MAIN GALLERY & FOYER:
Memphis Camera Club: Life on the Mississippi
May 26 - August 2, 2017
Artists' Reception: Friday, May 26, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
The Memphis Camera Club (MCC) exists to promote and educate about photography. Its ongoing partnership with Christian Brothers University via the Beverly & Sam Ross Gallery in the Plough Library is a valued relationship.
A key vehicle for fulfilling our mission is to extend the individual talent in the club through exhibitions such as “Life on the Mississippi” and MCC’s “Year-End Competition Winners.”
In the course of promoting photography and educating others about it, the club also has the opportunity to share reflections of life and cultural experiences as they unfold in Greater Memphis and beyond. The two collections of images that make up the exhibits that will be on display May 26-August 2 at the Ross Gallery are fine examples of what the MCC does with such an opportunity.
Organized on April 1, 1893, MCC remains committed to providing its members — from beginners to professionals — with educational and skill-building opportunities in the art of photography. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in photography and all skill levels are welcome. Our 100-plus members range from newbies to professionals, who are able and willing to share their knowledge.
The Memphis Camera Club meets on Thursday nights at the Longinotti Auditorium at St. Francis Hospital. Its current president is Michael Pachis. If you would like to join in the fun, please visit the MCC membership info page.
