Exhibition Overview:

With the advent of smartphone cameras, everyone has access to the tools needed to make art. This show will celebrate the creative potential of these images. PAC Member Warren Jagger has generously volunteered to print the photographs for this show, which will be displayed in a freeform exhibition pinned to the walls of Dodge House Gallery in the month of August.
