Gerringong Pics and Flicks

07/12/2018 @ From 08:00 PM

Pics and Flicks December movie is ‘C'est la Vie’ Forget Bridezilla. C’est la Vie boasts Groomzilla Pierre (Lavernhe), whose attempts to micromanage his lavish 17th century chateau wedding to Héléna (Judith Chemla), prove trying for the wedding planner and his battalion of catering staff, musicians and serving staff. It looks fabulous but behind the scenes they've lost the DJ, the photographer keeps eating the canapes, the lamb spoils and there's a rumour that someone from the taxation dept is sniffing around the event. The wedding planner's brother-in-law, a depressed teacher coming back from a breakdown, is secretly in love with the bride and the groom's mother is popping up on a dating app. Director: Olivier Nakache & Éric Toledano Starring: Jean-Pierre Bacri, Gilles Lellouche, Jean-Paul Rouve, Vincent Macaigne, Alban Ivanov, Suzanne Clément, Judith Chemla, Eye Haidara, Benjamin Lavernhe Genre: Comedy Running Time: 100 min Come and enjoy a charming French comedy as the final Pics and Flicks film for 2018 Tickets go on sale at Gerringong Town Hall at 7.20pm with the film starting at 8.00pm.

Gerringong Christmas Soiree

07/12/2018 @ 04:00 PM – 07:00 PM Gerringong NSW

Everyone's invited! Get your Christmas shopping sorted at Gerringong’s Christmas Soiree. Exclusive deals, entertainment, Santa, champagne and prizes are all on offer.  Make an evening of it - bring a picnic blanket to enjoy the entertainment in the Old School Park on Fern Street.  Buy the perfect Christmas gifts from Gerringong’s diverse range of boutique stores, which will be open until 7pm, offering special in-store discounts and experiences.  Santa will be making appearances from 4-7pm in the town centre, spreading Christmas cheer – and lollies for the kids – while street musicians will add to the festive vibe.  Also in the park is our very own locally-designed Christmas Wishing Tree, so that everyone can express their wish for both loved ones and strangers. The idea is simple but powerful: write your wish for someone on a tag and tie it to the community tree’s collection of good wishes for the world. Make sure you collect a raffle ticket with each purchase at participating stores, and drop your tickets at the Mega Soiree Raffle table in the park. At the end of the night three winning tickets will be drawn.  Proudly supported by the Gerringong Association, the Christmas Soiree is a great night for getting into the Christmas spirit. Shopping local makes a huge difference to local businesses and the local community.

Landscapes @ 85 by John Harris Exhibition

26/11/2018 - 09/12/2018 @ From 10am Gerringong NSW

Landscape photography is where I started my journey as an artist and a photographer. This exhibition shares my exploration of a different view of our world. Traditional landscape images tend to be shot with a wide angle lens – generally between 16-35mm. This perspective is one that I love – allowing you to focus on an interesting foreground, while providing greater context (usually along with a magic sunrise or sunset!) in the background. Typically, the whole image is in sharp focus in these images too. However, my experience as a wedding photographer has taught me to capture a scene in a range of perspectives to better tell the story. So I’ve started to view my landscape photography with a wedding photographer’s eye – capture the wide view for sure, but then ask myself – what interesting elements exist within the overall scene? Therefore, during my most recent overseas adventure I forced myself out of my comfort zone by taking along a fixed focal length lens – the Canon EF 85mm f/1.4 L IS. The narrow field of view of this telephoto lens allows me to focus on a particular element within the landscape, yet still provide some context for the image. When needed, I can also isolate the subject using shallow depth of field for more artistic effect. For me, shooting landscapes with the 85 represents not only experimentation, but also an evolution of my artistic expression. The narrower field of view of this lens challenges me immensely in the context of landscape imagery. There is less flexibility in creating a compelling composition, which requires more thought, patience, and exploration to create the images you see today. Monday to Friday 10am-5pmSaturday and Sunday 10am-4pm
