Flourish — the ability to not only survive but to thrive and prosper — pertains to all aspects of life and resonates strongly with club members and is why the theme was chosen for this exhibit. 


Each photograph represents one person’s vision of how living beings continue to flourish in today’s world.
The Nature Centre is excited to feature these works by outstanding local photographers.  The display runs from Nov. 4 to Dec. 28 during normal business hours, which are Tuesday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
There will be a special opening reception on Sunday, Nov. 16 starting at 2 p.m. and everyone is welcome. 
The hope is that southeastern Albertans take the opportunity to view this remarkable exhibit.
“We are always open to local artists or groups who are interested in showing their works as long as the art has some relevance to our area,” explains Marty Drut, Police Point Park’s interpreter for the Medicine Hat Interpretive Program. “Many of the photographers with the club were known to us and have even done volunteer work or other projects. We worked with the club to develop the theme and they did the rest.”
Drut adds there will be 14 artists/photographs on display in the Police Point Park centre’s main display area.
The photos have a variety of dominant subject matter including vegetation, animals, birds, landscapes, and people. All of them centre and relate to the theme ‘flourish’.
The Southern Exposure Photography Club began two years ago and membership encompasses a diverse range of ages, experience, and knowledge of photography. The Club meets monthly, except in summer, and they do a variety of activities at meetings.  These range from trying new photographic techniques and experiences to sharing their varied knowledge and information about photography to offering fascinating guest speakers.
The Southern Exposure Photography Club can be reached by emailing:  southernexposurephotoclub@ gmail.com
