Change to agenda for the November meeting

I've just learned that next month's speaker will be Seth Berkowitz instead of Pierre, who has kindly stepped aside until February. Seth will talk about portraiture and an idea that has come up involving both Photosynthesis and the club.

Photography Exhibition

An exhibition of images from South America, by Stasia Garraway is opening at the Salty Pear Gallery this week, Friday June 9th 5 to 10 PM. The gallery is at 270 Rainbow Road (across from the Rainbow road pool). Stasia is a lovely young woman  whom I met recently. An excellent photographer, this will be her first show and will be well worthwhile taking in. The show runs until September 30th.
