County Classics- The Exhibition-Richard Cutbill Photography
On Now in the foyer of Dungarvan Library, Davitts Quay, Dungarvan Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm (Wednesday & Thursday open unit 8pm) and will run for at least two weeks.
The 'County Classic' collection was formed for the Dungarvan Observer who ran a weekly competition showing a photograph of a view within County Waterford. The readers were invited to write in to the newspaper and in less than 20-words convince the Editor James lynch why they would like to own the Print.
The winner would receive a first edition A3 sized print, mounted & framed. The superb image printing was carried out & Sponsored by Murray Pharmacy-Fuji Digital Image Services (Gratton Square, Dungarvan). The excellent double mount & hand made black frame was Sponsored by Pat Ahearn of Dreoilin Glass Quality Mounting & Framing Services (Shandon Business Park, Dungarvan). This competition ran for 20-weeks, the images are on display today, printed and mounted by my sponsors.
I think we were all surprised by the initial and continuous response of the readership; it has certainly been very successful, for in reminded readers just what a beautiful County we inhabit. It was amazing what these images meant to some people and the memories they provoked, for a photographer it has be a truly wonderful experience.
