Photography club to learn about matting photos

The Pagosa Springs Photography Club will meet Wednesday and Thursday evenings, Feb. 9 and 10, at the Art and Framing Center of Pagosa , 56 Talisman Drive. Join us for socializing starting at 6 p.m., followed by the demonstration/instruction at 6:30 p.m. Please note the location for this meeting.

For this month’s club meeting program, the club is pleased to present Susanne Russell on the subject of “Matting Photos.”  Susanne is an expert in picture framing and design.  She has been doing matting and framing for over 30 years. This meeting will help the artists who are the do it-yourself type. Russell said she would suggest a beginner group for Wednesday, Feb. 9, and an advanced group for Thursday, Feb. 10. Susanne will also request photos from attendees for hands-on experience. She will donate matt materials for up to 13x19 photos. Time will tell how many she can get to and demonstrate techniques throughout the evening. Come early and get in line. The free matting demonstrations at the meeting are for members only.

Please e-mail or club president T.J. Reynolds at about which night you plan to attend so Russell may prepare.

The photography club meets the second Wednesday of each month during the club year from September through May at 6 p.m. Interested photography enthusiasts are welcome to attend at no charge for the first meeting. Any and all are invited to join for annual dues of $20 for single individuals and $30 for a family membership. For more information, contact club president T.J. Reynolds at or 731-9581.
