4340 Tokay Boulevard, Madison, WI
Based on the success of our print display meeting earlier in the year, I am excited to announce an opportunity for this group to exhibit some of our work in public!
Our group's images will be on display in the Sequoya Library during the months of January & February 2017.
If you'd like to participate in this show, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY. We've never done anything like this before, and I want to avoid confusion and help this process run smoothly.
-- REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATION:
1. You must be an active member of the group. This means you must have attended at least six (6) meetups between Jan 1 and Aug 31, 2016.
2. There will be an $8.00 fee to enter the show. This fee is non-refundable. Payment can be made via PayPal to [masked] (preferred) or to Sharkey in person. If payment is not received by Thursday, September 22nd, you will not be able to participate.
3. You must meet all deadlines associated with the show, and participate in show-related meetups. We will have deadlines for sign-up, payment, image selection, printing, and framing. We will also hold at least one group critique and a workshop for matting and framing. Dates and details will be coming very soon.
-- PHOTOGRAPHIC & IMAGE INFORMATION:
1. The theme for this show is "The Allure of the Ordinary." This may be interpreted however you wish, but images must reflect the theme.
2. Images may be color or black & white, but must have been taken in 2016.
3. UPDATE: Printed images may be vertical, horizontal or square. Final image size will depend on frame size and mat opening.
4. UPDATE: Frame size restriction has been removed. Frames should be black, size and style is up to you.
5. There is no requirement as to the type of camera used to capture the image. Most phones and point & shoot cameras are definitely capable of producing a quality print at this size.
6. Final images must be printed at a professional print lab, either online or in Madison. No drugstore or department store prints.
7. Inexpensive pre-made frames are ok, but be sure to scrutinize them for nicks and scratches and quality before purchasing. The quality of the frame reflects the quality of your work.
8. This exhibit will be self-juried, which means each photographer may select your own image to display. However, we will hold at least one critique group, the purpose of which is to help you select your strongest image. (You should want nothing but your best work to be on display for a show.)
9. Images should be strong enough to stand on their own for the viewer without a lot of explanation.
10. The show is limited by the space available at the library. As of right now, I am estimating space for 30 images. Each photographer may submit one image. If we have fewer than 30 people participating, we will decide within the group if any additional images will be displayed.

Thanks everyone, this should be fun!
Getting back into photography. Want to become better at "reading" and "creating" light.
I love photography, golf & wine...not necessarily in that order!
I love seeing the world through a camera lens.
Have been taking photos since using 126 film and flash cubes. Can now hold my camera steady.
