At our February meeting, Richard Barrow shared two outstanding experiences he had last year:
** First, as a member of the 2017 Periscope Class sponsored by the Arts and Business Council of Nashville – see https://www.abcnashville.org/periscope/. Deadline for this year’s class is fast approaching, and Richard can give us some insights into what he gained, and answer any questions.
** Second, Richard had a great show at the airport this fall as part of the Flying Solo series – see his images at http://www.rbarrowimages.com. He also discussed his inspirations and personal analysis of each of his photographs.
