Sumac_MG_2810-13_HDR2_5x3-5The Creative Imagers Camera Club is a group of local photographers of various skill levels who have in common a love of taking pictures, and a desire to share our work. Our club members will display their work at the Community Room of the Wood Library starting June 15th and continuing through the month of July.

The Creative Imagers all have unique styles, and this will be apparent and appreciated in the wide
variety of subjects — landscapes, nature, people, modern life, art and architecture — and the wide variety of approaches.
