Considering the museum-like ambience, patronage, and public interest in the Dorchester Center for the Arts (DCA) this is likely to be the best Tidewater Camera (TCC) exhibit ever.  The Tidewater Camera Club of Easton, Maryland will be exhibiting photographs at the DCA in Cambridge beginning Friday June 3 through Sunday, June 26.  An artists’ reception is planned for Saturday, June 11 from 5:00 p.m. to  7:30 p.m., with music and light refreshments. The DCA is located at 321 High St. Cambridge, MD.

The exhibit will cover a variety of subjects, including Eastern Shore vistas, street photography, shore scenes, waterfowl, and many other topics reflecting some of the best work of many Tidewater Camera Club photographers.  It will also include judging for “Print of the Year” by renowned National Geographic and speaker Robert Madden.

The Tidewater Camera Club is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1963 with a current membership of 85.  The club meets on the first and third Monday of each month from September through May at the Talbot County Community Center in Easton, Maryland. The Club’s membership is comprised of amateur and professional photographers throughout the mid-shore region.  The Club’s mission is to educate, promote and share the enjoyment of photography.  For more information, visit www.tidewatercameraclub.org.
