SUBMITTED PHOTOS More than 115 children participated in Saturday’s Easter egg hunt at Southport Park.

The Indiana Photographic Society and its original six members held their first meeting Sept. 6, 2006, at the Garfield Park Arts Center.
All enthusiasts of classic film photography, the members’ goals were to produce and promote fine art photography while seeking opportunities to show and sell their work – opportunities that the center has been happy to provide.
“Our first program was ‘Understanding the Difference Between Digital and Traditional Photography,’ said the society’s Tony Carlino. “Film became obsolete at such an alarming rate that we evolved into a strictly digital format.”
Over the years the relationship between the society and the center has grown stronger.
The club now boasts about 25 active members who use old and new photographic techniques. Meetings are held at 7 p.m. every Wednesday at the center, and guests are welcome.
The society’s latest exhibition, “Picture Indiana,” will get underway Saturday, April 2, with a free opening reception from 6-8 p.m. at the center, 2450 Shelby St. Regular viewing hours will be 2-9 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays, noon-4 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays through April 30. Info: 327-7135.
