The RA Photo Club Gallery, operated year round in the entrance foyer of the RA Centre west wing, is a top quality resource for displaying the work of club members. Initiated in 2004 and managed by a volunteer club committee, the gallery program is open to everyone from seasoned exhibitors to those just starting out in photography.
Exhibits are generally scheduled on a monthly basis, sometimes designed around a central theme but also including open displays having no basic theme. New exhibits are installed in the second week of the month. The gallery committee particularly welcomes exhibit proposals from club members either on their own or as part of a group.
Organizing a photography show, especially for the first time, can be a daunting and expensive proposition, but this venue provides club members with an opportunity to display their work without great cost. For those new to exhibiting, it also ensures a user-friendly environment. The gallery committee provides the frames, hardware, and expertise, and members just have to provide the matted prints.
Quick start guide to the RA Photo Gallery
To submit a proposal, send your image(s) either by email to email@example.com on CD to any member of the committee. The image should be no more than 768px on the longest side. For assistance talk to one of the Gallery Committee members who will assist you in submitting a proposal. If your proposal is accepted, be prepared to provide your print matted in a 16x20 mat with a total thickness no greater than 1/8". It is recommended that you use a white or off-white mat (or optionally black mat). This tends to work best in a gallery setting. That's it in a nutshell. If you need guidance or additional information just ask any member of the Gallery Committee. Submission details can be found on the web site www.raphotoclub.ca. Looking forward to considering your proposals.
The success of the gallery depends on submissions made by you, the members of the RA Photo Club. Be inspired by one of the "themed" exhibits or take advantage of an "Open" exhibit to propose your own ideas.
