This year the Salt Spring Photography Club’s premier photo show, Eclectic Visions, will be held at Art Spring 24 June through 7 July.


All members of the photography club are encouraged and welcome to participate.  Each member will receive a certain amount of space which will guide the member in determining how many small, medium or large framed images to show.  The actual hanging location of each image will be at the discretion of the non-member who hangs the show.


The amount of space allocated will be based on the number of persons who chose to participate.  This is also true of the cost to each member.  The cost will be in the range of:


15 members participating: $125 each

20 members participating: $ 95 each

25 members participating: $ 75 each

30 members participating: $ 65 each

35 members participating: $ 55 each

40 members participating: $ 45 each


Last year about 2/3 of the club members participated.  We now have 63 club members.


In addition to showing framed images (for sale or not), each participant may have photo cards and matted images for sale.


All participants will meet to organize the show during the week of May 15.  It is expected that all participants will assist in the show’s success.  Some of the responsibilities to be assumed are: sitting the show, publicity, reception (food and drink).


If you want to participate, please reply to this notice on this Blog site.  We need to have your notice of participation by May 6.  If you have decided not to participate, we do not need to hear from you. 


Please answer the following questions as you blog your intent to participate:

1. The maximum I am will to spend as a participant fee is: $_____________

2. I can attend an early evening planning meeting and I am willing to assume one or more tasks to make the show a success._______________yes.


I look forward to a wonderful and successful Eclectic Visions.  If you have any questions, please ask me on this site so that the answer is available to all members.

Anna is in

Anna isn't here right now, and I can't remember what the time line is to let you know, but I'm fairly sure she'll want to participate.

Doug,  I think that using the RoCo screen as a promotional screen is a good idea.  I am meeting with Avril on Monday to discuss our publicity.  As our Publicity Coordinator, let's see what she thinks?  We are meeting after the coffee gathering.  Curt

Count me in. $75 or less is good. I will be away on the designated planning day but am happy to participate in whatever way I can with organizing and helping out with the show.

Yes, I would like to participate and would be willing to pay $75 -- and would consider paying more if necessary -- and will be happy to meet and help however I can to make the show a success.

I am signing up and willing to pay $75 or more.  I certainly hope that we have 50% of the club members participating which will lower the fee to $65 or less.

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.
