Summit Art Photographers & Friends

Monthly meetings are held at Got Art Gallery on the 4th Thursday of the month starting with a gathering at 6:30 p.m. and the critique starting at 7:00 p.m. One of the best ways for any artist to grow and find ways to make their images better and raise the quality of their finished works is to participate in critiques. For over six years now Summit Art Photographers & Friends have been meeting once a month in a social setting as a joint critique with each photographers submitting images for all present to view and offer suggestions as to image capture, post processing, and presentation. Summit Art members and the general public are welcomed to attend.
