    The Pagosa Photo Club is pleased to announce this month’s program — “Matting and Framing” — to be presented by Linda Pampinella.

    As noted on her website, Pampinella’s work has been published in Durango Magazine and New Mexico Magazine, has won numerous awards and has been included in juried shows at the Durango Arts Center, the Center of Southwest Studies, the Farmington Museum, SHY RABBIT, the Pagosa Springs Arts Council, the Center for Fine Art Photography, (Fort Collins, Colo.), and the Old Court House Arts Center (Woodstock, Ill.). Her images are permanently exhibited in The Fifth Corner Photo Gallery, her gallery upstairs in the Durango Arts Center.

    Members are also encouraged to bring 10–15 photographs on a flash drive or CD, “member’s choice,” for review following the program, as time permits.

    Photography enthusiasts at all levels of ability are invited to attend club meetings at no charge for the first meeting. If interested, you are invited to join for annual dues of $20 for individuals, $30 for a family membership, and $10 for a student membership. The photography club meets the second Wednesday of each month from September through May at SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts.

    Club members are reminded that prints selected for the club’s 10th annual Juried Print Exhibit must be ready for display, framed and delivered to the Pagosa Photography Studio and Gallery at 480 San Juan St., across from the courthouse no later than close of business Nov. 20.
