July 27, 4pm- Join Guild members Eileen McCarney Muldoon and David Pinkham for a photowalk.

Where- We'll meet on the side porch of the Newport Art Museum

Leaders- Eileen Muldoon and David Pinkham


We invite you to join us for this Photo Walk. After a brief presentation we’ll ask you to go off and capture the Spirit of Newport. When you think about this wonderful city what comes first to your mind? Mansions? People? Architecture? Boats? Something else? Capture images that reflect your sense of Newport.

We will gather afterwards for dinner for anyone who wants to join us.

It is our hope that after the Photo Walk you will share your images with us. We will then put together a slide show that will be shown during an upcoming fall Photo Guild meeting.

Newport Antique Show has a photographic presentation!

Elliott Landy, the official photographer of the 1969 Woodstock Festival which was billed as "Three Days of Peace & Music", captured images of the greatest music legends of the sixties from Bob Dylan to Janis Joplin and the new rock music counterculture. On Friday July 28, 2017 at 11am, Landy will discuss what it was like to attend Woodstock, which was one of the most important cultural events of the twentieth century and defined a generation. He will also comment on the importance of preserving the vision and essence of the festival, whose impact far exceeded three days. Elliot Landy’s photographs will be featured at the Show, on display and for sale, at Jessica Hagen Fine Art + Design.

Programs are presented in the Ilgenfritz Gallery in the Newport Art Museum at 7:00 PM, DOORS OPEN at 6:30pm(unless noted otherwise). Prior to the start of the program members are invited to bring recent work to informally share with those attending. Programs start with a very short PhotoGuild meeting. The Guild board has dinner at Griswold's Tavern, across the street from the museum, 5:30 to 6:00-ish often with the speaker. Members are welcome to join in the fun.

Most programs are free and open to the public. If you are thinking of joining the PhotoGuild, join us for a program and meet our members.

We welcome photographers with all levels of abilities!
