If you enjoy photo exhibits, you should find time in the next few weeks to browse through the Owensboro Photography Club exhibit on display at Kentucky Wesleyan College’s Ralph Center Gallery.
This year marks the 45th annual OPC exhibit, which is running now through November 20, from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. The exhibit is FREE and open to the public. The Ralph Center is Kentucky Wesleyan College’s Fine Arts Center located at College Drive and South Griffith.
Inside, you’ll see 36 photographs covering multiple scenes submitted by OPC members, including photos of wildlife, beach scenes, castles, flowers, storefronts and various settings around Owensboro.
The slogan for the Owensboro Photography Club, which has been meeting since the early 1950s, is “citizens with a common focus.” Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of the month at the Owensboro Area Museum of Science & History at 7 p.m. “Sometimes we’ll have guest speakers or some type of program,” said OPC President, Eddie Atherton. “It’s an interesting group of people.”
The goal of the OPC is to promote a friendly atmosphere where beginning and seasoned photographers alike can establish new friendships and improve their photographic skills by sharing their interests, constructive critique and by participating in club projects. Ultimately, it is the hope of OPC to promote photography as an art form in our community.
