Rotating Exhibit at the Saratoga Community Center

The exhibit is hosted by the Saratoga Area Senior Coordinating Council (SASCC) which operates within the Saratoga Community Center, 19635 Allendale Ave, across from West Valley College.  The SASCC is membership based and serves the West Valley:  Saratoga, Campbell, Cupertino, Los Gatos and West San Jose.  There are daily functions.  In the evenings the facility is rented to various local groups with no affiliation to SASCC.   Because the facility is rented to various groups, neither the SASCC nor the City of Saratoga is responsible for damage or theft.  

There will be two forms of photo display:  prints and digital.  Rick Varley has volunteered to be the contact for prints.  Kent Bossange will be the contact for digital images.  The prints will be rotated every 3 months.  Digital images may be rotated more often; details have yet to be confirmed.  The digital images will be displayed on the 82” TV monitor when it is not in use for a specific function. 

Participation:
This exhibit is open to all members of LGSCC that are active in the club.  To be active in the club you must have submitted at least one photo, printed or digital, into a competition within the past 12 months.  However, the photos submitted to this rotating exhibit need not have been submitted into a competition.    There are no “official” constraints on content of the images but keep in mind that this is a public facility that is open to children and adults.  The SASCC has the right to exclude pictures that are not consistent with its operations. 

Location:
The room used for the exhibition is the Saunders Room and its annex, as shown at the top of this page.  The hanging system consists of metal tracks mounted on the walls about 8 ft above the floor.  Photos are then suspended from the tracks with wire cables.

Framing Requirements:
The print must be able to accept a metal hook and must be rigid, eg rigid frame of wood, metal or plastic, or sufficient thickness of mounting board (2 layers suggested).  If you wish to protect your print, you may want to use a sheet of Plexiglas;  GLASS IS NOT PERMITTED.  If Plexiglas is used but without a frame to cover a matted print, then as with aluminum prints, the corners must be rounded.
Matted prints will be collected by Rick Varley at the regular club meetings.   Aluminum and framed prints must be delivered directly to the Saunders Room on the day of rotation.
Each picture must have the maker's name, email and photo title attached to the back (2 copies, one to stay with the print).  Please use the standard form used for entering prints into competition nights. 
There is room for approximately 30 prints.  The club has purchased 24 Uni-Frame plastic mounts for holding matted prints, ranging in size from 8x10 to 16x20.  You may enter more than one print but your second print will not be hung until everyone's first print has been hung. 

First hanging is February 22.  Prints must be dropped off at the Community Center between 10AM and 1PM.
