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.....!
