Holiday Show 2019   

Current Show Runs Through Sunday, December 22

First Friday Gallery Night, December 5, 5 - 9 pm       


Our current exhibit at Image City Photography Gallery is our Holiday Show 2019 featuring the work of Gallery Partners, Artists-in-Residence, and ten Guest Photographers. It is our 15th Annual Holiday Show. We expand our holiday visiting and purchasing opportunities to include Monday, December 2, 9, and 16. 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. 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 2010 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 Marie Costanza, Tim Fuss, Rick Garvia, Theresa Maccarone, Montanus Photography Classroom, Patty Singer, Dick Thomas, and Laurie Webb. Artists-in-Residence are Jim Patton, David Perlman, Gary Thompson and Phyllis Thompson. Gallery Partners are Dick Bennett, Carl Crumley, Steve Levinson, Don Menges, Luann Pero, Betsy Phillips, John Solberg, and Sheridan Vincent.
