Portraits of You

There is  will be launching a juried Photography Exhibition, entitled: “Portraits of You” at the DCMA: April 16July 9, 2017. The Deadline for Entry is March 20, 2017. There is no entry fee for the show and there are three prizes to be awarded. The show will be displayed in our beautiful Silo Gallery.

The Dufferin County Museum & Archives (DCMA) is pleased to announce a juried photography exhibition, entitled: Portraits of You. From
moments of laughter, curiosity and struggle to the ever popular “selfie”, we are drawn to photos that represent our truest selves. This exhibit is intended to feature photographs with people as the subject; the person must be displaying an emotion.

Hidden Valley Guided Tours

In the fall of 2017 there is a Hidden Valley show meant to bring awareness to Hidden Valley. For the past thirteen years  Kitchener and the Region of Waterloo have been encouraged to aim towards bringing into public ownership the Environmentally Protected Area (EPA) inside Hidden Valley and thus guaranteeing that this wonderful natural heritage area would be protected for generations to come.  This juried exhibit brings attention to Hidden Valley, a natural treasure that should be expanded and preserved.

They are looking for submission of photographs and we have our own guided tour guide available to us for hikes at Hidden Valley. Hidden Valley is in the heart of Kitchener, and has never been farmed before.

People are welcomed to walk the trails any time, and join the guided hikes. Since the show deadline is about a year away there is plenty of time to go out several times and capture images of various seasons.

To add your name to guided tour, please fill out the form below:

Congrats to our ‘Top 2015 Photographers’

Image Evaluation Night – Monday February 22

On Monday February 22nd, we will have an opportunity to have judges offer critiques of our images.  This is not a formal judging, however they will provide us with feedback that we can use to improve our craft.

We have room for about 30 to possibly 40 images.  If you are interested in participating please send no more than two images per person.  Please name your images so that we know which is your first and second choice.  ie. 1-Sunflowers, 2- Snowy Owl.

As we only have a limited number of photos that the judges can view, we will select them on a first come first serve basis.

Let’s see what you got!
