Camera Club of Hilton Head exhibit open through May 4

The Coastal Discovery Museum will host the Camera Club of Hilton Head Island with their exhibit through May 4 in the Hilton Head Regional Health Care temporary exhibit gallery.

The exhibit showcases the artistic expression of many of the 175 club members as well as the club's Kurtzberg Award winners from Hilton Head High School Visual Arts Program in Photography. In addition to the exhibit, there will be a series of Saturday morning "Gallery Talks" during the course of the exhibition. The talks, which are on a variety of subjects for beginners through advanced photographers, will be led by expert club members: on April 5 Eric Horan will describe approaches to photographing wildlife in the Lowcountry; on April 12 Bob Ovelman will present "The Art of Painting with Light"; on April 19 Jean-Marie Cote will demystify digital file formats, sizing and resolution; and on May 3rd Carol Clemens will be answering the question: "What Can You and Shutterfly do with Your Photos?"

The "Gallery Talks" are open to the public and free of charge. The framed images as well as unframed photographs and note cards, will be available for purchase during the exhibition.

The gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 9 am until 4:30 pm and Sunday 11 am until 3 pm.
