SNAP Notes…

Hi, SNAPpers! I hope everyone is taking advantage of the spring-like weather to get out and shoot. At our last meeting Byron Jorjorian spoke on his approach to photographing nature in all its forms. Thanks, Byron for a great presentation.

Our March meeting should be a real treat…a field trip to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts to see the Irving Penn exhibit. Unfortunately our member docent, Susan Striepe, is in the process of completing her thesis and is not working with the Frist center this semester. That means I will be scheduling the tour and handling the finances (Oh, boy!).

The cost for the tour will be $10.00 ($9.00 for seniors) for non-Frist members. Parking is separate. I can think of no easy way to collect this from you, so “snail” (USPS) mail seems the only option…yes: envelopes, stamps, paper checks or cash, etc. just like back in the day. I need it ASAP. If you ARE a member of the Frist and plan to attend, please let me know also, because we need to know the total number of participants.

5012 Longstreet Drive
Brentwood, TN 37027

The tour is scheduled for Thursday7:00 pm March 30th. Note the time and date change due to the Frist schedule. Please plan to arrive early because of the notorious Nashville rush hour and parking. Look for us in the main hall near the kiosk.
