Fancy seeing over seventy beautiful, unique and fun photographs of Somerset, in a lovely gallery setting, captured by a mixture of talented people who take photos professionally, for the love of it, or both? :)
Well we were kinda hoping you'd say that, because we've created 'Picture Somerset' - a way of celebrating your amazing photos and stories of Somerset.
We've been sharing your photos on the blog for a year and a half now, but this month we've joined forces with artist and our friend Donna Vale at For Every Cloud to put together a photography exhibition that brings your photos off the phone/laptop and into the gallery!
If you'd like to visit the exhibition, the gallery address and the opening times for Picture Somerset are below.
We'll also be posting updates on a brand new Instagram feed @picturesomerset - do follow us as we'll be kicking that off with photos from the launch and from the photographers we're featuring in the exhibition. There'll also be highlights on our @somersetcool Instagram & Twitter, of course :).
For Every Cloud
(Look out for the blue For Every Cloud shop front, opposite the car park, on the other side of the street).
EXHIBITION OPENING TIMES 11th May - June 9th
Friday 11th May 7-9pm
(Picture Somerset Launch with a taste of authentic Cheddar and a taste of cider... till both run out! ;))
Saturday 12th May 10am-2pm
Mondays and Tuesdays Closed
Wednesdays and Thursdays 10am-4pm
When you go through the door at For Every Cloud, there's a shop downstairs and the gallery space is upstairs. Most of the photography is for sale, so it's also a great opportunity to support local talent if you do fall in love with a photo you see.
All that's left to say for now is that we really hope you enjoy the stunning selection of photos on show that create a diverse and cool picture of Somerset... the county we all love to bits! :)
