#Shopen2016: Private Views at the Shutter Hub OPEN 2016

The Shutter Hub OPEN 2016 is now underway, with Private Views at each of our three wonderful venues taking place last week, and with more events to come over the next month including talks, workshops, a Meet-Up and a really special photography Portfolio Review!

As you can see from the images above, we had a great time introducing people to the works on show and meeting some of the participating photographers, for three consecutive days! We had some excellent feedback from attendees over the three evenings, in particular that the standard of entries has been very high. The sets of photographs at each specific venue have an individual feel which means that they work together as a group, so it's well worth visiting each of our venues to get the full effect.

Many thanks to everyone who came along and made it really fun, and especially all those taking part in the exhibition.  Special thanks to all at Hot Numbers, Novi and Stir for making everyone welcome, and to all of our sponsors and supporters (see below).


The exhibition will now run until 24 July 2016. Follow #Shopen2016 on social media or join our mailing list (below right) for updates.

You can vote for your Best in Show at any of the venues, and you can also view the works in the exhibition and vote online here.
