The Juneau Photo Group, or “JPG” will be showing photos at two First Friday events on March 7th. Photos will be exhibited at the KTOO studios (all month) and at 228 Seward St.
The JPG is a group of local photo enthusiasts–both professional and amateur–who share a love of photography and sharing this interest with others. The group now has over 1000 members.
We’d love to see you at either or both of our First Friday events!
