We publish our Newsletter during each of our exhibits to pass along information and reviews of the exhibit, selected images and news of participation opportunities at Image City. We thank you for your interest and we look forward to another great year of fine photographs and events. We hope to see you at each of the 13 shows we produce in 2018.

Our current exhibit at Image City is our Holiday Show 2018 featuring the work of Gallery Partners, Artists-in-Residence, and ten Guest Photographers. It is our 14th Annual Holiday Show. We expand our holiday visiting and purchasing opportunities to include Monday, December 3, 10, and 17. For this exhibit, buyers may take photographs with them at the time of purchase, rather than wait until the end of the show. You will find a diverse exhibit of photographs ranging from scenic landscapes to the abstract to Antarctica. Certainly you could find one that would be perfect to purchase for your home or office décor or for a novel gift that friends and family would long appreciate. At the same time you will lend your support to the exhibiting artists and the Gallery.

The Holiday Show 2018 exhibit is sponsored by our neighbor, Carla M. Morris, Financial Advisor, Edward Jones located just down the avenue at 706 University Avenue. We thank Carla for her continuing support at Image City.

Guest Photographers are Dennis Adams, Mark Bangs, Dave Braitsch, Clyde Comstock, Lisa Cook, Bruce C. Elling, Anthony Ryan, Patty Ulrich Singer, Ted Tatarzyn, and Dick Thomas. Artists-in-Residence are Jim Patton, David Perlman, Gary Thompson and Phyllis Thompson. Gallery Partners are Dick Bennett, Carl Crumley, Steve Levinson, Gil Maker, Don Menges,  Luann Pero, Betsy Phillips, John Solberg, and Sheridan Vincent.
