Hi everyone,

We’re in the process of preparing for the 2017-2018 club season, updating the website throughout the next few months, and posting info on the blog periodically.  Today’s posts will cover time-sensitive dates regarding exhibits, contests and photo ops that I have seen advertised, along with other miscellaneous items.  If you have any information to share, please send an email to president@tidewatercameraclub.org.

Thanks, Janet

Exhibits and Contests:

Dorchester Center for the Arts July in the Gallery:  An exhibit entitled “Photographic Commentary” by Steve Dembo will continue until July 30th.  During the artist’s reception, Steve suggested that this would be an ideal time for the club members to view the show and critique his work!  He is open to suggestions on how to improve his images (with the exception of comments concerning “lack of detail in the blacks” and “blown-out whites” as these are intentional).  His work is diverse and compelling.  Check it out!  www.dorchesterarts.org
