Join club members (and ghosts) for the official ‘Show Reception’ between 7-9pm in the beautifully renovated gallery of the Medalta Potteries National Historic Site.

Support from local business makes it possible, once again, to shine the spotlight on Medicine Hat’s local talent. The support of sponsors such as Medalta, Heredity Homes, London Drugs, Tidy Truck Boxliners and Boylan Imaging plays an integral part in bringing this exhibition to the community.

In excess of 40 submissions are expected this year, the theme for which is a result of collaboration between the Medalta Gallery Committee and club members. With a theme as rich in possibilities as Medicine Hat is in history, club members are sure to demonstrate their talents through a diverse collection of works.

Photography Club President, Tye Carnelli, describes the upcoming show “as the culmination of a year-long personal photographic journey unveiling people, places and ideas that for many are now only memories and historical remnants and suggestions… A challenge that each [photographer] has answered eloquently…”
The free exhibit will be on display from 14 November through until 16 December.

The Medicine Hat Photography Club meets the second Thursday of each month at the Cultural Center, beginning at 7pm. They are the voice of photography within the community, exploring the limits of today’s technology and technique, helping understand the jargon and getting down to the essentials of it all, “making photographs.” The group is active through exhibitions, seminars, field trips, photo contests, and meetings that are always informative, exciting, and inspirational.
