Benalla Camera Club's annual photo exhibition at the Swanpool Bowls Club held in conjunction with the Bald Archy's.
For the second year in a row, the Benalla Camera Club’s annual exhibition Still in Focus opened in conjunction with the Bald Archy exhibition in Swanpool on Saturday, July 5.
The 92 photos on display at Swanpool Bowls Club are the work of 24 photographers, six of whom are first-time exhibitors.
This year is the 60th anniversary of Benalla Camera Club, and president Jen Fawkes believes the photos are of a very high standard.
‘‘My observation is people have taken a step forward in their works with individual photo boards based on themes such as landscapes, portraits, heritage and the more creative contemporary work.’’
Many of the photographs were taken on club trips to the King Valley’s Gracebook Winery in March and to Melbourne’s Hosier Lane and the Victoria Market in April.
About 50 people attended the launch with many coming to vote on the People’s Choice Award after looking at the Bald Archy exhibition in the Memorial Hall next door. The winner of the People’s Choice Award will be announced on the last day of the exhibition which runs until July 20. Last year 1300 people voted and with more than 150 people through this year’s exhibition in just the first two days, Ms Fawkes is confident as many will visit this year.
Entry is by a gold coin donation.
There is also a display of old cameras at the Benalla Library during July.
Membership costs $40 per year (or $20 for social members).
