UW Photographers Group Exhibit

UW Photographers Group Exhibit

AT RANDOM celebrates the diverse views of 13 photographers from UW Photographers Group (UWPG). The work that you see is truly random. The photographers went freely into the world to reshape it or interpret it each in their own way. No restrictions were placed on subject matter. In common, they share the love of using light, glass, paper, dyes, silver, zeros and ones.

The show uses wall space on all three floors of Odegaard Undergraduate library. There is a comment book on the second floor where you can find more information about UWPG.

Exhibited Photographers:
Toni Laree Bennett, Kari Berger, Anita Bingaman, Greg Cooksey, Tom Christiansen, Cowboy Mike, Rose Hecker, Deborah Conger Hughes, Tess Morgan, Jeanne O�Connell, Janet Ness, Frances Tromp Van Holst, Ethan Welty.

UW Photographers Group

UW Photographers Group came together four and a half years ago in a conference room in Gowen Hall, starting with four people passionate about photography. The group has jelled into a composite of almost 75 people, about 25 of whom are consistently active in the group.

Founded by two graduates and employees of the University of Washington, Deborah Conger Hughes and Kari Berger envisaged creating a collegial environment where photographers can meet, share work and ideas, and create work for exhibition. UWPG members tend to be well traveled. Their passion has produced some extremely good and varied work.

Most members work or study on campus in a wide variety of academic and non-academic fields, and produce photographs in a dazzling variety of subject matter and style. Many have shown extensively and been published, others have not. Photographers at any level are equally welcomed.

The group meets casually on Tuesdays over coffee in the Suzzallo Library Coffee Shop, where ideas percolate and become action.

The last Tuesday of the month is reserved for the Monthly Meeting. There may be speakers, presentations, workshops, critiques, always debate, and planning for the next exhibition. The meeting takes place in the Health Sciences Center on lower campus. There are no dues or officers.
