Happy New Year, Everyone.
Our first meeting of the year, Tuesday, January 7th, is fast approaching. The program will be shared by five of our own members. They will be presenting a myriad of techniques that could, perhaps, add a new element of creativity and fun to your photography and images.
This program is designed to stir our creativity in preparation for our next Print competition which will be showcased on Tuesday, Feb. 4th. The categories will be Abstract, Altered Reality, and Creative: and yes, you can enter all three.
 

Tuesday, January 21st will further extend the notion of “creativity”. We will have a presentation from our own Lillian Sly; The Art of Film and Vintage Cameras. 

We also welcome Mill Bay photographer, Rick Lawrence who specializes in Abstracts.

about rick.jpg

Rick explores the relationships between line, shape and colour and aims to pare down images that the camera has captured into their fundamental or essential elements. Much of his work focuses on urban abstracts and minimalist images, including an emphasis on objects such as
doors, windows and stairs, which he sees as gateways to memory and portals to the unconscious. Consequently, many images convey emotional and symbolic qualities that he is drawn to. More recently he has also been experimenting with images related to the natural environment, influenced by a recent move from the city to a rural setting. In this work, he looks for inspiration and hidden beauty in the forms and colours of the natural world around him: forest, ocean, and sky.
For more of Rick’s work, look at his website. ricklawrence.art


This is just a friendly reminder about February 11, 6pm at the museum for the information/registration session for this years Heritage Art Show. I hope you can all make it, lots of new subject choices this year and some familiar classics too.
