Our exhibition


So much hard work involved in mounting an exhibition! But I think it was worth it... The exhibition, entitled "Yorkshire - God's Own County" was part of this year's Saltaire Arts Trail.  We showed about 100 photographs (of Yorkshire of course) and an AV sequence, all taken by members of St Peter's Church Photography Group, of which I'm a member.  The church is a lovely space to show an exhibition like that, and I was really delighted with the way it looked.  We had a steady stream of visitors throughout the three days, even though the church is uphill out of Saltaire and thus a bit of a walk.  We received some very encouraging comments, especially pleasing since most of us have not exhibited our photos before.  We range from beginners with fairly basic compact cameras to more experienced DSLR users but none of us think of ourselves as 'pros'.  It's amazing how good an image can look when enlarged, well-printed and nicely mounted.  Well done everybody!


Just leave it a week or two before you suggest to me that we do another exhibition though.....!

  5. Great! Such an exhibition gives more value to your photographic work, and is at the same time a kind of reward for all of you. And the place was perfect for pictures!

  8. A beautiful spot for your display and looks as if your display units worked very well.
    Re your comments about noise in the workplace - I am not sure - the wood may have absorbed some sounds but the floor and desks were hard surfaces.

  10. Congratulations on your show, Jenny. And the setting! What a magnificent church! I, too, am a former senior warden, but our little country church is much smaller and "carpenter" Gothic. Jim
