Photo show will run for week

January 03, 1994

Throughout this week, visitors to Cranberry Mall will have the opportunity to enjoy photographic works displayed by members of the Carroll County Camera Club.

Beginning today and continuing through Sunday, some two dozen photographers will exhibit their finest photos taken throughout the past year.

Jim Crist, president of the camera club, said 64 photographs will be judged today and tomorrow.

"The judging will be done in 10 categories," Mr. Crist said. "They include animals, wildlife, scenic, special effects, still life, nature, people, photojournalism, plants and flowers."

Each evening photographers will talk to visitors about their photos. Mr. Crist, who has been a member of the club for 12 years, said the annual show serves as a workshop for members who choose to participate.

"We spend all year learning about photography and techniques," Mr. Crist said. "This is our chance to share with others and show what we have learned."

The camera club began holding its photography show in Cranberry Mall in January 1988.

Shows before 1988 were held at the Carroll County Arts Council.

"We literally have hundreds of people that come out and see the show since we moved to the mall," Mr. Crist said. "We encourage people who come to see the show to select their favorite photos and then we give a little prize for the most popular."

In addition to the show, Cranberry Mall will sell 1994 calendars with savings coupons.

Many of the photographs used in the calendar were taken by members of the Carroll County Camera Club. The cost of the calendar is $4. All proceeds will benefit Neighbors In Need. Information: 876-8870 or 848-4391.
