The Los Alamos Photo Club is hosting its 22nd Annual Show April 3 through April 28 in the upstairs gallery of the Mesa Public Library. The public is invited to the April 3 opening as well as to the April 18 Club walk-through. Both events will allow guests and participants to view submitted works and to interact informally with the photographers
The show is intended to give people who live and work in Los Alamos a chance to display their photos in a formal setting. Entries are not juried. However, prints on photographic paper are expected to be framed. Participating photographers are encouraged to join the Club, but are not required to be members to display their photographs. Selected entries are published in the Club’s annual photo show book with the consent of the photographer.
Anyone interested in participating in the show must drop off their work 1:30-4 p.m. Saturday, April 1 at Mesa Public Library on Central Avenue. Participants also should provide a title and short description of their work as detailed in the entry instructions by March 31 to John and Marcee Sarracino at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
