Exhibition 2015

Every year for the whole of February Kidderminster Library  allow us the use of their splendid gallery to mount our annual exhibition.  The exhibition consists of seventy four framed images from our membership of fifty two members.  This year forty four of the members contributed allowing the club to show a real cross section of work from all skill levels.

The opening night is always a highlight in the club’s calendar and very well attended by members and their partners.  It has become tradition that a trophy is awarded to the authors of the best images in the General and Advanced classes.  We always try to obtain the services of a well known local person to act as judge for the evening and this year Loz Samuels the Arts and Play Development Officer for Wyre Forest Council kindly stepped into the role and seemed to relish the challenge of choosing two out of a diverse selection of images.

This year’s winners were Martin Rowe (General) and Steve Ficken (Advanced)

Of course, the exhibition requires much preparation and planning beforehand and a special mention must go to Maureen Mundon who, for the last two years has made “hanging day” so much easier thanks to her meticulous planning.  Without all the heroes who give their time on preparation days the installation would be far from the pleasurable task that it  always turns out to be.

A special mention also to for Duncan and Elsie who, once again, kept the wine and nibbles going on opening night

It is hoped that the images below give a taste of the occasion.  Here’s to Exhibition 2016 !
