Club Night Summary #119

But is it Art?

After four weeks back in the Community centre hall, we returned to Zoom for last week’s presentation. Keith Snell was our guest speaker, broadcasting from his home in the Lake District. His talk had the Intriguing title of ‘But is it art’ sharing with us his take on ‘representational’ and ‘Impressionistic’ photography and art. A very Interesting and Inspiring presentation, with Keith showing many fine examples of his own work. In particular his passion for abstract and ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) photography.

We are back in the hall this week where we will be creating another first for the club by showing ‘live’ view on our big screen of ‘The park street landscape cup’ in which we will be competing to try and win the competition. It will be great to meet together to cheer on our entries and compare our work with other clubs during the evening.

The following week we have another landmark where after nearly two years, we will be holding our first print competition back in the hall. It’s an ‘open’ competition with up to three entries per person. It will be brilliant to have physical prints on show back in the hall for the judge to critique. Personally, I think to produce a print for competition is a very satisfying experience and although a bit more effort, it is overall a rewarding achievement.

Look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday
