Exhibition Dates: January 30, 2017 - February 24, 2018
Circle February 2, 2018 on your calendar and come to the First Friday Opening Reception at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery from 5:30 pm through 8:30 pm to view Capture Brevard 2017. The exhibition will feature 26 photographs selected from 180 submitted to the Camera Club of Brevard’s 2017 Capture Brevard project. The exhibit dates are from January 30 through February 24, 2018. The upcoming exhibit at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery will offer the public a glimpse into the talents and visions of some of the club’s membership.
The idea for this show is based upon A Day in the Life, a series of photo books published in the 90s, each shot in a different location. The Camera Club of Brevard has taken that idea and expanded it to be a vision of life in Brevard County stretching over a period of time. Each photographer is given six months to shoot imagery and may submit up to 5 photos. There are no restrictions or requirements to the photos. The intention of the project is to showcase the talent of the membership. Work has already begun on Capture Brevard 2018. The dates of shooting for that show are October 2017 through May 2018.
The Camera Club of Brevard was begun in 1980 and currently boasts a membership of 220. It is a socially active organization and is open to any level photographer. They meet monthly at the Civic Center in Eau Gallie and offer a speaker at each meeting. The specialty of each speaker varies month to month in order to offer something for everyone’s niche interest.
The Camera Club of Brevard offers a variety of workshops, from location workshops, technical workshops, and field trips in addition to monthly speakers. The club has also earned the distinctive honor of having a “Canon Explorer of Light” address the club with an outstanding photography presentation once a year. Canon USA sponsors the event.
Capture Brevard 2017 is not a tourism show, nor is it intended to be a fine art exhibition, but rather a generally happy celebration of Brevard County. For information on the club or to learn about membership you can visit http://ccbrevard.org.
