    Le Craven--March Speaker Series

    Le Craven has enjoyed taking photos since childhood when her parents taught her to shoot using a hand–me-down camera. As a kid with eye problems, seeing something or shooting something up close was a way of overcoming. As an adult, business and family interests took a precedence over photography until Le decided to get an MBA degree in 2003. With the opportunity to study in France for six months, Le purchased her first digital camera to record her travels between class. As she posted her adventures online her professional photography career was quietly begun.

    Le’s images of France combined with photos of “home” – the western United States – were the heart of her first website and art shows. While her current focus is on Southern Arizona, she recently revisited Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and Lake Tahoe, camera in hand.

    Le’s photography focuses on the soft side of the desert, favorite places like Paris, and the “other ” west. She has been a juried artist at Desert Artisan’s Gallery since early 2010.

    Annual Camera Club Potluck Fiesta

    Note: To register a guest, select 1 guest at the bottom of the registration form.

    Arrive @ 5:30pm – Dinner @ 6:00pm

    No Early Arrivals (except for workers)


    Last day to register is Monday, March 26, 2018!

    The potluck is open to all Camera Club members. Each member may bring one guest.

    Those attending are asked to bring a dish for 8 - 10 persons for each 2 attendees. Follow the chart below on what dish to bring. If your last name starts with:

    • A to J: Dessert

    • K to P: Hot Dish

    • Q to Z: Salad

    *Please note: NO plug-in pots will be allowed*

    Do not bring serving utensils. If bringing a dish that needs to be cut or divided, please cut at home. It is too time consuming to do this at the potluck. And the longer it takes us to get everything ready, the longer you will have to wait in the lobby. Thank You!

    We realize it is both Good Friday and Passover. In response, the Camera Club will be providing mac and cheese, and chicken, instead of ham this year. You are invited (if you wish) to prepare your dish to be appropriate for one of these observances.

    Disposable plates, forks, spoons & glasses will be provided. BYOB if you want something other than Water, Coffee or Tea.

    LOTS of Volunteers also needed (currently have only 10). Contact Marilyn Luehrmann ML59@sbcglobal.net to volunteer for this event.

    Please remember to call or email Marilyn if you need to cancel.
    To attend this event you must be a member of GVR and the GVR Camera Club or a guest of a member.

    Paul McCreary - April Speaker Series

    Edward Sheriff Curtis led an amazing life, leaving behind a wondrous legacy of work. He photographed and chronicled 80 different native American tribe west of the Mississippi in the early 1900s. He assembled 20 books of his work with various tribes. His completed work was called the North American Indian. He was somewhat assisted by President Theodore Roosevelt and JP Morgan, among others.

    Curtis’ obsession and mission left behind a great legacy, but ruined him physically, emotionally and economically. He died a broken man. The story is a tragic one, but left behind works that will live far into the future.

    The presentation will feature his photographs and touch on his life experiences.

    Paul McCreary grew up on an Illinois farm and got an undergraduate degree in art education. He taught art, emotionally impaired students, adults, and was a special education coordinator/TC in Michigan for 29 years, retiring in 1995.

    He developed an interest in photography while in Michigan, and continued that as he retired to Indiana and moved to Colorado in 2001 with his wife where they owned and operated a B&B. He moved to Arizona part-time in 2006 and full time in 2014.
    He teaches a variety of classes in Green Valley, including painting, and continues with photography and filmmaking. Through his interest in photography, he became aware of Edward Sheriff Curtis.
