SALES: And speaking of Provence, congratulations to Monte Arnold, who has sold a photograph from the current Patterns exhibition. Also on the celebration list are Mike Gannon and Renee Lowery with sales from our recent show at Gordon JCC. Renee sold not one but both of the photographs she had hanging in the show. Way to go guys!
NEXT MEETING: For our July meeting, we will return to Dury’s on Tuesday, the 26th at 6:30. The program will be presented by founding SNAP member Wendy Whittmore. As owner of Aerial Innovations, an aerial photography company, Wendy has expertise in an area of great interest but little knowledge for most of us. She will discuss “Drone Photography”, a rapidly developing field for commercial and creative work.
