Tonight, the public photography lecture at the Center for Photography at Madison features an “open house” of sorts: a chance for you to learn more about the special photography interest groups at the Center! Less of a lecture and more of a show and tell discussion, each of our six interest groups will present recent work and give an idea of what they have in store for the coming months. All are welcome to attend this free event, and learn more about photography and the wide variety of interests that area photographers are pursuing. Refreshments will be served. This is tonight at 7pm at the CPM Paterson Street Studio, 303 South Paterson, Door 2 Second Floor. More info at cpmad.org.
