Exhibition 2016

It seems like it was only a few weeks ago that we were taking down Exhibition 2015 but here we are with this year’s big event – Exhibition 2016.

Here are a few pictures depicting the preparation and opening night.

A great effort by everyone concerned, not only from the selecting, framing and hanging teams but, most importantly, from a membership of  49, 43 members submitted prints and we had a total exhibition of 63 prints plus a rolling slideshow of other images.  Excellent!

This year’s winning images were chosen by the Wyre Forest’s Green Party candidate Natalie McVey.  The successful authors this year were Alan Wakefield who won the General section trophy for “Public Footpath” and Steve (it’s that man again!) Ficken took the Advanced trophy for “My Life Going Down the Drain”.  Congratulations to both.

When you are next in Kidderminster pop into the Library and take a look.  The exhibition is on for the whole of February.

 

Preparation is Everything…
