"In photography, the smallest thing can be a great  
subject. The little human detail can become a leitmotiv."

Please join us for an informal, mix-and-mingle style Night at the PRC featuring a gallery pin-up of small prints created as a result of the themed "assignment" issued below. If you wish to participate in the gallery pin-up party by showing your prints, you must register ahead of time by emailing Each assignment participant is asked to bring a maximum of 5 prints no larger than 11 x 14 inches to pin up on the gallery walls for the Night.
