Scenes of Rural Canada
Originally called the "Every Angle Photography Association", it has been in existence for over 40 years and was renamed to Brockville Area Photography Club in 2017. The club was established for the purpose of assisting with development of photographic skill, knowledge, and awareness that photography is a form of art.
All levels of skill are represented ... from beginner to expert. We do not "teach" camera usage, but our meetings provide opportunities to share camera knowledge, discuss a wide range of photographic topics, and socialize.
Throughout the year we meet twice a month (the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month). Our meetings include special guest speakers and interesting presentations from our own members, monthly photo challenges, and opportunities to review our artwork in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
We also seek opportunities for local photo shoots, exhibitions, field trips, and to connect with other camera clubs.
Finally, we look for ways to use our photographic talent to support various community causes, such as providing framed prints for the Palliative Care section of St. Vincent Hospital, and in patient rooms at BGH. Club members have also donated their time taking photos for the Palliative Care golf tournament, and for the Brockville Theatre Guild.
We are currently in our second year of a print calendar project with a portion of the calendar sales going to the Brockville General Volunteer Association. The winning entries from this year's Juried Exhibit will be included in the 2022 calendar.
Annual Juried Exhibits
The club's Annual Juried Exhibit is held each year to celebrate the photography of our members. Members submit artwork that responds to a theme and guest Judges are invited to review the work and determine the awards.
The theme for the 2021 Annual Juried Exhibition is: "Scenes of Rural Canada".
Rural refers to the countryside outside of cities & towns, but it can include village scenes.
The "Larry Price Award" is given for BEST OF SHOW and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and honourable mentions are given in three categories:
- Black & White
Colour and B&W categories can include traditional examples of in camera special effects or post processing but should have identifiable subjects or locations.
The new Experimental category is to allow for total freedom in creativity, and can include extreme examples of camera techniques and post-processing such as:
- In camera zooming/rotating, long exposure, double exposure, abstract, etc.
- Edited collages, triptychs, layers, composites, or other software effects.
Larry Price was a long-time member of the club. For those that knew him, he was far from quiet but full of love and had a great passion for life, and that showed in his photography. He would have appreciated all the images submitted to this exhibit, and would have had something to say, loudly, about all of them!
Awards will; be announced on December 1st.
We hope you enjoy the online exhibition and stay tuned for the announcement of the awards winners!
Information about each artist can be explored through the individual profile pages below.
