EXPOSURE GALLERY – DAYDREAMER

NEW WORKS BY GREG ZENHA

OPENS THURSDAY MAY 12TH,  6:00PM – 8:00PM

Daydreamer  is an invitation to abandon the state in which things actually exist. The notion of story gives the viewer the power to reconfigure the image into something personally tangible and infinitely variable. The characters enable a psychological projection of fears and desires. Daydreamer explores the intersection of figure and setting, drawing away from the ideals of sanctuary within our atmospheric and personal landscapes. On a personal level, Daydreamer presents a world uncomfortably too natural.

Greg Zenha is a visual artist and educator specializing in large-format analog photography and printmaking. He is thirty-two years old and currently resides in Montreal, Quebec.

ON VIEW: MAY 12 – JUNE 8,  2016

Start a Web Site in an Hour

Jamie Johnson created and delivered a workshop on March 5, 2016 on the subject title. He recently also produced the first educational video to the club members for the same topic.

For those members that want to create their own website, here is the perfect introduction and hands on!

We encourage all members to take a look at the video to have a reference on the subject matter and what is needed to build your own website.

The video can be watched at Jamie’s website:

SPPQ Gala Presentation

I have 4 tickets for the SPPQ Gala Presentation to be held on Monday April 25th – two of which have still to be spoken for.

People that are going so far for the evening by fulling a car with 4 people:

Bill Woodley <woodleycw@aol.com>
Richard Quesnel <rquesnel9@gmail.com>

The Société de Promotion de la Photographie au Québec (SPPQ) represents about 50 Photo Clubs in the province of Québec (see link below). The Gala Night is a showcase for the « best of year »  images and Awards are given in a 4 major catégories :

  • Individual Club Member images;
  • Interclub Competition based on Annual themes such as : Animal, Human, Nature, or Black & White;
  • Audio Visual of the Year – 3 best will be shown; and
  • Photo Book of the Year – 3 best will be presented.

It may seem like a lot of presentations but I can assure you that all happens at  very rapid pace and I have not been disappointed in the years that I have gone. The Gala is being held at l’Étoile in Brossard Quebec (link below), we would drive down in the afternoon and return the same day and the cost of the ticket is $25.00.
