Local Happenings of Note

The Tree 46Gang – recall that 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography winner Renée Byer will be in Peoria Thursday night to give the Bunn Lecture in Photography at Bradley University. Bunn is a Bradley grad (1980) and shot for a brief time at the Peoria Journal Star. From Bradley’s webpage:

Pulitzer Prize winner Renee C. Byer ’80 will deliver the 2008 Bunn Lecture at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, on October 2 at the Horowitz Auditorium in the Caterpillar Global Communications Center. Byer won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize in Feature Photography for a series that chronicled the journey of a mother and her son through childhood cancer.

I’ll be there – and I hope to see you there.

Also, the Post-Age Stamp show opens today at the Picture This Gallery in Peoria Heights. I am one of eight artists featured – and the show is not limited to photography. There is a reception next Friday night (Oct. 10) and the show runs through the end of the month.
