“Palm Beach Photographic Centre’s next exhibition will present dozens of stunning pictures, taken all over the world, by three of our most distinguished member photographers,” says NeJame.
+ Barron G. Collier, III: A longtime resident of Cody, Wyoming, who now has a home in Palm Beach, Collier is a strong supporter of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West and has actively supported several other nonprofit organizations, including the Colorado Springs School, the upper Southfork Land Owners Association, and the Rehabilitation Center for Adults and Children in Palm Beach.
+ Alexander W. Dreyfoos: Palm Beach County’s leading cultural philanthropist is chairman and owner of The Dreyfoos Group, a private capital management firm that grew out of the success of Photo Electronics Corp, which he formed in 1963. He was the founding chairman of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, spearheaded the campaign to build the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, and was the guiding force behind the development and growth of the Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach.
+ Leslie Slatkin: The second place winner of the Photo Centre’s recent 21st annual Members’ Show, Slatkin lives in Palm Beach and says, “Having spent most of my life designing sets and wardrobe for advertising, it tuned my eye on how to look at spaces and people.
Extreme travel – North Korea, Patagonia, Cuba, Falkland Islands – has allowed me the opportunity to share my eye with others.”
The public is invited to a FREE opening reception on Tuesday, November 21, from 6 to 8 pm.
Exhibition is running from November 22 – January 5, 2018
