Ken Krautbauer and former member Jeff Bucklew participated in a show at the Pablo Cultural Art Center in Eau Claire. It was a mixed show including a variety of media including painters and sculptors. There were over 400 applicants for the show and only 53 images were selected, and of those only nine received recognition. The top three received cash, and Ken and Jeff received Honorable Mention. Surprisingly, there were three photographers in the top nine!
In the spring of 2019 Collin Geraghty, the Performing Arts Production Coordinator at the Phipps asked if our members would be willing to photograph headshots, promotional photos, and archival/production photos. Bryan Leonard, John Schultz, Fred Sobottka and Matthew Then answered the call. This has been a fun way of giving back and at the same time, experiencing the shows and enjoying a new type of photography. You can see all the show galleries here.
