The 2013 Oakville Camera Club Member Exhibit




What you see below is the end result of a very busy fall. I'm president of the Oakville Camera Club and every year we hold an annual photography competition open to the public called Capture Oakville which as been going on for the past seven years. This year the club put the event on hiatus, first off Capture Oakville was in dire need of a re-fresh and secondly we wanted to try Queen Elizabeth Park Community Cultural Centre's main gallery with an internal exhibit with the theme My World in Transition. It was a pretty wide open topic to facilitate a large number of entries from club members.

Now, curating, framing, hanging 80 prints and putting on a smaller event that drew my guess about 150 people on opening night is no easy feat, the Capture Oakville Director stepped down due to professional commitments and thankfully the committee responsible stepped up. I can't thank Kieley Hickey, Walter Sawka Wojtek Ziobicki enough for curating and hanging the exhibit, I know the work involved because I helped out with the hanging and it took a good six hours.

The 2013 Oakville Camera Club member exhibit will be on display until mid January 2014 at  QEPCCC at 2303 Bridge Road in the main gallery until it moves to the corridors at the end of the month.
