Photographic Arts Group
The goal of the Photographic Arts Group is to help our members achieve their potential in film and digital photography. We encourage sharing photographs for discussion and critique to help each other achieve that potential. Monthly guests are invited to present to the group. Technical and other aspects of photography are discussed at meetings as well. In the summer, the group heads out on photo shoots around the state. All levels of experience are welcome.
The Photographic Arts Group is included with your paid membership to the Wickford Art Association. The group meets on the second and fourth Monday of each month at the Wickford Art Association's Gallery at 7:00 p.m. For more information please email co-chairs Gina Campbell and Paul Mello at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Art can change the world. Art has often been used to raise awareness and influence opinion. Photographs really can spark dialogue. They can also provide a platform to the voiceless in society. Unfortunately Rhode Island is last in the United States to provide affordable housing to those who need it most. Jan Armor will show photographs of those in need and discuss how he and a group of like-minded people hope to use pictures to raise awareness. Please join us at 7 PM - free and open to the public.
Monday, November 12th - no meeting on Veterans Day.

SEEING IRAN WITH FRESH EYES:
A JOURNEY FROM ANTIQUITY TO MODERNITY
Howard Rotblat-Walker and his wife, Susan, traveled to more than 18 cities and towns, including 13 of the 22 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Iran in February and March of this year. Their trip came almost 50 years after Howard first arrived in Iran to do doctoral research. He will share experiences and photographs of Iran's heritage and hospitality from his first residence in Iran and his most recent travel.
