NEXT MEETING:  Our next meeting is 7:00pm, November 13, at Hidden Cypress.  In keeping with our tradition for November, we'll have an open competition for Photo of the Month.  This means that entries may be of any subject and the two-year rule is waived.  The guest speaker will be Robert Lisle, on "Photography and the Artistic Intent."

GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS FIELD TRIP:  A 2-3 night trip to the waterfalls and mountain scenery in Maggie Valley, NC with optional trip to
Cataloochee Valley, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, made even more spectacular during the fall colors season.  Tom Hanley, trip leader (978) 846-1151.

CLUB FAIR A special thanks to the members who volunteered to assist at our table at the Club Fair October 6th, as well as those who were on duty at The Studio to provide information, answer questions and showcase the photo gallery and equipment available to club members.  Shown below are a few of the table volunteers:  Sam Moschella, Rich de Asla, Dale Methven, Kathy Leonard, Freddi Hoffmann and Pat Roche.


PALMETTO COMMONS EXHIBIT:  Be sure to stop by Palmetto Commons and check out the Photography Club exhibit on display this month behind the reception desk.  This is part of the community association's initiative to showcase the artistic talents of our members and those of the All About Art Club, featuring the Lowcountry theme, which will rotate between the two clubs every 4-6 weeks.  Eight of the 56 submitted photos were selected by Palmetto Commons and are now on view.  Congratulations to Corky Burt, Tom Hanley (two photos), Bob Ricketts, Freddi Hoffmann, Tom Lehrer, Chuck Thomas and John Burrack.  Special thanks to John and the other volunteers who installed the photos September 28th, and for valuable assistance in producing gallery-quality prints - they look fabulous!


STUDIO EXHIBIT:  Be sure to check out our new exhibit, "Studio Exhibit October 2018," which was installed October 13.  As always, check the studio calendar to be sure the studio is open and not reserved for a class other purpose. 

OFF-SITE EXHIBIT:  Our next exhibit will be installed October 20 at Hilton Head Hospital, and there will be room for more photos than at other venues.  Watch for further information.
