Thanks to everyone who came out to our January meeting! We heard about our member survey results from Richard Knight, who sorted and parsed lots of data from our recent survey and made it super easy for us to see the results! We also had great presentations from Mark Dennis, Jim Patrick, Phillip Mason, Hannah Warren, Nance Manderson, and Jim Squires. Our homework assignment for the month: shoot something inspired one of their presentations. Or, show us what YOU are working on now. Find more information about the assignment and how to submit your photos here.
CURRENT EXHIBITS: Congratulations to CPG member Carol Ann Wages, who will have a solo exhibit at the Horton Gallery for the month of March. It will feature none other than Edgar Winter, the infamous rare white morph squirrel that calls our area home. Carol has captured many gorgeous photos of his antics throughout the years. Come see what he’s been up to!
