Jefferson Arts Council November Exhibit

Jefferson Arts Council (JAC) is excited to announce a group exhibit by members of the Jefferson County Photography Club in Charles Town’s Fire Hall Gallery, November 2 - 21, 2017.

There will be a light refreshments reception on Friday, November 10, 6-8pm, and all are invited to see the exhibit and meet many of the photographers.

The Jefferson County Photography Club is a member organization created to provide opportunities for photographers to share images and information and to exchange ideas. They meet every month to help each other grow and evolve as artists. Members range from beginners to professionals and the work produced by members covers the wide range of subject matter and techniques. The group meets on the second Tuesday of each month, sometimes heading out to photograph together after sharing their work. New members are always welcome.

This show is about sharing who each individual is as a photographer and artist, within the context of the Jefferson County Photography Club, and a wonderful opportunity to view a variety of images and to become acquainted with the artists as the show highlights the individual interests and voices of the photographers.

The show was judged by David Rehor, a professional photographer with 23 years experience and based in the Washington DC area. Specializing in portraiture, Rehor has provided photography work for corporate clients, magazines, ad agencies, and sells images to art buyers internationally.

Several members of the Club will be exhibiting work, including Doug Allmond, Melanie Brownsmith, Ellen Hardesty, John Kracke, Mike Keefe, Elaine Maze, Alice Newton, Kelly Riner, Rip Smith, and Paula Tremba.

The Fire Hall Gallery is located in Downtown Charles Town at 108 N. George St. The Gallery is shared with the Washington Street Artists’ Cooperative, and open seven days a week, 10am-5pm.

JAC is a member-based art organization devoted to providing opportunities in the arts for the entire community through exhibits, concerts, and workshops and through the support of art activities throughout the schools and organizations.
