Art Crawl Opportunity

Is anyone interested in putting some photos in the LIncoln Art Crawl? The date is Friday, March 18th from 5:30-9:00pm. I know some of you have been to the art crawl in Lincolnton - most of the downtown businesses are open and have artists showing their work in the stores and offices. It's a great way to get your name out. I mentioned at our last meeting that the Lincoln Economic Development Association (LEDA) office would like to have the photography club display photos in their office. I met with the woman from the office and looked at the room. There are several nice tables in a large conference room. So what I had in mind was one table for the club to do a display with information about the club, then whoever wanted from the club could display their own work on the other tables. So far, I plan to use a table, Roger and Kathy will use a table, Heather Rontii will use one or two, and possibly Janice Still. There will be no wall space for hanging photos, they will all have to be placed on the table, so you can either lay them flat or use easels. They don't have to be framed, but at least matted. The tables are about 6' X 30" and are very nice looking. You can put a table cloth on the table if you want, but they are nice enough that you wouldn't have to.
Set up will have to be that afternoon (need to be done by 5pm). I think most everyone takes everything down that night also. Depending on who all is interested, I will make a schedule for those of us displaying at LEDA to take turns "manning the displays."  There are 7 half hour slots, so if at least 7 us want to do this we will only have to be there for a half hour each.
Also, the LEDA is providing refreshements, so we won't have to worry about that at all.

I hope several of you will take advantage of this opportunity to display your work and promote the club at the same time - no cost to you!!!

You can send me an email letting me know if you are interested. Also, I'll make another announcement at our next meeting and see who's interested then.


January 2011 Meeting

Club President,Judy Broesder, welcomed members and visitors to our January meeting. She presented a monopod to Roger Goodson, winner of our club photography contest. Members discussed future programs and potential field trip options. We will be planning a field trip every other month with suggested trips including a local animal park, the Daniel Stowe Garden, Stone Mountain, a junkyard, Asheville Arboretum, Mendenhall Gardens at UNCC,  Old Salem and a west Lincoln trip. Any members with field trip or guest speaker suggestions please contact Judy Broesder or Kathy Goodson. Check the blog for updates on these upcoming trips.

Our program this month we practiced our photographic skills by critiquing several members photos. We looked at the photos for composition, content, subject placement, clarity, sharpness, and other attributes of the "perfect" photo.

Visitors and persons interested in membership are welcome to our club meetings. We meet the 4th Monday of each month. Our next meeting will be Feb. 28th. We meet at 7:00 pm at the Charles Jonas Public Library Community Room in Lincolnton, NC.
