Call of the Open Road

 Triptych -- Cheri Jackson

The lure of the automobile is the focus of the exhibit in July at Second Story Gallery, when the Camas Camera Club presents “The Call of the Open Road.” Twenty one local photographers will display their creative take on transportation with close-ups, wide angle views, even an atmospheric buggy on a misty country road.

As usual, the show will be unveiled on First Friday, July 5, when the streets of downtown Camas are taken over by classic cars and rock and roll music. And even though the cars will be revved up and driven home at the end of the Friday night event, the photography show will continue through Saturday, July 27, at the gallery upstairs in the Camas Public Library.

“The Call of the Open Road” will feature these photography club members: Alyssa Meter, Cheri Jackson, Dale Lancaster, Henry Gerhard, John Lasher, Karen Wilson, Richard Gallant, Tom Layne, Karen Elliott, Kirsten Muskat, Joyce Lee-Westdal, Lincoln Westdal, Lois Settlemeyer, Sandy Westdal, Lou Steffey, Jim Stewart, Rick Hopper, Sherry Brookshire, Shonda Feather, Les Taylor, and Stephanie Roberts.

The Camas Camera Club meets monthly to discuss techniques and tackle photo assignments with a specific theme. Members stress they are not competitive but simply like to share their photographic journey with others of their kind.

In addition to Camera Club exhibit, the free reception will feature music by Eric and Chris Roberts who comprise The Go Project. The gallery is open until 8 p.m. on First Friday and then is open to the public during regular library hours.
