March Meeting at the Frist…

IMPORTANT REMINDER: The March meeting of S.N.A.P. is a field trip to the Frist Center for a tour of the Irving Penn exhibit. We will NOT meet at Dury’s on Tuesday. Instead, we will assemble near the information booth in the Frist no later than 6:45 pm on the evening of March 30. The cost for the tour will be $10.00 ($9.00 for seniors) for non-Frist members. Parking is separate.

So far, only six people plus myself have confirmed for this event, but I expect we will have the minimum necessary for our scheduled tour. Please check in with me so I can collect the fee from non-Frist members and to make sure of our number for our total group.

I have heard this is an excellent exhibit and I’m looking forward to seeing all of you then.

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!). Continue reading

If you haven’t heard, an excellent retrospective of Irving Penn’s large and diverse work is open at the Frist Center for Visual Arts.  The exhibit is titled “Beyond Beauty” and definitely worth going to at least once if not more!  The exhibit runs until May 29th.

The Frist has prepared a gallery guide that is very informative, check it out: Beyond Beauty: Gallery Guide

February SNAP Notes…

Next Meeting:

Winter, at least what passes for it around here, proceeds. Personally, I shot as much, or more, during this time of year than in the summer. For a transplanted Yankee, southern summers are like northern winters: a time to stay in climate controlled environs. Since now and during the upcoming Spring is a good time for nature photography, our speaker this month is Byron Jorjorian.
