Cudgegong Camera Club Exhibition

The Cudgegong Camera Club is having their first formal group exhibition and it is a cracker..

11 photographers from the club have amassed an amazing collection of over 100 photographs for you to view.

Opening night  on Wednesday 6th July was successful and a considerable number of works already sold.

It is always exciting to see a group of relative amateur artists present such a professional and credible collection of work.

Make sure you get out to support this exciting group exhibition.

Exhibition runs through till August 15th @ 5pm.

Kashgar street (China) – Sandy Smith

The Cudgegong Camera Club was formed in 2009 and provides a venue for photographers
to develop their camera skills and join others in sharing their images.

“Visions – art through the lens”

is the club’s first major exhibition and follows their involvement in the M20 Art
Trail earlier this year. Over the past two years members have developed an
impressive portfolio of work from which this exhibition is drawn.

The club meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7pm upstairs at Club Mudgee. Guest
speakers are arranged for most meetings to display and discuss their work and demonstrate
various photographic techniques. The subjects discussed vary from portraiture, to
macro, sports, underwater and travel photography. At other meetings members
bring along their own images for discussion.

The club organises excursions to various locations where members can learn
how to compose an image and to use different photographic techniques. This
year’s outings have included a night photography shoot, an excursion to Newnes
and a daytime shoot in the local area.

The club encourages photographers to display their work by staging an annual
photographic exhibition as part of Gulgong’s Henry Lawson Festival as well as
co-ordinating the photographic section at the annual Mudgee Show. It also
encourages members to enter other photographic competitions such as that run by
the Western Districts Association of Camera Clubs (which the club won with
their first entry in 2010).

The club also invites all members of the community to extend their digital
photography and computer skills, by attending the popular ‘Getting to Know Your
Camera’ sessions.

The Cudgegong Camera Club is a friendly, supportive club which always welcomes new
