Spirit of the Wairau Exhibition
Friday, 13 July 2018 12:00 am
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.
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 in July.
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.
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.
