Our Annual Exhibition

The annual exhibition is getting ever closer.
I sent out a first reminder of the exhibition in March.
As in previous years the exhibition will be held at the superb venue of St Michael’s Church on Sycamore Road, Amersham, between the 22nd and 27th August with the Monday evening being reserved to erect the exhibition.
The exhibition will be open from 10-00am to 6pm daily. It is anticipated there will be an exclusive evening for Member’s on either the Thursday or Friday evening.
There is still plenty of time to consider which images you would wish to exhibit, or indeed, to go out and take some fresh pictures. The Jubilee holiday is an ideal motivator to add to your portfolio.
Do remember this is for all members to exhibit their work, go on, produce some work, it is highly likely that it is of a greater quality than you might imagine.
The full details of the exhibition print requirements are set out on the website in the APS Annual Exhibitions section. Can I request that you do take a few minutes to look at the rules for the exhibition, it avoids potential disappointment to the exhibitor if the print does not meet the criteria for display and is subsequently unable to be shown.
As a reminder to established members and as a plea to new members, without stewards for the exhibition it will not be possible for it to take place. Ideally, I need 4 stewards per session. It is not an onerous task and tea and coffee (possibly biscuits!) are provided.

APS Covid guidance

  • Government advice states that individuals can still reduce the risk of catching and passing on COVID-19 by wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, especially where you come into contact with people you do not usually meet, when rates of transmission are high.
  • Due to our age demographic and some specific vulnerabilities, we continue to strongly encourage that for indoor meeting rooms, including associated groups, you should wear a mask unless you are exempt.
  • Attendees must be fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID test from that afternoon.
  • Please do not attend a physical meeting if you feel unwell, have COVID symptoms, have tested positive in the past week or have been in close contact with someone who has either symptoms or a positive test.
  • We will not seek evidence of vaccination or negative tests. We rely on our members to act sensibly for the protection of others and themselves. We will continue to use hybrid meetings whenever possible.
  • This guidance will continue to be reviewed monthly by the committee.
