Image trail leads to successful exhibition at Clapham
5:36pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
“Mummy, I want a baby seal!” So exclaimed a young visitor while looking at a photograph of a seal at the annual exhibition of work by Settle Photographic Group at Clapham Village Hall.
The exhibition is now in its fifth year, and as usual was preceded by the Town Trail when the photographs were displayed in shop windows around Settle.
This combination has proved to be very popular with visitors and residents, and feedback from shopkeepers has been universally positive.
At least one couple have made a point of following the trail every year since it started, and another couple e-mailed to say that having seen what has been done in Settle they would try to persuade their own photography group in Ross-on-Wye to do something similar.
There was no set theme for the exhibition so members were free to choose for themselves which pictures to include. This meant there was a wide variety of subjects and styles of work for the steady stream of visitors to enjoy.
The exhibition was opened by local resident and personality Bill Mitchell (pictured with group chairman Gill Pinkerton) and a collection box raised more than £200 for Cave Rescue Organisation and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
