Picture This set for Oct. 6
Rockland — Rockland Main Street, Inc. invites community members to grab their cameras and be a part of making history Saturday, Oct. 6. Picture This … A Day in the Life of Rockland is a fundraiser for Rockland Main Street Inc’s community events including the Festival of Lights, the Lobster Trap Tree and Summer Solstice Celebration. The event will challenge local and visiting photographers to document life in Rockland during a nine-hour period in one day.
“This is a great opportunity for photographers of all experience levels and ages, a fun family event," said Lorain Francis, executive director of Rockland Main Street, Inc. "Seeing Rockland through the eyes of the community and children makes for an amazing show."
Event central will be Yvette Torres Fine Art on Winter Street. Participants will start and finish there for registration, photo exhibits and the reception. The timing for the day will be a photo shoot in Rockland any time between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.; and the reception at the gallery from 6 to 8 p.m. Photographers will return to Yvette Torres during the day of the event for printing location information, if needed; to download printed photos for the slide show; and to hang printed photos.
All photos must be 8-by-10 inches; photos and downloads will be accepted all day. Basic event participation is $15, plus cost to print photo (at home or a local printers). Printed photos will become the property of Rockland Main Street, Inc., with photographers retaining ownership of the images themselves. All photos will sell for $25, un-matted in a 8-by-10-inch sleeve with a backing board (provided).
For registration forms, more details on the fundraiser, downloading and printing information, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org; forms will be emailed in return. Rockland Main Street, Inc. is a nationally accredited Main Street organization, taking the lead to keep downtown the heart of the community.
