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 ( 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!

December Holiday Party

In lieu of a meeting, we will be having our annual holiday gathering. Please bring your favorite side dish or dessert. We will also be doing the photo swap again this year! If you are interested in participating, bring a wrapped matted photo suitable for framing. This always brings lots of fun and laughter and legal theft! So please join us and bring your spouse or partner for the evening.

Again this year, we are having a special presentation brought to us by YOU! Our presentation this year will be a series set to music of your 5 Best Shots of the Year. If you are interested in participating in the show, go through your pictures from 2014 and pick your top 5. Send them to Peter Foiles: (1024 pixels on the long side is sufficient). Please include your name in a watermark on the photo so everyone knows who took the photo. The presentation will play during our holiday party as a homage to all our talented members! All entries MUST be sent to Peter by 12/2/15.

Clique Winter Show - December 2015

Please bring your framed, ready to hang, entries for the Members Show to the November meeting. All images MUST be framed with a hanging wire in the back, no exceptions. One of the best benefits of belonging to the Camera Clique is the Annual Members Show. We would like to invite all our members to participate. It is a nonjuried show, meaning you decide what to display and, as an added benefit, you can offer your prints for sale (the Delaplaine will collect a percentage of all sales as a commission. Who: All clique members whose dues are paid as of November 12, 2015

What: Submit up to TWO ready to hang (wire on back) prints. Please no entries larger than 16 x 24 outside measurement. Smaller is fine. If you havemultiple pictures in one frame, that counts as 1. Style and color of frames and mattes is up to you, but white black and grey make the hanging easier and are gallery/museum standards.

On the back of each framed print, place a label. On each label, we need your name, address, phone number, title of photo, price if it’s for sale or “NFS” if it’s not for sale, and a priority number 1 or 2. The number is the first and second to be displayed. It depends on the number of participants, but we will hang as many as we can. All “1’s” will be hung up and “2’s” will depend on number of entries.

Please email Peter Foiles: the titles and price of you prints so he can make the labels ahead of time

Please remember this is a family friendly environment and the we encourage you to keep this in mind when you make your selections. We reserve the right to deny any entry if it is considered to be inappropriate.

Drop off dates at the Delaplaine:

November 11th 6:00-7:00

November 21st 1:00- 3:00

Hanging party November 30th 6:30
