From the Chair, November/December 2013

I hope all of you had a great autumn season filled with exciting photography! We begin the winter holidays with two events that celebrate nature with the images we create.

Early December, we return to Calumet Gallery NYC, with our next big group photography exhibit, Encounters with Nature. Anastasia Tompkins has selected all new work by our members. As ever, we will need volunteers to help put up the show, help at the gala reception and to restore the gallery when we take the show down. We thank those who already have offered their help last meeting, yet more volunteers are needed to make the work go faster. Please contact Stephanie Schmidt at

We then look forward to seeing your new work as we share a Members’ Night and a Holiday Season Party with the NYC Sierra Club Group this December 18. We warmly welcome them to our upcoming Holiday Celebration and thank them for their joint contribution toward the wine, spirits and refreshments that we all share. We wish everyone a joyous holiday season! —Charles Dexter, Chair
