The Juried Show was a great success last night. We set a record for attendance with 304 people and there was lots of wine and food to enjoy thanks to the donations of local businesses as well as our club members.
A big thank-you goes out to the members of the Show Committee, including the chair, Paul Barret, who helped plan and hang the show. Also, lots of thanks go out to the many members (and their families) who helped with set-up and clean-up last night. Our show would not have been as successful without your help and it definitely didn't go unnoticed or unappreciated.
Congratulations to all our winners and to anyone that was fortunate enough to even make it into the show. Over 50% of the entries were eliminated by the judges and they definitely had a difficult task in making those tough choices. The show results have been posted to our website.
If anyone has any photos that were taken the night of the show opening that they'd like to share, please send them to me so that we can post them on the website.
Mark your calendars for our next monthly meeting on Monday, May 28th at 6:00 pm. (Although this meeting date falls on Memorial Day, the club members agreed at the last meeting to keep it on this date rather than change it.) After the business portion of the meeting, we will be discussing the show and we the judges will be joining us to provide some feedback on their thoughts and perspectives.
My name is Bob Haefner and I am the president of the Susquehanna Valley Shutterbugs. I encourage people who have an interest in photography to come to a meeting. We use the meetings to educate the members and promote photography as an art form. You can also check us out on Facebook under "Susquehanna Valley Shutterbugs" to see more.
