Dubuque: A City for All Seasons
Dubuque Camera Club Third Annual Exhibition
July 28, 2015 – October 11, 2015
Sponsored by Family Beer & Liquor
The Dubuque Museum of Art is proud to host the 3rd annual exhibition of photographs by members of the Dubuque Camera Club. The theme for this year’s exhibition is A City for All Seasons, signifying the vibrancy and diversity of imagery that can be found in Dubuque all year long. With support from exhibition sponsor Family Beer & Liquor, we are excited to be able to support this local group that is dedicated to exploring and improving their skills as photographers. Artists and other creative individuals can find fellowship, inspiration, collaboration, and constructive competition when they take the time and make the effort to regularly participate in groups, clubs, workshops, or colonies dedicated to their craft. Those who work in creative fields often work in isolation out of necessity and preference but when they have the occasion to participate in a group, or collaborate with another artist, the exposure can bring new ideas, themes, and techniques to their work.
For a beginner, it’s not always easy to attempt a new medium. Oil painters, potters, sculptors, and printmakers, for example, all have equipment and materials that require substantial upfront investments and need ample studio space. In a group like the Dubuque Camera Club where any skill level is welcome and the medium of photography is widely accessible, the motivated beginner can get started quickly and find an invaluable source of knowledge and support.
The Dubuque Camera Club was selected to exhibit at the Dubuque Museum of Art in 2013 and will again be doing a show in 2014. Below are the images that were submitted for the 2013 show and of the submitted images 22 were chosen for the show.
