Some background info:
In 1988 a group of 18 photographers opened an exhibit in the old Midgley building on High St. in Eugene Oregon and the PhotoZone Gallery was born. Of the group's purpose a member wrote, "The primary requirement for membership is a dedication to photography as an expressive medium." A quarter century and 100+ exhibits later PhotoZone continues to provide a venue for fine art photography in Eugene. The group continues to exhibit in various locations and sponsors a juried show every July which is open only to non-members. Many photographic artists receive their first public exposure by entering PhotoZone's annual juried show.
