Official Opening of the fourth successive photographic exhibition of Malahide Camera Club will take place in the Parish Pastoral Centre, Main St, Malahide, on Friday 10th February, at 7pm.
We are honoured that the Official Opening will be performed by Michael O’Sullivan, FIPF, FRPS, President of the Irish Photographic Federation, to which Malahide Camera Club is affiliated.
Our exhibition will take place again this year in the local Parish Pastoral Centre, adjacent to the St Sylvester’s Parish Church, in the Main Street in Malahide. This is a superb community facility, which makes an outstanding exhibition centre, and we are delighted to display our images here in the heart of the Malahide Community.
A total of 139 images will be exhibited, displaying a variety of genres of photography that we feel will delight, stimulate and move our viewers. Of significant interest this year is that there is a particular emphasis on images of Fingal.
The exhibition is testimony to the close partnership and cooperation that have always existed between Malahide Camera Club and the local community. Malahide Camera Club, through its annual fund-raising venture, has raised much needed and appreciated funds for the local community down through the years. The local community, in turn, has always been only too willing to support Malahide Camera Club in its many artistic, creative and photographic ventures and achievements.
Malahide Camera Club, founded in 1995, continues to grow into one of the most prestigious and successful camera clubs in Ireland. We meet every Thursday night in the Grand Hotel, Malahide and have over one hundred members, many of whom have received prestigious awards at home and abroad in recognition of their exceptional artistic abilities.
Fingal County Council played an important role in supporting the foundation and development of our club over twenty years ago, and we are pleased that we still receive their ongoing support and assistance. This year we are delighted to have received funding from the Council, recognising the importance of the arts in helping to develop healthy and vibrant communities.
The exhibition will be open to the public from 12 noon on Saturday 11 February until Sunday 26 February 2017.
