The Comox Valley Camera Club will hold its fourth annual photographic Showcase from Sept. 17 through Oct. 1 at the Muir Gallery in Courtenay.
With 75 images on display, the show promises to wow viewers with pictures of wildlife, landscapes, portraits, seascapes, architecture and sports, all presented by this talented group of local amateur photographers.
The grand opening of Showcase 2011 will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Sept. 16. Light refreshments and beverages, as well as a cash bar, will be available during the event.
Come out and meet the photographers, and learn how they’ve managed to capture their subjects, what tips they may have, and how their photography has evolved over the years.
A photo education session will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sept. 20. Club member Bryan Walwork will present Getting Better Photos From Your Point & Shoot Camera.
The public is welcome and, in fact, encouraged to attend this interactive session. Please bring your camera, a fully charged battery, a memory card, your camera manual and your questions.
Members of the Comox Valley Camera Club will be on hand daily throughout Showcase to answer your questions about the photographers, the images, the club and photography in general.
Admission is free, and you are invited to cast your ballot for your top three selections. The People’s Choice Awards will be announced following the show, and will be posted on the club’s website at www.comoxvalleycameraclub.org.
The Muir Gallery is located at 440 Anderton Ave. in Courtenay and is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
