Allhallowgate Methodist Church Hall

Ripon City Photographic Society Annual Exhibition

The 2017 Ripon City Photographic Society Annual Exhibition takes place in Allhallowgate Methodist Church Hall, Victoria Grove, Ripon, HG4 1LG, from 9.30am to 4pm on Saturday, 2nd

Thirty members of the Society have entered a total of 119 prints, to be displayed around the hall, and a further 133 digital images which will be shown on a 50" wide screen high definition television.

This will, as always, be an Exhibition of members' best work and will feature images that were placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each of our in-house competitions, along with those which were accepted for the recent Exhibition of the Yorkshire Photographic Union.

Other images on display cover a wide range subjects which speak of the varying interests of the members. All the images on show illustrate the skills which the photographers bring to their art both through the use of the camera and also, in some cases, through the application of post-production techniques to enhance their images.

A major feature of our Exhibitions is Cafe@RCPS which has provided welcome refreshment to visitors over a number of years, serving tea, coffee, soft drinks and a wide range of home-made cake. Cafe@RCPS is not just a place of refreshment, but a venue to meet old friends and make new ones; a place to discuss the photographs on show and to decide which three images on show are your favourites.

As in previous years, one lucky visitor will have the chance to win an A4 print of their choice but, if you are looking for a memento of your visit, you will have the opportunity to purchase some of the exhibits, or prints of other images taken by our members.

You may already have plans to come into Ripon on September 2nd to see The Great North Art Show, in the Cathedral, or Ripon Arts Exhibition, at Community House. If so, why not combine it with a visit to our Exhibition also. All three events are within a very short walk of each other.

Access to our Exhibition is easy as it is all on one level. Also, there are two car parks close by and the Bus Station is just a very short walk away.
