An opening reception for Birmingham and Beyond: The Photography of the Shades Valley Camera Club will be held on Sunday, April 8, 2:00-4:00 p.m., in the Fourth Floor Gallery of the Central Library. The event is free and open to the public.
The Shades Valley Camera Club (SVCC) was organized in 1954 and is one of the oldest in the United States. The club was established for the purpose of sharing the fascinating hobby of photography through knowledge, competitions, workshops, field trips, and fellowship. From silent rivers to flowing waterfalls, from baseball fields to iconic civil rights landmarks, from historic architecture to industrial scenes, this collection represents the diverse SVCC membership and their vision of the theme "Birmingham and Beyond."
