Event Description

With " Red Boot’s Exploring the Farm "  the objective is to engage the viewer (child or adult) with the image and to draw them into the detail, into the mood or into the message.  It is meant to encourage a conversation between the viewer and the image.  It wants to peak the Curiosity, the Imagination and the Excitement.   Red Boots offers a change in perspective from passive viewer to a more active participant – and hopefully it encourages Reflection… and maybe a Smile….


The profits from the sales of “ Exploring the Farm ”  – will be donated to local agricultural organizations to support their volunteer efforts in Education and Awareness. 


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.
