Photographers of the Guild were very pleased to partner with the Deale Elks Lodge to provide local middle school students with an exciting arts experience funded by a grant from the national office of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE). Click here for a flyer with the details of this program. Muddy Creek photographer and Elks member, Joanne Riley, wrote the grant proposal and managed all aspects of the program. The reception for the "Elkie Artists" was held June 25, 2017 with much acclaim for the caliber of the photography. The participating students were excited to participate and were fun to work with. We look forward to adding new art forms each year and continuing our partnership to support the arts in our community.
