Photo group exhibit to start

Winter in Central Otago by Shona Kebble.

The Howick Photographic Society [HPS], in conjunction with the Auckland Festival of Photography and Howick 175, will showcase a large selection of images by award-winning and emerging photographers.

The exhibition opens on May 30 with the public welcomed to view the wide range of styles and subjects on display.

It will run at the Uxbridge Centre in Howick from the opening until June 18. Opening hours are Monday, Friday and Saturday 9 am – 4 pm and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 9 am – 9 pm.

There are 73 images from 28 members together with another 91 images being shown on a large screen monitor.

All fine art works are for sale.

The photographs on display are all available for purchase in almost any size that you require, should you wish to have one or more of these works gracing your home or business.

The Howick Photographic Society was established in 1956 and today has a strong following of members from the very experienced through to members just starting out on their photographic journey.

Doug Mitchell of HPS said, “Experienced members regularly hold tuition forums for those wishing to improve and warmly welcome anyone with an interest in this art form with workshops, outings and competitions available for everyone.

“The club has a strong history of successes in local, national and international competitions.”

Physical meetings are held at the clubrooms below the Bridge Club at the Howick Recreation Centre Complex.

At the moment, all meetings are conducted on Zoom and new members have expressed their enthusiasm for the progress that they have made whilst having only experienced this form of contact.
