Coming Soon: All meetings/activities cancelled/postponed until further notice due to Covid-19 restrictions

Hopefully your self-isolation includes access to your studio! We hope you are all well and fully stocked up. The good news is that Art doesn't go off. So it is still worth doing the work now in anticipation of future exhibition.
Double Exposure V, 2020, Kern Arcade 4Lease Gallery, 25 June - 12 July 2020

Double Exposure is a collaborative project with the Rockhampton Photography Club.

We match each printmaker with a photographer and the pair then work together on producing work(s) for the exhibition. This may cover any theme and the work can be produced in any way that you wish. Some ideas are listed on the attached information sheet but the possibilities of combining photographic and printing work together are endless. The results in past years have made for very highly regarded exhibitions.

Information for participants

Hello fellow Double Exposurers

The Coronavirus shut-down has certainly thrown all our lives into some level of disarray. I hope that you and yours are coping well with whatever situation you have found yourself in.

Of course none of us know how this is all going to progress so we are putting this year's Double Exposure exhibition on hold indefinitely. We will have the exhibition at some point - maybe later this year but maybe not until next year. We will keep assessing the situation for an opportunity and keep you posted.

In the meantime, I know that some of you had reached a point with your Double Exposure project that allows you to continue with your creations, and we encourage you to do that. Sooner or later your hard work will have its time in the sun.

However some of you have let us know that you are unable to make any progress at the moment - can't get together with your partner or can't get outside to take the photos you need or other restrictions, while the shut down continues. If you are happy with the plans your pair has made but you are not able to work on it right now, be patient and get back to it when you can. We will be sure to allow for more working time when we start looking for a new exhibition date.

If you have not been able to get started at all, or your situation has changed, don't worry. When things start to look up again we will check in with everyone about your situation and make any adjustments to pairings that might be necessary to ensure that everyone is able to be involved.

Phillipa and the DE Committee.
