Event Description



Margaret C. Benmore


All around the world you will find STREET ART... it is on walls, stairs, buses, cars and trains...

It is in shop windows, on huge billboards or murals  


  Street Art provides a dynamic living Art Gallery that exists in our daily lives and routine trips...  


It is wild, chaotic and generally unorganized... it is serendipity, coincidence and often happenstance...  sometimes it just tickles your funny bone...


   It can also be very controlled, manipulated and managed... hard edged and striking...


      It is glimpse of our times, troubles and mood...


Some STREET ART has a message...  

some is raw with frustration or anger...

some express joy, love and yearnings

for peace and goodwill...

some is plain crass commercialism at its finest...


The variety of STREET ART is endless...

Opportunities to observe Art in the streets  are all around you...


Please enjoy... Cheers... MCB

This group will infuse some new energy and direction into the Club. Feedback from club members indicates that people would like more interactive educational activities (workshops, classes, small field trips etc.) and maybe a schedule of educational opportunities ahead of time so that people can plan to attend.

The Victoria Camera Club has an external speaker every month and are willing to share their list of speakers so we can participate, at a cost of $5 a person. The club has funds to cover this at the moment. This would require using the  Zoom format (which has worked so well during this Pandemic).

Club meetings will resume in October, giving this new group time to work out their ideas for new directions.

Some people are cautious about in person meetings (because of health issues) and others are ready and able to jump back in. Maybe in person meetings and Zoom meetings can co-exist. Something to talk about.

Maureen has offered to look into a monthly newsletter with, possibly, more coverage than the website offers such as emails, using facebook etc.

Avril would like to see an improved use of the website: more posts, more comments, more helpful critiquing. We might need a refresher course to remind us how to give constructive feedback.

Doug has a show about Covid in September at the library -  in the Community Program Room. He will give a talk on September 7th at Noon. This will be previously unseen material, not the triptychs we have seen on the website.

Photosynthesis has a virtual show coming up, starting on August 31st. Some club members also belong to this photography group.

There is no theme yet for the photography challenge in October but when that is decided it will be communicated to everyone.
