Moments in Time - An Exhibition by Galloway Photographic Collective

Moments in Time is the brand new exhibition by Galloway Photographic Collective that opens to the public tomorrow (3 November 2015) in Shambellie House at New Abbey near Dumfries.

It is always difficult to put on an exhibition with seven different photographers who all work in different styles and genres albeit with occasional overlaps. However, photography is all about moments in time or perhaps several moments in time or even the passage of time and this exhibition is a show of precisely that.

From landscapes to wildlife, portraits to fantasy, 'Moments in Time' aims to have something for all viewers of all ages no matter what aspect of photography fires your interest or imagination.

There is also an audio visual installation by Roger Lever Photography that recreates the passage of time amongst the gannets on the Bass Rock.

Moments in Time has been several months in the planning and features work by the seven local photographers of Galloway Photographic Collective. Each of the photographers will be hosting a 'meet the photographer' session where you can pop along for an informal chat or just enjoy a coffee with the artist. The photographers and the relevant dates to meet them are:-

Tom Langlands      5 November
David Moses          7 November
Kim Ayres              8 November
Roger Lever           11 & 18 November (mornings only)
Giles Atkinson        22 November
Holly Burns            21 November
Allan Wright           (not available)

In addition to the exhibition by Galloway Photographic Collective there is also a Scottish Members' Print Exhibition  by The Royal Photographic Society.

The above exhibitions run from 3 November - 29 November 11.00 a.m. - 4.00 p.m. daily (except Mondays)

Shambellie House is a wonderful building that oozes history and charm but also needs care and attention. Bringing the building back into use and finding ways to allow it to show something of its splendour is one of the reasons that this is the venue for this exhibition.

Please pop in to see 'Moments in Time', meet like minded photographers, purchase early Christmas presents, exchange ideas or just have a pleasant trip out.

We hope to see you there.
