Photo Exhibition opened in An Tearmann

The official opening of the Kilcullen Photography Club exhibition in An Tearmann last evening was a pleasant event of chat, tea, and a chance to meet some of the 11 photographers whose work is on display, writes Brian Byrne.

With an amazing variety of subjects, techniques, and individual photographic preferences, more than 30 photographs are on display and for sale, with the Bridge Camphill Community receiving a commission on each purchased.

Sarah Gillespie (above left), on behalf of the Bridge Community, welcomed those present, saying it was an opportunity both to acknowledge the contribution of Kilcullen to the Community, and of its own contribution in providing a space for opportunities like this. "It's wonderful to see something like this in this venue and so professionally mounted," she said.

Cliona Kelliher, chairperson of the Photography Club, thanked everybody involved, especially those from the Bridge Community, for facilitating the evening. "I think it looks fantastic," she said. "I'm delighted to see what we have achieved in such a short time. When myself and Mary Twomey got the club in motion, it was really just to have an opportunity to get out, take pictures and do stuff. I think it has become more ... we have a great bunch of people and hopefully we will go on to bigger and better things."

The photos are on sale in a price range from €30-€110.
