We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to our many sponsors who have made the 35th Annual Photographic Exhibition a huge success. Without your continued support this would not be possible.
Also a big thank you to the members of our finance committee and others for their trojan work in sourcing the sponsorship. It is well worth the effort and we invite you all to visit us during the Arts Festival to view the wonderful exhibition of photography.
A large crowd of members and invited guests attended the launch of our 35th Annual Photographic Exhibition in MacDonagh Junction last night at 7pm. With about 50 members exhibiting it is one of the largest displays yet.
The information form that’s required for your display during our Annual Photographic Exhibition can be downloaded from the website. Go to MEMBERS AREA then DOWNLOADS and it’s the first item on this list.
I would like to wish the very best to all members who are exhibiting in our exhibition from the 10th to the 19th August .As you all know a lot of work has gone into the setting up of our exhibition by the exhibition committee, for it to continue to run smoothly over the next number of weeks members are requested to contribute. i.e.
- Helping to clean up the venue and assembling the display boards on Tuesday evening the 7th August at 7 o’clock (we need at good number of members to help)
- Posters will be available at the clean-up in MacDonagh Junction for anyone who wishes to distribute them.
- The venue will be open from 10am to 9pm on Thursday 9th for setting up the exhibition. The NEW panel boards will require Velcro only (Hook and Loop Fasteners), at back of image and information document. The panels have the soft side – please remember to put the hard part of the Velcro on the back of your mounts.
- Do not use the very heavy Velcro as this could damage the surface of the panels when taking down your images
For the venue to remain open we need all the Exhibitors that have not included their name in the time table to do so.
The official opening of our exhibition takes place in MacDonagh Junction on Friday, 10th August at 7pm. The opening will be performed by Cllr.Eamon Aylward, Cathaoirleach of Kilkenny County Council.
Photographer of the Year Awards will also be presented on the night.
Please contact the exhibition co-organiser Andy on 087 2331548 to add you name to the timetable.
