Hudson – Assabet Valley Camera Club (AVCC), now going into its 33rd year as a Hudson-based photography organization, meets the first and third Wednesdays of the month from September through early June.
In 1985, a small group of people who took an evening photography course at Assabet Valley Regional Vocational High School decided to form the camera club. Currently AVCC has over 50 members of all ages, with both amateur and professional experience, from 15 different communities in the greater Metrowest area.
Anyone interested in photography and expanding their pictorial skills is welcome to attend the next meeting Wednesday, Sept. 5. Following a short business meeting, the evening’s program will feature a “Members’ Showcase,” where individuals will briefly present their photographic images based on a theme or highlights of their summer experiences.
AVCC meetings are held in the Great Room at the Hudson Senior Center, 29 Church St., and begin at 7:30 p.m. The first meeting of the month generally features a program designed to instruct and/or to entertain camera enthusiasts. During the second monthly meeting, member entries of both print and digital images are judged and critiqued by qualified individuals. Assabet Valley Camera Club, a member of both the New England Camera Club Council and the Photographic Association of America, also participates in interclub competitions on regional, national and international levels.
The presentation is free and open to the general public. AVCC welcomes anyone interested in learning more about photography as a visual art and its practical application as a science. Members benefit from the hands-on experiences, the knowledge presented in programs, and having their work critiqued.
