Meetings and Retreats

Over the years, our group has met monthly at different locations. Currently we meet at The Emerald Art Center in Springfield, Oregon. Members share work, ideas and techniques. PhotoZone is a juried group but visitors are always welcome and may share work. If a visitor wishes to apply for membership, a formal review process is scheduled at a regular meeting. See ‘Join PhotoZone’ in our menu.

PhotoZone is interested in prints.

We have a print review at each of our meetings. We share our work as prints only. Video projection is used only for instructional purposes. Members and visitors may bring up to 3 prints for review. It can either be a show-and-tell or a critique depending on the presenter’s preference. Prints are viewed on a lit easel and must be able to stand on their own. A simple mat is the best way to prevent damage.
