Our Annual Exhibition

The annual exhibition is getting ever closer.  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 21st evening being reserved to erect the exhibition.
The exhibition will be open from 10am to 6pm daily. There will be an exclusive evening for Members on the Thursday 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.
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 this website on the APS Annual Exhibitions page. Please 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

The government has removed domestic restrictions in England. The following APS guidance will be reviewed monthly by the committee. Please contact a committee member if you have any comments or suggestions relating to this guidance.
APS returns to live meetings for the 2022/23 season. At the time of writing (August 2022) the summer wave of COVID infection in the UK population is declining.
There are currently no plans for “hybrid” Zoom meetings. Where advertised, some SIG meetings will be Zoom only and occasionally a speaker may appear in the Drake Hall over Zoom.
Wearing a face mask during meetings is optional. To maximise personal protection, FFP2 or FFP3 grade masks should be considered.
Please do not attend a meeting if you feel unwell, have COVID symptoms or have tested positive in the past week. 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.
