Better late than never, for the first time we have a gallery of the PDI part of the 2017 members’ exhibition. See the Galleries menu to find it.

I’ve developed a more streamlined process to tag these with the correct title and author, which should speed up was a very tedious process, and one of the reasons for not doing this before.

To get an equivalent gallery of the Prints, we’d need everyone to send in matching, properly named, files for all their images.

The first two PDI competition galleries for 2017-18 are now online- see the menu links under Galleries.

The exhibition of EPS members’ work is now up and running in the Art and Design Department of the Central Library, George IV Bridge (formerly the Fine Art Library). Many thanks to all who contributed – the response to our request for prints this year was excellent and  we had plenty to choose from. Everyone who handed in their work to the EPS is represented and it is encouraging to see quite a few folk taking part for the first time.  Now the work of 26 authors is on display. The exhibition looks good and with a variety of both very high standard and less experienced work to see, it will give our visitors an excellent overview of what the Society is all about – it is well worth a visit. We were getting favourable comments even as we were putting the prints up!

The Opening hours are Mon-Wed: 10am – 8pm, Thu-Sat: 10am – 5pm. The exhibition will run from Tuesday 3rd November until Saturday 28th November.

FINE ART LIBRARY

EPS EXHIBITION

NOVEMBER, 2014

 

PRINTS WANTED!

The Society holds an annual exhibition of members’ work in the Fine Art Library, George IV Bridge during the whole of November and we are now asking members to submit prints for this. We are looking for about 80 prints to fill the available space. Prints must be mounted on card and a minimum of 10 x 8 inches ( 25x20cm )   maximum 20×16 inches (50x40cm) mounted, and can be of any subject.

It is open to all members, including new members and beginners, as we are trying to show the public a representative sample the sort of work we produce, the idea being to promote the Society. We usually have room to display about four prints per author but you can put in more or less as you wish. Prints don’t need to be your latest masterpieces, older works are perfectly acceptable. Everyone who contributes will have at least one of their prints displayed and we will show as many as there is room for.

The prints for this exhibition should be left on the labelled shelf in the rack in the library by Wednesday 29th October at the very latest, marked for “Fine Art Exhibition attn, of Doug and Sue” and must have your name on the back of the prints and on the packaging (not just the membership number) as name labels will be produced. It doesn’t matter what league you are in we welcome work from all members.The library produces posters for this exhibition which are circulated round Edinburgh libraries and the image used for these is usually picked from early entries so there is an incentive to hand your work in as soon as possible!

This is a good opportunity to have some of your work put on public display. If any member is wondering whether to enter or has any questions about it, feel free to ask Doug Hamilton, Sue Hill or in fact anybody wearing a label, for advice.

A new look for the EPS Web site!

Welcome to the EPS’ new web site.  We hope you will find it easy to use and an improvement on the old site. The aim was to have a clean and simple modern site with a minimum of clutter. The dark background was chosen for good legibility and a sympathetic background for viewing images. Your comments and suggestions welcome- either in the comments below (will be moderated), or email Tom Gardner or use the contact form to contact the Webmaster. Feature requests will be discussed by the website group, who have jointly approved this design.

The main changes other than the new design (using WordPress) are:

Image galleries: The original image galleries will no longer be used, and we have also dropped the forum. This is because neither were used much in recent years, and we do not want to have a site people need to register with and log on to. Those who need to contribute news items or edit pages can be set up with an account with appropriate privileges. If you really want to look at the old image gallery site, it is still online here.

While the site can have images displayed locally in galleries, we are mainly going to be using embedded feeds from various Flickr groups that we currently have, or will set up. This will give members who use Flickr to add their images directly to these groups (currently DeLOS and the C-D group). For others, who do not wish to use Flickr, the relevant group person can  upload their images to the EPS Flickr account, or the member can email them direct to it, and they can be added to the groups from there with appropriate attribution to the photographer.

News items: We plan to have most of the news items posted on the EPS Facebook page, which will then be visible on the EPS website as a news feed on the front page. This makes it easier for members to contribute items as many already have Facebook accounts, and they can get a lot more exposure through social media sharing. However, some items will be posted direct on the site.

There will certainly be more additions to the site, but we felt that it was important to get a functional site up in advance of the new season, and additional content and improvements can be added.Please send any comments and suggestions to me, positive or negative- we need to know!
