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 this year's Double Exposure exhibition has been postponed until 2011.
Hopefully most of the current pairings will continue. 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.

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.
