Virgie R. Fleenor Art Gallery to Feature Twin City Photo Club in Exhibit in January & February

January 3 – February 27, 2013

The first exhibit of the New Year in the Bristol Public Library’s Virgie R. Fleenor Art Gallery will feature the Twin City Photo Club (TCPC) of Bristol, VA.

In 2007, Mark Marquette and Jackie Dennison founded TCPC with presently about 30 members that share a love for photography. Members vary in expertise and backgrounds; some use point-and-shoot cameras while others have more professional DSLR cameras with a lot of equipment.

In 2008, TCPC hosted their first Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion Photography Competition with 88 entries. The number continues to grow each year with 224 entries this year. The club does several events with the community each year such as Believe in Bristol Pumpkin Palooza and Christmas Open House. For more information on TCPC, you can visit their website at www.twincityphotoclub.com.

TCPC’s exhibit will be on display in the Virgie R. Fleenor Art Gallery January 3rd – February 27th. The library is open Monday- Thursday 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday- Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays 2 p.m.-5 p.m.
