The Photographic Arts Society will present their ninth annual Member Exhibit at the Ainsworth - Gallery, 721 Taylor Street, in Joliet from 1 July to 2 August 2013.
A wide variety of framed, original photographs, in black and white and color, will be on display. All exhibited works will be available for sale and a portion of the proceeds will go towards the Photographic Arts Society's member programs and its annual scholarship, awarded each year to a talented photography student in the area. The exhibit is a chance to foster the arts in Joliet and surrounding areas and to showcase talented local artists in an elegant gallery setting. The Ainsworth - Gallery is Joliet's oldest commercial art gallery showing original work by living artists.
The mission of the Photographic Arts Society is to provide a network of fellowship for individuals, both amateur and professional, interested in expanding their photographic skills as well as those who appreciate photography as an artistic expression. Their goal is to foster interest in photography and to provide an open forum for members to enhance their skills. The focus is on film and digital photography, and all art appreciation. Photographic Arts Society meetings are held the third Thursday of each month at the Ainsworth - Gallery, 721 Taylor Street, in Joliet. Photography enthusiasts of all skill levels from all areas of Chicagoland are encouraged to attend. The monthly meeting features a guest speaker and a chance for members to share their recent work with the group.
