2016 - JUNE:
OUR NEXT SUMMER RECEPTION IS AUGUST 6 AND WILL AGAIN PROVIDE A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO MEET OUR ARTISTS, ENJOY REFRESHMENTS.
SAVE THE DATE FOR A FUN EVENING!
Featured Artist: Joe Whyte

I first got interested in photography while in Vietnam in 1971. After purchasing my first SLR, I photographed the people I knew and street scenes in Saigon and around the country. After returning home I went back to college and got degrees in Liberal Arts and Photography. In 1979 I went back to school again at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena for my B.F.A. in photography.

I worked in Commercial and Product Photography for ten years and then moved to Crestline, Ca. Where finding commercial work was very difficult. I then started selling camera first at Claremont Camera then at Samy's Camera in Santa Ana.

I've been retired now for 5 years and have returned to my first love, Scenic and Nature Photography. I really enjoy the outdoors and traveling. I find the San Bernardino Mountains an ideal location for not only it's scenic wonders, but, also as a location near the coast, the deserts and other mountain ranges.

Artist Opportunities:
The Rotary Art and Wine Festival: July 25 and 26th at Tavern Bay

Once again, we will have 70+ booths filled with every imaginable genre of art, from functional woodworking to classic and timeless paintings to grace your home.
