Greetings to everyone and Happy New Year!

The Catawba Valley Camera Club, in conjunction with the Hickory Museum of Art, will be hosting a gallery opening of the winners of the IMAGE*INATION photo competition at the Hickory Museum of Art on Friday, January 4th at 6:30pm.  Anyone who is available to come help set up is encouraged to do so.  This event will replace our normal first meeting of January.  Please plan to attend this event and bring family and friends with you.

As of this time, I do not have the 2008 club event schedule.  As soon as I receive that information, I will update that section of the website.

Please stay tuned for the posting of the 2007 year-end winners.  I’m still trying to gather that information.  Once I have it, I will post it here…

Christmas Party & Year End Awards

Greetings to the Club…


Our annual Christmas covered-dish dinner and year-end awards ceremony will be held on Wednesday, December 19th, at 6:30pm.  Come early if you can to help set up.  We will have dinner and the awards in the same room this year instead of two different areas.  The dining room area is at the North Annex of the Arts Center just past our normal meeting area.  There will be folks wandering around if you are unfamiliar with the spot. 

December 5th Meeting

The Catawba Valley Camera Club will meet on Wednesday, December 5th at 7:30 pm.  The meeting topic will be a critique night.  Bring up to 10 images (slides/digital/prints) for group critique. 

Photo Gallery for Members

I’m working on setting up a photo gallery for members where each club member can upload photos and create their own online photo albums.  I need 3 or 4 people who are interested in having this functionality to do some testing on the site.  If you are interested in working on this project with me, please let me know…
