July 8 2017 brought the opening of the 2017 L&CPU Exhibition and the presentation of awards for successes in the Club Annuals in March and the more recent Annual Individuals’ Competition.
The exhibition includes prints by Wallace Baxter and Kath Hill. My “Connoisseur” is also there, having been used in the 2016 PAGB competition.
It is at Urmston Library and parking is easily available in the adjoining Sainsbury’s car park, which is free for 3 hours. You will get an excellent impression of what does well in regional club competitions these days – and there were many genres represented.
After inspecting the prints we were assembled to see the awards presented and the highlights for us were the Commendation to Stephen Coyne for “That Cigar Moment” and the first place and gold medal to Ian Whiston for best performance in the nature digital section.
Urmston Library, 34 Golden Way, Urmston, Manchester M41 0NA until 29 July. Open Mon – Sat 10am to 5pm Except Tuesday and Friday when it closes at 7pm and Saturday 4pm.
