Some background info

In 1988 a group of 18 photographers opened an exhibit in the old Midgley building on High St. in Eugene, OR -- the PhotoZone Gallery was born.  Of the groups purpose a reviewer wrote, “The primary requirement for membership is a dedication to photography as an expressive medium.”  A quarter century and 100+ exhibits later PhotoZone continues to be a venue for fine photography in Eugene.

The group continues to exhibit in various locations and sponsors a juried show every July which is open only to non-members.  Many photographic artists receive their first public exposure by entering PhotoZone’s annual juried show.
