Messing With The Masters
On behalf of the Lake Grace Artists Group, I would like to invite the camera club to participate in our September/October Exhibition, Messing With The Masters. The idea behind the exhibition is you take a Master who has influenced your art. You can either recreate one of their artworks in your style or you can create an original artwork in their style. Your piece must be accompanied by an A4 picture of the Artwork you re-styled or one of the Artist’s work, to show the influence.
The medium and size is open to you to decide. As long as we can get it through the doors at the Artspace, size isn’t an issue.

NEPG VISIT:  October 16/17th 2021.

Do you know of any activities that may be happening on that date or suggestions of venue, sights etc to visit for photography opportunities keeping in mind meals etc.

Albany Interclub Competition is made up with the WAGIN CAMERA CLUB, BUSSELTON CAMERA CLUB,          PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP OF BUNBURY & ESPERANCE PHOTO CLUB                         

Hello everyone,

Thank you all again for entering the Interclub which produced some interesting images.

I have enclosed the sheet from the judge with his comments and the scores.

The winning club with the most points overall was Bunbury with 254 points.

Congratulations Bunbury members.

You will see from the judge’s comments that there has been quite a few disqualifications due to the fact that the ‘face’ was showing in quite a few images. Please read his comments fully, as he states that although they have been disqualified, quite a few would do well in other comps.
