Photographic Society exhibits in woollen mills

in Arts

The Hodgson Loom Gallery at the Laxey Woollen Mills will be home to a selling exhibition by members of the Isle of Man Photographic Society, open to the public from tomorrow (Saturday)y until Saturday, March 11.

The society says the gallery provides a superb display area - warm, intimate, and with excellent lighting -and as always, it will be carefully curated by Julia Ashby-Smyth.

The exhibition is now in its sixth year at the gallery.

It will include both a wide range of subject matter (e.g.travel, portraits, natural history, landscape, and architecture) and features the work of a wide number of members of the society - some only recent recruits, some long-term contributors to the society.

Among the better known names of those exhibiting will be three of the society’s life members:

Dr Ruth Nicholls has had her work accepted at numerous exhibitions both nationally and internationally, her landscapes and floral studies in particular of the highest quality.

Ron Shimmin is a long-time member with an enviable record for producing highly artistic images with a meticulous attention to detail, whether architectural shots or street reportage.

Sue Jones is another long-time member, now a full-time professional working with Andrew Barton.

A total of 18 members of the society are included as exhibitors, each showing some of the best of their work, and all contributing to what will be an exceptional display of photographic talent, and making a visit to Laxey well worth while.
