Meeting Tomorrow, Exhibit take down…

Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 28 is Paul Polycarpou’s critique of the SNAP 5th Annual Juried Exhibition. We will NOT be meeting at Dury’s, our usual meeting place, but at Gordon JCC and Paul will review the prints as they hang. This should be an informative and interesting critique by one of Nashville’s leading fine art personalities.

Please see the attachment for details.

Hello All Snap Push Pin Artist,

Take down for the Push Pin Show and the Snap JCC Show is scheduled for Thursday, June 30th, however Carrie at the JCC has told me if you’re coming to the Snap June meeting at the JCC on Tuesday, June 28th you may, after the meeting take down your art work.  Otherwise or if you’re not able to make the meeting and discussion about the show you will need to pick up your pieces on Thursday.

Thank you all that were part of both shows, yet another great Snap exhibit at the JCC!

Images from SNAP Exhibit Reception…

Bill Lund, a member of SNAP, shares some images he shot during our recent artist reception for the SNAP exhibit at the Gordon Jewish Community Center.

The exhibit is up the rest of the June, so try to stop by and see the fabulous collection of images.  Or join us for our next meeting, Tuesday, June 28th, at 6:30pm for a tour of the exhibit with the juror for the show, Paul Polycarpou, editor of the Nashville Arts Magazine.

SNAP Notes…

June is becoming a great month for SNAP! It began with hanging our 5th Annual Juried Exhibition at Gordon Jewish Community Center along with the revival of our “Push-Pin” show in the small gallery. Many thanks to Paul Polycarpou for judging the submissions, to Carrie Mills for curating and to Kay Ramming and Denny Adcock for organizing the Push-Pin show. Many thanks also go to David Morel for his yoeman efforts with graphics and promotion, and to Emily Passino  and Wesley Duffee-Brown for their organizational work and co-ordination of the submission process.

SNAP Notes…

Our 5th Annual Juried Exhibition and our Push-Pin Show are both up at Gordon JCC and they look great! Thanks to all the photographers who participated, and especially to those who helped hang the shows. A special “Tip of the Hat” goes to Kay and Denny for their work in getting the Push-Pin show organized and hung. The shows will be up until the end of the month. Don’t forget to visit both galleries to see the shows.

Our next  SNAP meeting on June 28 will assemble at the JCC at 6:30 where our juror for the exhibition, PAUL POLYCARPOU, will conduct a critique of the work. Paul is always an entertaining, as well as a highly knowledgeable, presenter. This critique should be of interest, not only to the participants, but to all Nashville area photographers.

That’s about all for now. Remember, if you are in an exhibition, been accepted for publication or have any photography related news, please let me know so I can include it in this email and on our web site.

Provence Call for Entries…

We’re on a roll!  On top of two outstanding exhibits at the JCC being seen this month, and a fantastic current exhibit at Provence on “Patterns” (where Monte Arnold has actually sold his excellent photograph), we’re ready to call for SNAP submissions for the next Provence SNAP Photography Show.  See details below

Theme: Photographs “inspired by the cinema.” Let your imagination roll with this one.  Images might be “about” movie goers, movie houses, actors, sets, scenes and the like. You might set out with the intention of shooting something inspired by a movie. Or, you might scroll through your portfolio and find images that you’ve already captured which are related to movies, movie themes, moods, scenes, messages, etc, etc. Continue reading
