I think good dreaming is what leads to good photographs―Wayne Miller
While most of us have had (or will have) our artwork hanging on the distinguished walls of the Photographic Arts Building, some members are working hard to share their work in the community as well. They are putting themselves, and their artwork out there in galleries, art shows and international competitions.
Support your friends. Listen to their ideas. Goto their events. Share their posts. Celebrate their victories and remind them of their importance after their failures.
A little support can go a very long way in someone’s life
When one of our members succeeds, it is cause to celebrate! I’d like to suggest that we all take the time to support our fellow artists and celebrate their victories with them. I can say from my personal experience that some of the best moments in an artist’s reception is when my friends show up! It means the world to me that they took time out of their day to come check out my show.
I know it is easy to get wrapped up in our own artistic works, not to mention the rigor of daily life, but if you can take the time out to go to fellow club members’ shows I can guarantee they’ll appreciate it! Let’s lift up our fellow artists!
If your work is being shown in a gallery or other venue, let me know so I can add it to the Newsletter and our Facebook Events calendar. We want to celebrate with you!

It is with a heavy heart that we are reporting the sad news that fellow Darkroomer, Bill Rehm, passed away earlier this week.
Bill was a gentle soul. And, if you did not know who he was, that was by design. You see Bill was an extremely quiet and revered man who simply aspired to be a great photographer. He worked tirelessly to be as creative as he could be and always challenged himself to learn new creative skills.
Bill was married to Joan Everds and the two of them worked lovingly together, sharing their passion for photography and learning how to be creative. They were each other's inspiration―which you could tell from the work they contributed to the club.
