Two images by Bill Jackson, one of which is shown here (Hurricane in Havana), were accepted into “Sustainable Silicon Valley’s Annual Summit 2013”, a component of which is a display of art that best represents the theme of “sustainability”.
He also shared the following: “I had an image in last year’s Summit as well (which was also used for the cover of the agency’s brochure). I encourage any club member who supports earth-based sustainable solutions to enter your work that is consistent with this theme in next year’s Summit. It is held in May of each year and is, in my opinion, a worthy cause."
Sustainable SV Summit’s goals as stated on its website: “In the areas of water, energy and smart technology, the Summit catalyzes action for a more sustainable future by bringing together leaders from many sectors to understand barriers and exchange insights. Build bridges and find opportunities for collaboration and innovation, breakthroughs, results.”
This image of a snorting elephant (entitled 'SPF 100') is by member Ira Greenberg, who has dual membership in the Sunnyvale Photo Club and the PACC. Ira captured the photo on a safari to San Diego. The Sunnyvale Photo Club displays one of its members' photos at the library every month.
Congratulations to the above PACC members whose images have been accepted into the upcoming show for the 2013 Kellicutt International Juried Photo Competition. Our club did very well this year. In fact it's a record! (Because of the large number of images we have limited the lead image in this posting to 'Baylands Salt Flats', by esteemed senior member Marvin Wax.) We encourage all to view the rest of the images (incl. those of non-PACC members, at the links below.
Hanging in the Show: Elaine Heron, Lucy Kiang, Vidya Narasimhan, Nicholas Fullagar & Marvin Wax
