SKPC at June Fest 2019 in Newbridge Townhall
This year marks the 10th anniversary of South Kildare Photography Club and, in order to celebrate the occasion, we are delighted to present an exhibition consisting of three different sections at June Fest 2019.
The main highlight of our expo will be "Rolling In The Years", a set of portraits of senior members from the community taken by our members in April this year. The images will be accompanied by short biographies of each person shown and promises to offer interesting insights into this special part of the community, especially as their total life experience adds up to over 1550 years altogether.
The second part of this year’s SKPC-contribution to June Fest is titled “From Far and Near”, showcasing some of the work of our talented club members in the areas of landscapes, seascapes, portraits etc.
The third section of our presentation this year is the exhibition and the announcement of the winning photograph of our secondary school’s photo competition. The students were given the topics “My Local Area” and “My Hobbies” and have been asked to submit one image for each of the topics. Several schools from the area took part and the winners will be announced on Sunday 9th with a selection of entries from the participating schools being put on display.
Opening hours are on Saturday 8th June between 6 and 9 pm with the official opening ceremony being scheduled for 6.30 pm and held by Lucina Russell, Arts Officer for County Kildare and on Sunday 9th June between 12 and 5.30 pm.
