July Was a Busy Month!

Damsel Fly 2 - Kathy Lauerer

Damsel Fly 2 – Kathy Lauerer


Lori Moilanen organized a nature photowalk on the 11th at Willow River State Wildlife Area at Three Lakes. Damselflies, caterpillars, butterflies and wildflowers were the chief subject matter. On the 18th, Bryan Leonard and I hosted a Milky Way shoot just south of Deer Park. It was a beautiful night well spent with club friends. You can check out the nature gallery here and the Milky Way shoot here.

Westfields Hospital Exhibit & Reception

The club’s group exhibit was hung on the 8th and we had a great turnout for the reception which was held on the 23rd. It was especially nice to see members that showed up to support our club. We have received a lot of positive feedback on the quality and variety of work, including the sale of two pieces so far. It’s not too late to see the exhibit… it will be there until October 4.  Thanks to Ron Raymond for attending and getting these pictures.
