In honor of our first meeting in nearly six months (not counting the Backyard Biennial), we had six artists present work at Gottscheer Hall. Our new meeting spot is a local bar and cultural hub that in it's over ninety years in operation has housed weddings, beauty pageants, dances, and now our humble Marble Hill Camera Club.
Our next meeting is scheduled for December 16th, and out of town guest speakers will make for a lively time.
We're looking for a few donations: a decent bluetooth speaker that can fill a small hall with sound, a small guitar amp that a vocal microphone could be plugged into, a microphone, and mic stand so that we can not only hear our speakers but begin to record these mini lectures for posterity sake. Our club runs entirely on the donations of the people that come to our meetings, and it's worked really well so far. There are a few things we'd like to improve, and sound is an important one.

Visual Aids, Postcards from the Edge
Postcards from the Edge 2017 raised over $94,000 to-date for the programs
of VISUAL AIDS. There were 1,432 postcard-sized works on display by artists from around the world, and over a thousand people attended the event. Our gratitude goes out to all the participating artists and everyone who comes out to support Visual AIDS, enabling us to produce AIDS-focused contemporary art programs and provide supplies and assistance to artists living with HIV/AIDS, many who are unable to continue producing work without such support.
Postcard must be mailed by December 4th | Application information here.

Whoop Dee Doo, The Knockdown Center
Marble Hill Camera Club alum, Jaimie Warren's fabulous Whoop Dee Doo project is performing at the
Knockdown Center on December 16th. This month, Whoop Dee Doo artists stage a long term installation in Knockdown Center’s Annex, working closely with teens from Maspeth Town Hall Community Center and local performance groups Ñukanchik Llakta Wawakuna and students from the Calpulli Community – a program of Calpulli Mexican Dance Company – to create a series of free public programs that culminate in a final live performance and immersive set. The final performance will emphasize and celebrate the historic diversity of Queens, and the creative talents of Knockdown Center’s surrounding community.
