2nd – 16th May 2020
‘Causeway Sunset’, David Martin, 2018
Dundalk Photographic Society is 40 years old this year and very proud to be able to display a variety of work from their current members at their annual exhibition. This exhibition, which doubles as an end-of-year competition, has evolved into a real highlight in their annual calendar. This year DPS welcome Les Forrester as judge from the UK to give his expert opinion in determining the best images on show. The club, over the last 40 years, has gone from strength to strength and consistently continues to compete at the highest international standard in amateur photography in Ireland, Europe and across the world. As enthusiasts, we embrace all genres of photography and have a cross-section of members that excel in many disciplines, from landscapes, to portraiture, travel photography and architecture to name a few. A healthy love for this, our own type of art, brings us together week after week, year after year, within Dundalk and it’s environs where they reach in to the community and help to bring talent and imagery to life for all to enjoy.
Preview reception: Friday 1st May at 7pm
