From “Mountain Rhapsody” by Del Owens

Come join us for spirits, refreshments and photography as we celebrate the holidays with our fellow members of the Sierra Club New York City Group. Festivities will include our Members’ Night show (bring up to 5 images), a raffle of Sierra Club items, Del Owens’ Mountain Rhapsody slide show set to music—and a silent auction of five of his framed prints from the 2011 Calumet exhibit.

Members’ night: Members may show up to 5 images in either digital or slide format. Please arrive by 6:15 pm to load your digital images (memory stick or disc) into the computer or your slides into the tray. Digital images should be sRGB, 72 ppi, 1024 pixels long for a horizontal image, 768 pixels tall for a vertical image.

Silent Auction of framed photos by Del Owens at December 12 meeting

A silent auction of five photographic prints by Del Owens will conclude our Holiday meeting. The prints were part of our Calumet Moments in Nature show in 2011. Each photo was framed and matted for the exhibit. The mats are not signed. Del sent his slides to The Slideprinter in Denver, CO. They mounted his prints on foam core board. His hand written labels can be found on the back of some of them.

Members can write their bids on tablets in front of each print before the beginning of the meeting and during a break. The highest bidders will be announced at the end of the meeting. Cash or check will be accepted for payment. If the starting price is not met, the print will not be sold. High bidders can make arrangements with Charles Dexter to pick up their print(s) or bring a protective carrying case.

The proceeds will go to the NYC Sierra Club Photography Committee.
