HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE PCSCHH

MEETINGS: With the summer recess upon us, our next membership meeting won't be until Tuesday, September 8, 7:00pm, at Hidden Cypress.  The competition theme will be "Portraits" (speaker TBA). Participants are reminded of the mandatory requirement to submit their image files in advance to pcschh1@gmail.com.  See "Competition Guidelines" for complete requirements.  Before then, however, will be the The 8th Annual Tri-Club Competition on Thursday, May 28th here at Hidden Cypress (same room as our monthly meetings) with judging beginning at 7:00pm.  Plan now to participate in this signature event of the program year.  All the information on judging procedure and how to submit photos can be found here.  Note that the "two-year" rule and required presence by participants do not apply to the tri-club competition.

EDUCATION:  The fall schedule of studio classes will be published in late August.  Of course, anyone is encouraged to suggest a new class and/or volunteer to teach it.  Several current instructors have found the best way to become more familiar with a subject is to teach it.  Think about it, and contact Education Director Art Greene for more information or to volunteer.

INTERESTED IN MEMBERSHIP?  The cost is $20 for the first member and $10 for the second member of the same household.  Any Sun City resident who is considering membership in PCSCHH is invited to learn more about the club; visit the studio in the Yemassee Craft Center or come as a guest to the September 8th meeting, then join at the Club Fair in October and be paid up through 2016.  Check the calendar link below to see when the studio will be open with a monitor on duty.

FIELD TRIPS: Now online: Photos from Field Trips.  Thanks to Pat Roche, John Burrack and Hubbs Grimm for their initiative to provide a website featuring photos taken on field trips our members.  Click here to see what has already been posted and how to get involved.

KEEPING IN TOUCH: Has your e-mail address changed?  If the Club doesn't have your current address, you'll miss out on e-mail updates, the President's messages and other timely notices.  Send an e-mail to Tom Lehrer to update your information. 

MEMBER PHOTOS: Click here to view John Burrack's Shutterfly page featuring terrific photos from the Hummingbird and Butterfly Garden.  This is a Sun City attraction well worth visiting.

GALLERY EXHIBIT: The Lemon Island Maritime Center photo display from our Photography Club has only a couple weeks left before it'll be taken down.  If you haven't seen it, be sure to make the short trip to the Maritime Center - which itself is a well-presented story of the beautiful and fascinating Lowcountry marine environment.  For more information, visit  http://portroyalsoundfoundation.com/maritime-center/.

 

HILTON HEAD LIBRARY EXHIBIT.​The Hilton Head Library show will be hung on Monday June 15, 2015 and run through Saturday July 25, 2015. This has historically been a very good show for the club and we are expecting a large turnout of people who want to display (and possibly sell) their photos. The Library has changed the method of hanging from the wall using nails to a system with hanging bars.  At this time we are not sure how many we will be able to hang, so, we are limiting the number to three pictures for each artist.  We are also recommending, as a general guideline, a picture matted to size of 16 x 20 with the frame around 20 x 24.  Gallery Wrap pictures are also acceptable with the previous guidelines.  We are all looking forward to a wonderful and successful show this summer. If you have any question please contact Jim Wilson, (843) 3388074, jim@jimsviewphoto.com

 

 

STUDIO EXHIBIT: An exhibit "Making an Impression" is now open for viewing at the studio. Check the calendar for those times when the studio is not scheduled for classes or meetings and have a look.

  

At the request of the Community Association Management's Communications Department, 16 members of the Club volunteered to photograph all the events associated with Sun City's 20th Anniversary Celebration, May 2-9.  At mid-week Sandy LoPresti and his team took a break from their assignments to assemble for a group photo.

Pat Roche won the Abstract Category in May with "Color in Motion"
