Our annual awards presentation and Shot of the Year results will follow the speaker. Check out Bryce on website https://www.brycephotography.co.nz/
There will be a door charge of $5 per person to help towards the costs of the evening plus there will be a great raffle made up with contributions from the local businesses and our own members. We could always do with a few more items to add to the basket, so if you have any items you could contribute to the raffle please let me know. This will be a very special Club event so do be there to enjoy and celebrate.
Spirit of the Wairau Exhibition
Tuesday, 31 July 2018 7:00 pm
Spirit of Wairau - plenty of scope here to capture the spirit of the river, be it a sunrise, sunset landscape, perhaps a fisherman on the river, impressive boulders etc, anything that evokes a response from the viewer. The plan is to select some of the best images and display them (possibly for sale) at a venue yet to be decided such as a cafe/winery/gallery. This will bring the importance of the river to Marlborough, to the public and awareness of the Club, with the expectation of new member enquiries.
Submissions to "Spirit of the Wairau" Exhibition: ideally each person will enter 4 digital images, although less than 4 is OK. The digitals should be the usual 1620x1080 sizing. From these digitals, a Club selection panel will choose those images that best portray the Wairau. Therefore, please retain your original digital images which should be of sufficient size to enable a print to be made for exhibition to the public sometime in August/September as stated above. The Committee hopes to acquire some funds to offset the cost of printing. Entries close on 31 July.
This event is not on our set subject calendar but entrants could collect images over the summer, autumn/winter and complete their submission in time for viewing at the Club hopefully in September or October.
In making your images there are several possibilities: 4 diverse images; 4 images which are a set, ie have some feature or features that link them together; 2 images taken in Spring and 2 images of the same subject taken in Autumn, etc etc. The selectors will also consider images in a "set" individually when the final 10 for display are selected.
It will be an achievement to have one of your images selected for the Exhibition. It is also planned to select the best group of 4 digital imagaes submitted by one individual.
