Country Grocer Cafe

Our first show is up at Country Grocer's Roasting cafe. Tell your friends to check out six of our members' work. Country Grocer will get the Driftwood to do a feature story.

Rachel and Curt thank…

Name of Summer Show

Last year our summer show as called Eclectic Visions. At the debriefing of the show, it was decided to maintain the same name for consistancy and other reasons.

Yet, on one blog or another in the last month, there have been suggested two other names for our summer Artspring show. They are: Photo Eclectic and Through the Lens.

Last night the club decided to open the door to any other name suggestions. After an appropriate amount of time (a month or so) we will…

Bob has asked me to assist with public relations. I heard that Li Read wanted to interview art groups on her CFSI morning radio show. Long story short...I will be on her show on Wednesday October 20 between 8 and 8:30 AM. Coffee cup in hand. I want to hightlight the on-going display at Salt Spring Roasting Company and the November showing at Country Grocer. Of course I plan to also talk about the wonderful support system that Bob, Tom and Simon started last year for Salt Spring photographers.

August minutes

Pierre introduced the new team who will help shape the Club in the future.

Simon Henson

Larry Citra

Maggie Vancik

Roger Brooks

Maureen Milburn

Ellen Vesterdal

Justene Tedder

Plus returning executive members:

Pat Page

Kahsia Hartwell

Wendy Rosier

Anna McColm

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.
