FOTAG Pixhibition: Six Day Photo Challenge
- Schreiner Gallery
- Opens Thursday 2 May 2013 at 18h00
- Closes Sunday 12 May 2013 at 17h00
This selling exhibition is part of a fundraising drive by the Friends of the Tatham Art Gallery. They invited the public to donate six images, mounted on 12 x12 cm blocks, taken on cell phones and based on the following themes:
- 1. Monday: BLUE
- 2. Tuesday: BEST PART OF YOUR DAY
- 3. Wednesday: NEARLY THREE
- 4. Thursday: 9 O'CLOCK
- 5. Friday: ESCAPE
- 6. Saturday: RELIEF
The organizers, FOTAG committee members Mhairi and Heather Pattenden, say: “The art of cell phone photography, otherwise known as phonography, has moved on from just point and shoot to a more sophisticated art form and hobby. People now tend to spend more time editing and 'photo shopping' their images and it is this new aspect that we focus on for the upcoming exhibition”.
From the opening night the photographs will be sold at R50 each and proceeds will go towards the acquisition of new artworks for the Tatham Art Gallery.
