Photos for the Member Show

November is a busy time for the Camera Clique! You need information about our Member show, and we want to reach as many members as possible, especially if you are unable to come to the next meeting on November 8.

All members in good standing are invited to submit up to three framed photographs for the annual member show, which will hang at the Delaplaine during December. The images must be suitable for family viewing, as well as framed and wired in a manner that is acceptable for gallery showing. Please make sure that frames and mats are clean and that it has sturdy wiring in the back for hanging. Sawtooth hangers are not acceptable.

For each photo you submit, please label it on the back on a separate, taped card with your contact information and the title and price (unless it is NSF). Also, please indicate your preference for order of hanging: #1, #2, or #3. We will hang all #1's, unless for some reason it is not deemed acceptable, and try to get all #2's as well, depending on how many we receive.

Please send this same information in an email to Cam Miller (cam.miller@comcast.net) who will be using the info to create wall labels and a price list for the show. Name, email, phone number, Image #1 title and price, Image #2 title and price, and (if applicable) Image #3 title and price. {Note: The Delaplaine will retain a 30% commission on pieces sold, unless you are a member of the Delaplaine, for whom they will retain 20%, so price accordingly.} Please send this information to Cam no later than November 22.

Photos may be dropped off at the November 8 meeting, at the Delaplaine on Sunday, November 19 from 1-3 pm, or at the Hanging Party at the Delaplaine on Tuesday, November 28, at 6:30. We always need volunteers to help hang the show, so if you can stick around to help, we'd love to have you!

This show is an opportunity to showcase the talent we have in our club. The opening reception is Saturday, December 2, from 3-5 pm.

Any followup details and reminders about the member show will be in the club forum, so be sure to check it regularly. We look forward to a great show of our best work!
