February Meeting Moved to February 27th

The February Meeting has been moved to February 27th

Don't forget that our February meeting will be on the THIRD Wednesday of the month, February 20, and it will be at 7 pm at Frederick Community College. Member Gundars Osvalds will be presenting the story behind the images he captured as a 16-year-old aspiring photojournalist in the now gone Vinegar Hill neighborhood of Charlottesville, VA. These historic photos are some of the only images of people at work and at play in the African American community. His photos will be on exhibit at FCC during the month of February.

The presentation will be in the theater at the Visual Arts Performing Center, the same building where we have our summer exhibit. ASL interpretation will be provided. Because this event is free and open to the public, we could use some volunteers to help with staffing the refreshment table, to sell exhibit catalogs, and to give some technology assistance. Please let Cam know if you are willing to help.

Here is a link to a PDF flyer about the meeting/event. Please share this with other people and organizations you know would be interested in both the history and the photography that Gundars will share.
