The PEI Photo Club will host their 37th annual print exhibition at the Gallery @ The Guild in Charlottetown from June 12 to 23. The public is invited to attend the grand opening on June 12 at 7 pm.
There’s something new about the exhibition this year. The images won’t be grouped according to categories such as landscapes, people, and nature as they have had been in years past. Rather, exhibition spaces will be dedicated to the photographers who will be showcasing their work. The theme of the 2019 show is “Through My Mind’s Eye,” and club members have been encouraged to submit small collections of related images.
“The annual photo show is evolving,” says club president, Paul Vreeland. “Last year’s show was a first in that it wasn’t a competition with judges and prizes. We wanted it to reflect who we are as a community of photographers. This year, we hope that each member’s collection will say something about the photographer and give more credit to him or her, rather than to a singular, prize-winning photo. The show also encourages us to think in terms of working on creative projects.”
Everyone is invited to see the show during gallery hours which are Monday to Saturday from 12 to 5 and one hour before show times. The PEI Photo Club is grateful to all of the volunteers who make the show possible.
