It looks like we’re in store for another hot Sunday—all the reason to chill at the Sunday Afternoon Salon. It’s the perfect place

to relax with like-minded friends, look at photographs, and talk about photography. This Sunday, we are excited to have Brie Castell

and Heidi Gruner from Castell Photography as our special guests. Castell Photography is Asheville, NC’s only fine art photography

gallery and both Brie and Heidi have done wonders for the photography scene in the Asheville area. They will be here to promote their

upcoming photography competition and exhibition titled Road. The juror for Road will be W.H. Hunt, an avid and serious photography

collector, former New York gallery owner, and when it comes to photography, he’s one of the most knowledgeable people that I know. Also, Bryce Lankard has been working hard on Frank: In Focus, the two-month long festival of photography in the Triangle Area. The latest schedule of exhibitions and forums on photography is out and there’s definitely something for every photography lover. The Uptown

Charlotte security perimeter for the DNC has been decided and we’ll talk about where you can and cannot go to photograph what’s happening

on the streets. There should be a lot of photo opportunities since as many as 10,000 demonstrators could show up. The 10thAnniversary

Lucie Awards—“celebrating the greatest achievements in photography the world over”—have also been announced and we’ll take a look at this year’s winners (I’m happy to see that Arthur Tress will be honored for Achievement in Fine Art). And as always, feel free to share your own photographs with the group. The Sunday Afternoon Salon will be held once again at The Light Factory in the Art Studio on the third floor, #307 (when you enter Spirit Square from College Street, walk up the short flight of steps and enter the elevator to your left. Go to the third floor and exit left.

You’ll see the Art Studio at the end of the hall). Free to members of The Light Factory, the Salon happens the third Sunday of every month.

Attendees are welcome to bring food and/or drink.
