Newton Camera Club Mounts Annual Exhibit at West Newton Cinema
There is a treat in store on the second floor lobby for moviegoers to the West Newton Cinema: an exhibition of 63 photographs created by 31 photographers in the Newton Camera Club. The photographs depict a wide range of subjects from landscapes to still lifes, abstracts to portraits. “We look forward to mounting this exhibit every year and showing our best work," said club member Ellen Foust. “This year Is particularly exciting because this exhibit is again in person as well as virtual. There is nothing like seeing a photograph up close in person to fully appreciate the subtleties of the light, composition, and the texture and tone of the photographic paper. Viewing a photograph online is very different.“ The Newton Camera Club provides photographers of all skill levels a forum for learning about photography and sharing their work. All are welcome. It’s mission is to provide a welcoming community for area photographers to learn, be inspired, to improve their skills, and to share their work. Members need not live in Newton. The club meets from September through May on the second and fourth Mondays of the month. Meetings alternate between presentations by external photographers and juried competitions, along with shows by talented members. Currently all meetings are virtual. For meeting topics dates and to learn more visit newtoncameraclub.org. To see the West Newton Cinema show and other work by member photographers, visit the online galleries newtoncameraclub.org/gallery. The West Newton Cinema exhibit runs through the end of January. To view the exhibit without seeing a movie, just tell the box office you are there to see only the photography exhibit.
