Exposure is a Photography Festival running this month at various venues, check link for actual dates and times at each venue under 2018 Festival. I have selected a number of exhibits to visit today and you can come for some or all. We will walk between the galleries for a total distance of about 4 km. We may stop for coffee partway. Allot approximately 5 hours. Please be flexible as to how our time is spent.

We will meet at 11:45 AM in Eau Claire Market in the food court area at tables in front of the Subway restaurant.

Our planned itinerary:
First stop: Festival Headquarters in Eau Claire Market, emerging photographers.

1:00 to 2:00 Walking tour of The Fence outdoor photography exhibition, led by the creators of the project from Brooklyn, NY, Sam Barzilay and Dave Shelley.

From 2:00 to about 5:00 we will visit three galleries near 11th Ave and 8th St SW that are having opening receptions. Usually the artists are on hand to answer questions and there may be refreshments:
Newzones, 730 11th Ave SW
Herringer Kiss Gallery, 709A 11th Ave SW
Paul Kuhn Gallery, 724 11th Ave SW. This will be the end of the event and participants can head back to their parked car or nearest public transit stop.

I believe admission will be free or by donation but please be prepared to pay entrance fees.

Please come dressed for spending time both indoors and out, for walking and for being on your feet for approx. 5 hours.
