So I have been asked to put together the lecture series for the New Haven Photo Arts Collective and here are the topics I have to date - I am in the process of 'negotiating / cajoling / pleading / begging' with the speakers. January topic: contemporary American photography - a short survey February topic: tbd March topic: historical equipment April topic: toy camera photography May topic: children photography June topic: film emulsion making Once I have conformation of speakers and get closer to the dates, I will post announcements. Everyone in the area is invited! November's speakers are Michael Smith and Paula Chamlee! (Invited by someone else.) Meetings are on the first Thursday of every month at the Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven. The PAC is part of the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, the local advocate for the arts. http://www.newhavenarts.org/ http://www.kehlerliddell.com/ Regards, Art.
