CICCA Spring Salon

Hello PCC Members,  I have been receiving emails regarding the upcoming Spring Salon.  I am the new CICCA rep, so I thought I would fill you in before we have  a train wreck on our hands. ( See what I did there).  The turn in is on the 24th of this month, April for those of you not aware.  The cost for the Salon is 4 puny dollars per digital and print.  That’s 8 dollars if you enter both digital and print. 4+4=8.  Mom would be so proud. Please go to the ciccaclubs.com website, click on the spring salon documents menu and open the spring salon invitation to gain all of the knowledge needed to enter.   If you need any assistance, please feel free to email me and I will try my best to assist you. You can also email the webmaster for CICCA, again me, so either way you can’t loose. Please put CICCA in your email title so I don’t send you to spam.

Tonight’s meeting: Craig Stocks and Jim Burnham

Come out tonight for a presentation by Craig Stocks in the first half. Jim Burnham will do a short presentation on the Black Hills Photo Shootout in the second half.

Craig Stocks is a local landscape, portrait and fine art photographer. He offers workshops on night sky photography and other topics. From his website:

After working in the newspaper and studio businesses for several years, I chose to leave professional photography in 1977 to pursue a career as a mechanical engineer. Over the years, I retained my interest in photography, and the advent of digital processing rekindled my passion.  I was able to retire at the beginning of 2009 and began an encore career in photography with an emphasis on fine art large scale landscape and abstract figure photography.

I’m also active in the local Central Illinois arts community. I am an active volunteer member of the ArtsPartners of Central Illinois marketing committee and I am currently helping organize the Central Illinois Artist Organization 1st annual CIAO Art Experience and Exhibition as part of the 2014 Ignite Peoria arts celebration (www.ignitepeoria.com).  I also publish the Playing Peoria website where I feature photos and stories about local artists and entertainers.

I’ve been fortunate to be able to work with the U.S. National Park Service. In 2009, I served as an Artist in Residence / volunteer photographer at the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Southern Arizona, and in 2010, I served part time as a volunteer photographer for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in San Francisco. For 2011, I’ve been selected as one of two Artists in Residence at the Necedah National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin. It’s a great way to support the National Park system while doing something I love.
