Monday, December 10, 2018

The Photographic Society of Chattanooga will hold a reception at the Gallery at Blackwell, 71 Eastgate Loop in Chattanooga, on Jan. 10, 2019, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. to present the winter show.   Refreshments will be provided, and the public is welcome.  "Please come out and view the wonderful fine art images of the members of the Photographic Society of Chattanooga," officials said.

PSC members have their works displayed at the Gallery at Blackwell.  Prints are on display for viewing and purchasing.  The hours of operations for the Gallery are Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m.  The show will end on April 4, 2019.

Thursday, Jan. 17, 2019, the PSC will present Joe Anderson.  Mr. Anderson has been photographing as a hobby and professionally since 1958.  After retiring in the 1990’s, he traveled all over Europe, Scandinavia and Iceland photographing the wonders of these places.  In 2012, Joe started traveling all over the U.S., via motor home, volunteering for U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services at refuges from coast to coast.  This has provided him the opportunity to photograph many species protected by the refuges.  Mr. Anderson’s program will be “Photographing & Volunteering at Wildlife Refuges.”  The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. at the St. John United Methodist Church, 3921 Murray Hills Dr. in Chattanooga.  Visitors are welcome.

For beginners or photographers that want to get their camera off of “automatic,” join Boot Camp at 6 p.m.  Gayle Domanski will be discussing, “Beginning Photoshop Filters.”
