April Meeting Notes…

S.N.A.P. at Provence Cafe

Spring is sprung, the grass is riz…and so have the photographs in our “Night” exhibition at Provence. Again, I am blown away by the quality and variety of images in the show. Be sure to be there for the Reception next Thursday, April 20 to see the show and talk with the artists.

The juror for this exhibit is Heather Lose, a creative director and fine art photographer who helped co-found the Nashville Community Darkroom and, more recently, WXNA 101.5 FM. She will be discussing the photographs she selected for the exhibit at our next meeting at Dury’s, Tuesday, April 25 beginning at 6:30. See you there!

Those who have seen it are complimentary of the quality and content of the show. If you haven’t seen it yet, this is an exhibit you shouldn’t miss. It remains until May 29. Continue reading

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.
