Exhibiting your Photos

Exhibiting your photos to a broad audience, such as at the Nevada County Fair, is a fun way to show your photos to more than just your friends and family. It is a great way to learn how to make your photos look better and appeal to a broader audience. It has often been the stepping stone photographers have used to advance their art.

Club member, David Wong, will lead a group of long time photographers in showing us how to prepare to exhibit photographic prints at the County Fair in August and at other venues. David has been exhibiting for more than 12 years at galleries in Grass Valley, New York, and elsewhere. He teaches photography workshops overseas and has taught summer sessions at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY and nationally.

In addition to David,
Ellen Davis, Douglas Hooper, Peter Mason, and Kathy and Mark Triolo, all whom have exhibited extensively, will present and discuss the following topics:

• Determining where and how to exhibit, including the Nevada County Fair in August
• What to exhibit, categories, thinking like a judge, and some of the rules
• Formats for presentation, how to prepare your photos for printing, printing options at
  home and outside vendors such as Costco, Staples, Bay Photo, etc.
• Mounting including board types, dry mounting, cutting mats, metal prints, and more
• Labeling and submission processes

Examples of past winning entries will be on display.

Meetings are held at Unity in the Gold Country Church, 180 Cambridge Ct, Grass Valley, CA. Visitors are welcome
