Local photography talent is now on display at the Peppin Heritage Centre for the Edward River Art Society ‘In Focus’ exhibition.
It is the second annual ERAS photography group exhibition, featuring works by amateur photographers on a variety of subjects.
About 50 people gathered for the official opening on Thursday night, where they enjoyed perusing the works that cover a variety of local and international subjects.
The photographs are now on display until the end of this month.
The exhibition was officially opened by ERAS president Jan Harris and curator Bill Mulham, who relayed the history of photographers in Deniliquin.
‘‘I was part of the first camera club in Deniliquin who met at the Mann St Scout Hall in 1959,’’ Mr Mulham said.
‘‘Back then it was a lot of work having to develop your own photos.
‘‘I encourage photography; it’s a great hobby and it’s great to have the exhibition here each year.’’
The ERAS photography group, which was formed in 2011, meets on the first Thursday of each month at the Intereach Neighbourhood Centre in Trickett St.
Entry to the PHC exhibition, open daily until July 28, is by gold coin donation.
