A Guest Votes for the People’s Choice Award
All our members, volunteers and guests loved how the show displayed in UUCA’s superb gallery. The new LED spot track lights were fantastic and make it very easy to get good light on every image. And the new hanging system continues to look and work great; it made hanging so many images (we had a total of 64 photographs this year) quick and painless. We are proud to have collaborated (planning, labor and resources) with UUCA and their Art Committee to implement the hanging system!
Enjoying Food, Conversation and Fine Images at the Awards Reception
A big thank you goes to this year’s judges, Ron Sherman, Nicole Tyler and Russ Colegrove, for discerning the best among the many fine images entered, to Janerio Morgan who did a fine job as Chair of the Salon Exhibition 2016, to our many volunteer members who hung the show & provided food and libations for the awards reception, and to the many guests who attended the show!

Seeing that ten different APS members received awards emphasizes the wide range of photographic talent we are blessed with. Let’s keep pushing our creativity!
