In 2017, we showcased the work of over 115 photographers on our walls, hosted 10 fine art exhibitions, and served over 402 free bagels at our monthly Coffee & Critique sessions. We offered over 100 photography classes in 2017, providing over 1,000 hours of photo instruction to our student community. Photoworks is dedicated to meeting the needs of young photographers. This year, we mentored 12 young photography interns and hosted over 10 in-depth photo summer camp programs. And for those interested in feedback? We offered over 15 professional portfolio reviews to all of you. Yes. It has been a very good year.

In 2018, we intend to continue and expand our vision.

Short term, we need:

  • Two computers to add to our 4 updated computers purchased last year
  • Wacom Pro medium
  • Overhead projection system
  • New ceiling lighting to help better facilitate portfolio critiques
  • Additional bookcases and a book fund for continuing the purchase of significant photography books

Long term, we hope to accomplish:

  • A redesigned floor plan that will create a dedicated exhibition area and a dedicated classroom space.
  • An expanded scholarship programs to further our commitment to mentoring, outreach and diversity.
  • A larger youth photography program to meet the needs of our young photographers.

Our vision for a strong Artistic Community dedicated to the art of photography has not changed since our founding 45 years ago.

We look forward to seeing each and every one of you in the coming year, and hope that you can help us maintain our goals and support us as we meet the opportunities and challenges ahead.

Happy New Year!
