We had a very nice reception at the Ernst Center on Saturday, October 4th. As you may recall, this show was completely filled (which is a great sign) and we had to unfortunately turn-down several members. We had a great number of visitors over the 2 hours of the reception, including a number of folks who were also attending other cultural events at the Center. A special Thank You to Charlene Fuhrman-Schulz, who coordinated this exhibition and all of those who helped with the hanging.

Trudi Van Dyke, our judge, reviewed all of the work and mentioned, in her remarks that it was a very strong exhibition and stated how impressive the photography was. She presented the list of award winners, which is below.
