Have a Holiday Party at Georgia’s and David’s

Come on out to a holiday party, the theme is Black and White. Dress casually in all black, all white or a mix as you wish. Bring some black and white photos to be displayed. Lite fare provided. BYOB. Lets close out an eventful year and be thankful for a new year of photo adventures ahead. Google the address, just a bit south from Allegheny Ave Exit of I95 or just north of Lehigh Ave, take Thompson under the tracks and make a right at Indiana. Park along that street, as Tilton St is very narrow.

Opening Reception – National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week

Please join us at Legend Galleries for an evening of art, and philanthropy. Featuring work by PPL member Ruth Miller (her paintings) and fellow photographers Chris Brown and Mike Korvin.

It will be an evening to meet & greet the talented artists behind the work of “Perserverance with dignity” and “Signs of Hope.” Please come and discover what Bethesda Project is doing here in Philadelphia to end Homelessness.

Harry Potter event in Chestnut Hill

https://chestnuthillpa.com/events/harry-potter-festival-2016/

The Harry Potter Festival, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will be bigger and better than ever this year! The street will be closed from Rex Avenue to Willow Grove Avenue but the festival itself will run for a full 10 blocks all the way to Mermaid Lane. Both the Festival and the Quidditch Tournament are free and open to the public.

This will be a fun event to attend and I am sure there will be people in interesting costumes. A good photo opportunity.
I have a busy Saturday and may be able to get there later in afternoon. Express interest in the comments and make you own arrangements to meet up. This is a free event, self guided. Have fun. Probably a good time to take the Chestnut Hill East train to Wyndmoor and walk west on Willow Grove Ave to Germantown Ave. This is a very popular event, so expect big crowds. 

Extended Eye – Exhibition – Opening Reception

Project Basho presents “Extended Eye,” an exhibition featuring the work of nine students (5 PPL Members !) participating in “Your Next Photo Project: Inspiration to Exhibition,” our 10-month development-focused course. These images represent a turning point in each photographer’s way of thinking and working, and are the product of continuous hard-work, discussion, and critique among peers.

Curated by the students under the guidance of instructor Tsuyoshi Ito, the exhibition highlights these emerging photographers of varying backgrounds and the potential that each presents for our vibrant and growing photography community in Philadelphia.

Featured photographers:
Jennifer Brinton Robkin, Konrad Jones, Paul King, Chris McGlynn, Judith Murray, Alfredo Perez, Theresa Stigale, Richard Taveras, Loraine Terrell, and Richard Weiss.
