Our library has put out the call for artists and that includes photographers to have their work purchased by and hung in the new library.  This is a competitive opportunity for Salt Springers.  Submissions must be made by September 14 and the final art piece must be ready by Oct. 29.

If you are interested, go to: http://saltspring.bclibrary.ca/  You will find guidelines and application forms.

I plan to let the Chief Librarian know that the Photo Club would be interested in showing our work in the new library as part of our on-going sharing of photo-art with the community.

Reading the pdf specs from the library was pretty daunting - very big spaces.  I wonder why the library wants permanent art?

Good idea for the "sharing." I suppose "photo-art" is what we must call it?  (Very uncomfortable with modern usage, moi).

I checked in the library today and the application forms aren't actually ready yet. I imagine they will be finished soon.

Good idea about putting our club stuff up there, Curt.

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.
