SPAC & The Sidney Shutterbugs Camera Club:
A Creative Collaboration

The Point of View (POV) Challenge is a yearly event involving members of SPAC and our good friends at the Sidney Shutterbugs Camera Club.

Each fall, the Sidney Shutterbugs sponsor a club competition that kicks-off their membership year. From the member-submitted photographs, the Shutterbugs vote for the top ten qualifiers which are then presented to SPAC members who, in turn, vote for one winning image. This Artists’ Choice serves to inspire artistic creations by SPAC members in any medium, from painting to drawing, pottery to fabric, wood to paper, using the chosen photograph as a jumping-off point.

This season’s Artists’ Choice, “Umbrellas in the Sky”, was taken in Avignon, France by Anne Teichroew.

Traditionally, the Artists’ Choice image and the creations that it inspired are collected and exhibited at the Winspear Centre in April culminating with our annual spring show at the end of the month. This year, however, we are bringing the POV show to you! Click on the first page of the virtual display below to view the creative work of our members.
